Despite the restrictions,social distancing, and isolation over the past year due to the Covid pandemic, creators have still been out there creating. With the new spine-tingler HOST, director Rob Savage shot remotely during quarantine with actors filming their own stunts and scares from their own homes.
HOST tells the story of “six friends who hire a medium to conduct a séance during lockdown for their weekly Zoom call. Jemma decides to pull a prank and makes up a story about a boy she knew in high school who hanged himself. By doing this, Jemma inadvertently invites a demonic presence to cross over. Soon the friends begin noticing strange occurrences in their homes as the evil spirit begins to make itself known, and they all realize this night may be their last.”
Co-written by Savage, Gemma Hurley, and Jed Shepherd, the film stars Haley Bishop, Radina Drandova, Jemma Moore, Caroline Ward, Emma Louise Webb, and Edward Linard.
Here’s the trailer!
