My Favorite Horror Movie Moments of All Time: Number 38 — The Host

The Host

To celebrate the journey toward Halloween 2014 I’m going to do something I’ve wanted to attempt since I first started writing here on Halloween Love … put together a definitive list of my personal favorite horror movie moments and scenes.

I hope you will agree with some, maybe raise an eyebrow at others and fingers crossed a few will be pleasant surprises.

The Host

38 : The Host 2006 : Monster Attack Scene.

The Host is without question my favorite monster movie from the last 10-15 years. Defying a limited budget the effects are impressive and smooth throughout, the story is engaging, the characters are well written which makes them easy to care about, and the creature is visually original and satisfyingly nasty.

There are so many moments I could have chosen from this beautifully constructed film but in the end it’s the emergence of the creature from the Han River that got the nod. Swiftly and brutally attacking any members of the public who are unfortunate enough to get in its way, this scene sets up the story for the rest of the movie and leaves viewers in no doubt that despite the sometimes light-hearted tone the script has been infused with, this is going to be a danger filled journey that WILL feature death and tragedy.
