I actually rented it, but mostly because I couldn't afford to buy it at the time, truck payments/insurance kills you when you work as a cashier at a grocery store lol

*spoilers*


Yeah, Gang-du pulls his daugther and the boy out of the creature after it's killed. His daughter is dead, but the boy is alive. He realizes that the boy had been trapped with Hyun-seo down there and decides to take him in as his own.

I just thought it was great that they broke convention like that. Everything about this movie goes against the grain and does things you don't expect, breaking traditions, taboo, and cliches in the process. Once the creature is killed, everybody expects a traditional warm-fuzzy ending for the whole family where the kids are both safe and sound and everything goes back to normal. But it doesn't happen that way. One of the kids does survive, but the little girl we've been following since the start of the movie doesn't. I love it.

So the creature is defeated, Gang-du gets to continue being a father, and the boy gets a home and a family at last. It ends up that it is a happy ending for everybody, except for the little girl, who died.

I was pretty surprised when I was walking back from my classes yesterday around 6ish and came to the area in front of my dorm where I always hang out, and several of the regular peeps there were gathered around a portable DVD player at the table watching The Host. I didn't get there until the final showdown scene, but it was cool to see a bunch of average college folk that I know gathered around what is normally the smokers table watching this little gem of a flick (albeit dubbed, which didn't seem half-bad from what I heard of it by the way).

I still haven't bought it yet.

Finally saw it, in fact I rented the DVD from the library. It was really great, and it was a very different kind of movie from what I was expecting, and I knew that it was supposed to be pretty different in the first place!


I hope they don't change the design of the creature for the American remake. I also don't see how they'll have the cultural commentary that made the original what it is. They only way I think they can pull it off is to have the creature attack what is a poor and mostly black section of a city and have some Katrina overtones... but knowing Hollywood it will be sanitized into just another creature flick.
