The host is a story of a young girl whose body is invaded by an alien and she doesn't want it inside of her.
It is quite an unusual situation in science fiction movies that aliens have something "pure" in them. Thus, they're always something to be feared. It becomes more confusing that the pure, virtues world they aim to create is attained through the unwanted intrusion of an unwilling host which makes this film "unbelievable".
Culturally, the iconography of aliens is a recurring sting of America which always finds itself defensive against aliens with whom they are always trying to understand.
However, Stephanie Meyer would always be famous for injecting a love story in the world of aliens and science fiction, as depicted in the three way battle for love.
However, the film is to be commended for depicting the vulnerable condition of a soul and its inherent goodness, qualities which we human beings could have if we treat life as sacred.
