About The Host
In the future, alien parasites called Souls have taken over much of Earth: they inhabit the bodies of humans after erasing their minds. Mel (Saoirse Ronan), one of the last remaining humans, is determined not to be caught by the Souls and lives in fear of discovery. Despite the terrible conditions of her existence, she meets fellow scavenger Jared (Max Irons) on a raid and they fall in love. Eventually Mel is caught by the Souls and they put Wanderer, an alien who has yet to find a suitable human host, into her body. However, Mel's consciousness remains and Wanderer finds herself emotionally affected by her memories. She seeks out Mel's friends including Jared and Ian (Jake Abel), another human who is intrigued by Wanderer's situation.
