HOST, the critically acclaimed new British horror sensation, will be released in UK and Irish cinemas – and on Digital platforms – on 4th December 2020, courtesy of Vertigo Releasing.
The Shudder Original found-footage horror – filmed remotely during the COVID-19 lockdown – is directed by Rob Savage and based on a script written by Savage, Gemma Hurley and Jed Shepherd.
Six friends get together during lockdown for their weekly zoom call. It’s Haley’s turn to organise an activity and instead of a quiz, she’s arranged for a medium to conduct a séance. Bored and feeling mischievous, Jemma decides to have some fun and invents a story about a boy in her school who hanged himself. However, her prank gives license for a demonic presence to cross over, taking on the guise of the boy in Jemma’s made-up story. The friends begin noticing strange occurrences in their homes as the evil presence begins to make itself known, and they soon realise that they might not survive the night.
