Bong Joon-ho’s take on the creature feature is a signature Bong genre-bender, combining unabashed big-screen spectacle with sharp social satire for an environmentally-minded, anti-imperialist monster movie that has teeth in more ways than one. The highest-grossing South Korean film of all time upon its release in 2006, The Host has only grown more relevant in the 14 years since its completion.
