The Host is a Korean monster movie (Gwoemul is the Korean title). While the story involves a man who must save his daughter from the creature, and touches on some other issues, when it comes down to it... it's a monster movie.
The initial 20 minutes or so of the film is awesome. I had to re-watch it a number of times simply because it contains some great effects work and lends itself to repeat viewing. The rest of the film is really good, too, although I don't think it reaches the initial excitement from the opening.
Overall, it's more of an action movie than horror, which is why I called this a monster movie rather than a horror flick. There aren't any real scares in it, but it's definitely a fun movie you should check out if you can find it.
