Halloween is coming up, full of ghosts, ghouls, and creepy creatures galore, but do you know what the most frightening concept is? Returning to Zoom for more grueling months of video calls. Yikes! If you really want to be frightened, we recommend checking out last year’s greatest pandemic thriller Host. It’ll give you nightmares, surely, of 2020 and beyond.
Host follows a Zoom call straight from hell. Six friends hire a medium to conduct a séance in their weekly Zoom call during the lockdown, spicing things up around the good ole’ computer screen. If you loved films like Unfriended or Searching, this is the film for you: it takes place, for the most part, on computer screens. And it’s also a found footage horror movie like Blair Witch Project or Paranormal Activity.
