Where to Watch: Amazon Prime

The desktop movie/webs series (an entire film or at least most of it shown on a computer screen or mobile phone or both) is something that is gaining traction over the past couple of years, and now has crept into populist culture after more such content appeared online during the lockdown. Even here in India we’ve got our share of such desktop content with the Malayalam movie, C U Soon, and the surprisingly great show, The Gone Game. However, the benchmark for such stuff still remains 2014’s horror film, Unfriended (let’s not even get into the sequel), and the 2018 thriller, Searching. Well, y’all will be glad to hear that the British horror movie, Host, recently released on Amazon Prime (it initially exclusively premiered on Shudder, available only in the US, Europe and a few other select countries), not only measure to their yardstick, but will soon also be seen as a benchmark itself for others to follow.

So, are you excited about what to watch this weekend or what to watch this week and wondering whether Host is worth your time? Scroll down for my full Host review…
