The film Host (directed by Rob Savage) was shot entirely during lockdown in 2020 and released in the US. Film review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes was unanimously reviewed, with a 100% fresh recommendation. The English-language film will be released in 4 languages in India, which will be released later in May in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
PictureWorks, one of the premier OTT platforms in India, is all set to release the shocker film 'Host', effective for our quarantine time on Amazon Prime Video. Rare, suspense, and creepy, the host uses his time base as an effective delight for fans of horror movies. You might not sleep for weeks, a review by Empire said.
Following its success in the US, multi-award winning writer / director Rob Savage's film caught the attention of the production company behind the likes of Blumhouse, Paranormal Activity, Happy Death Day and The Purge. Last year, he signed a three-film deal with him for an undisclosed sum.
Commenting on the release of the film in India, PictureWorks CEO Avinash Jumani said, 'HOST is full of thrilling horror from beginning to end which is very well crafted. At PictureWorks, we are very happy to bring this new release directly to homes via the incredible OTT platform, Amazon Prime Video.
