31 Days of Halloween - Day 25 - Movie 2
A huge mutant amphibious creature emerges from the Han River, rampaging and killing picnickers on its bank and snatching away young Hyun-seo before diving back into the river. All witnesses are quarantined, told they may have contracted a disease from the creature. A weak cell phone call from Hyun-seo lets her family know that she's still alive. Now they must escape quarantine and try and track her down somewhere in the sewers while evading various law officials and the creature itself.
The Host (2006) is part political satire, part comedy, part tragedy and all monster movie. It's one of the best movies of any genre from recent years and one of the best monster movies of all time.
