The Host

2

The adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's non-Twilight novel

Alien parasites take over the world in an inert adap of the Stephenie Meyer novel that tries to give Invasion Of The Body Snatchersa tween-friendly Twilight makeover, largely by constructing a bonkers love quadrangle between Saoirse Ronan, the spore inside her and two interchangeable male hotties (Max Irons, Jake Abel). 

The result is as silly as that sounds, though there are compensations in the form of Diane Kruger’s white-suited baddie and the sleek environs her race inhabits. 

Director Andrew Niccol scored with Gattacaonly to stumble with In TimeThe Host does little to reverse the new Zealander’s slump.
