In Host, Missouri, the newcomer Dr. of Veterinary Science Eli Rudkus is called by the farmer Jacob Long to exam one of his cows. The veterinarian finds a strange parasite in the animal and sends it to a friend in the Department of Agriculture for research. Later, he finds the same parasite in a creek and he summons the population for a meeting, warning that the cause might be the animal food. However, Fletcher Odermatt, the wealthy owner of the local Host Tender Meals that has been providing free animal food for the farmers, brings his lawyer Hayley Anderson and discredits Eli. When a huge mutant parasite attacks Eli and Jacob, they discover that the meals are actually an experimental genetic cocktail that is growing parasites inside the kettles and people. Written by

In the scene where the guy and the girl are making out, the girl removes her bra. When the parasite starts to hurt the guy, he tells her to drive to a hospital. When she climbs to the front seat, she's wearing the bra again. As she starts the car, her bra is again missing, but as she runs away from the car, the bra is back on. See more »
Didn't really know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. Top-notch acting. Great story. Cool Special FX. A little gore and screaming. Good popcorn flick for Horror and Sci-fi fans.
The following is from Sci-Fi Channel Host, Mo., is a quiet ranching community where everyone knows everyone else, and almost everybody earns their living from a local meat-products packager, Host Tender Meats.
New to town is veterinarian Eli Rudkus (Vincent Ventresca of Sci-Fi's 'Invisible Man'), who makes Host his home after his predecessor retires, leaving a professional vacancy that Eli is happy to fill. However, when Eli is called to the ranch of Jacob Long (William Forsythe of 'Once Upon a Time In America' and Rob Zombie's upcoming 'The Devil's Rejects'), a local cattleman, the young veterinarian's seemingly routine house call exposes a dangerous secret about Host Tender Meats that could annihilate this small town.
Eli's efforts to warn the town are thwarted by Fletcher Odermatt (David Selby known to most as Quentin from "Dark Shadows), the owner of Host Tender Meats. Odermatt is willing to go to any lengths to keep his company's dark secret buried. To that end, he enlists cutthroat attorney Hayley Anderson (Rachel Ward) to smear Eli's reputation.
Before long, though, Eli and Jocob convince Hayley that what started as a small "parasite problem" is now a disaster on the verge of becoming too large to contain. As catastrophe looms, the trio races against time, nature and science to save their town and perhaps the world.
Do I recommend it? Yup, and when it's available on DVD this April, I'm getting it.
