The film directed by Rob Savage was shot completely during the Lockdown in 2020 and was released in the US to unanimous stellar reviews with being fully 100% Fresh on the prominent recommendation and film review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. The English language film will release in India across 4 languages including a subsequent release later in May in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
PictureWorks is all set to release HOST, an effective shocker for our quarantine times on the leading OTT platform, Amazon Prime Video in India. Lean, suspenseful, and scary, HOST uses its timely premise to deliver a nastily effective treat for horror enthusiasts. You might not sleep for weeks, said one review from Empire.
After its success in the US, the multi-award-winning writer/director Rob Savage’s movie caught the attention of Blumhouse, the production company behind the likes of Paranormal Activity, Happy Death Day, and The Purge. Last year, he went on to sign a three-picture deal with them for an undisclosed amount.
Commenting on the film’s release in India, Avinaash Jumani, CEO of PictureWorks said, HOST, is a well-crafted, anxiety-inducing thrill-ride from start to finish with an electrifying dose of horror. We at PictureWorks are very happy to bring forth this new release direct to homes through the incredible OTT platform, Amazon Prime Video.
