The Host (w/ Owen Shiflett)
The Canon #125 October 23, 2017
Owen Shiflett of Shudder joins Amy this week to discuss the 2006 South Korean monster film “The Host.” They talk about how “The Host” helped launch director Bong Joon-ho into the mainstream and why it’s uniquely playful tone makes it stand out among the genre. Plus, they ask the hard questions about the monster’s physiology before assessing the artistic merit of the film’s messiness. Should “The Host” enter The Canon?
