Behold the trailer for The Host, a science fiction flick based on the novel of the same name by Stephenie Meyer – author of the Twilight series. I’ll try not to hold that against this movie! Borrowing from the classic Invasion of the Body Snatchers, this story takes place long after the invasion has taken place and Earth is at peace, even though said peace came at a terrible price. Just about all human beings are now vessels for extra-terrestrial life forms.
But of course, there is a small resistance, human beings who remain free and unoccupied by alien minds and wish to stay that way. After after a young woman is seized and “possessed”, her new alien overlords try to access her memories in the hopes of findings others like her. However, soon her old mind reasserts itself and she escapes their custody, hoping to find her way back to the one she loves.
And of course, a chase follows as the alien bad guys try to reclaim her and force her to forget her love and forgo her human half. Kind of a love conquers all story with an alien possession angle! Enjoy the trailer. Several more have been released since this first one, but I personally found this one the most entertaining!

awesome! I had no idea this was happening until this post. I have always wondered why the author did not write a sequel to this. She certainly left it open enough to write a whole series. Hopefully she will. In the meantime, I’m totally looking forward to this movie.
Yeah, I think I’ll skip this one. It’s just Stephanie Meyers…I couldn’t see myself enjoying anything by her, especially after the hell she played with vampire stories.
