About Host Movie
The remarkable point in this film is that all the actors filmed themselves separately at home and the film is made entirely on the Zoom platform, which is a video calling software, and in the end, the film was edited remotely.
If we want to be more precise, we see that even the real names of the actors are used in the film.
The film is so straightforward that the viewer, because of shared experiences, identifies with the actors and makes the film more believable, and the film can also be a metaphor for the very real fears of life in the Corona era.
We may be deceiving ourselves through video chat software that we can still be together, but the “host” is gradually bursting our illusion.
In the movie, we do not see any scary and unexpected scenes like the rest of the movies. But the process of the story and the play of the actors convey a feeling.
Although the film has a short duration, the tensions and fears do not diminish during the film and the viewer does not feel tired. And this is one hour of what people need at home away from the cinema
The film wastes no time in introducing you to the characters: a group of friends decides to pass the time by summoning the dead instead.
Haley and her friends join Zoom as usual for a video call, but this time Haley has invited a seventh guest named Ceylan, a middle-aged employee, to lead the group during a virtual summons. But it does not take long for them to notice strange things happening…
