DescriptionSix friends hire a medium to hold a seance via Zoom during lockdown, but they get far more than they bargained for as things quickly go wrong.

There are well-placed jump scares, ones made all the more impressive by the fact we are seeing them via webcam.

"Host" observes uncannily the supernatural, ephemeral, and material worlds colliding together, gesturing toward an uncertain future.
Though the film gets off to a slow start, once the scares start coming, Savage has his audience in the palm of his hand.

Host is a lean, nasty little exercise that might not linger for very long but it shows what can be done during this difficult time.
An effective shocker for our quarantine times.
Good directors embrace limitations, and Rob Savage has more than proven his worth on this front.

And absolutely nothing like a mockumentary horror movie in quarantine.

The experience of constant peering into the darkness of the corridors is not highly appreciated. Translated to English
