Is there anything scarier than Heir Adolf Frump, aka The Worm, aka Trumpty Dumpty?
But the Dark Sky Films DVD Hostscomes pretty close.
On Christmas Eve, an innocent couple become hosts to a malicious entity. Throughout the night they proceed to terrorize a family of five in unimaginably violent and disturbing ways. But these demonic possessions won’t end with this unfortunate family; they mark just the beginning of a horrific worldwide epidemic.
Beneath its nerve-jangling suspense, the film offers a dark and bloody insight into how lying to your loved ones can not only alienate them, it can completely destroy your bonds with them forever.
The film, written by Adam Leader and directed by Adam Leader and Richard Oakes, follows in the footsteps of classic successes such as The Exorcist, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and Inglorious Basterds. Hosts was written to keep viewers on the edge of their seats and leave a lasting impression.

Providing a unique glimpse into Nureyev’s personality, preparation and technique, the documentary includes excerpts from his performances in the classical ballets La Sylphide with Carla Fracci, and The Sleeping Beauty with Lynn Seymour; in addition to sequences from the modern ballet Field Figures with Deanne Bergsma, and Frederick Ashton’s Marguerite and Armand with his long-time partner Margot Fonteyn.
Film Movement has taken a most welcome leap by releasing this Golden Globe Nominee for Best Documentary Film Features on Blu-ray for the first time in North America.
