georgie’s review published on Letterboxd:
as a horror movie, HOST was fun enough: it didn't necessarily blow my mind, and i would also like to say this is not better than the UNFRIENDED movies!! please!! UNFRIENDED: DARK WEB in particular changed the game. i know you can't tell if i'm joking or not and that's intentional.
that being said, this is a great product of the new phenomenon that is "pandemic media." the fact that this film clearly takes place during the pandemic only heightens the scares because the characters and the situation they're in seem even more real to us.
lastly, zoom is scary enough when we use it for school or work, so to make that the setting of this film worked so so well. i'm horrified, thanks!
