Director Rob Savage on Host (NON-SPOILER)

One week after its release on the streaming service Shudder, it’s already been called the horror film of the year and even, by Dread Central, the scariest film of the decade.  It’s Host, a British horror film written and produced entirely during lockdown and over Zoom.  We’ve been following its director, Rob Savage, since the start of our podcast, and now the man himself joins us for a spoiler-free discussion about what inspired the film and how it was made. 

Kirsty, Stella and Dan have all seen the film and, as you’ll hear, it’s at the top of their recommendations for this week as they discuss – again without spoilers – what they love about it.  In a few weeks we’ll be returning to Host, with Rob Savage in tow, for a full spoiler-centric review full of behind-the-scenes revelations.  But for now, if you haven’t done so already, head over to Shudder and take advantage of this terrifying treat.
