The best monster movie of the decade is set to get the sequel treatment next year… What’s that you say, how can Cloverfield already have garnered a sequel when it hasn’t even been released yet? (Seriously, when has this much advance hype ever ended well… Snakes on a Plane anyone?) No, the best monster movie of the past ten years is South Korea’s The Host and as all blockbusters must, it’s getting a sequel.

Director Bong Joon-ho, he of the damn good Memories of Murder as well, will have no part in it though, so expect it to suck. Plus, like the headline says, it’s apparently going to be a prequel filled with bigger, badder, and more-er monsters so expect it to look cool but suck. And since it’s a prequel, none of the original characters can return, most notably the sweet, crazy-ass, dysfunctional family that gave the first movie its heart so expect it to suck. And in keeping with the political spirit of the first film (American military bad!) the prequel will tackle local Korean political corruption so expect it to, err, not mean anything to you. That said, expect it to still be better than the upcoming American remake of the original.
