A chance opportunity arises for Robert Atkinson, a London banker who risks his banks money to leave the mundane behind and start a new life.

Fueled by power players, drugs, seduction and violence Robert awaits his turn in a deadly game of choice and consequence.
Directed by Andy Newbery
Produced by Zachary Weckstein
Cinematography by Oona Menges
Genre: Thriller, Crime, Mystery – a kind of modern-day Hitchcock.
THE HOST is filmed in London and Amsterdam and is a suspense-driven feature film, with a core element based on when we come to crossroads in life. The film presents the consequences should we choose the wrong road, sacrifices which must be made, justifications made, but it remains the wrong path. You will feel the intensity of the spiral effect after a wrong choice, leading to a road one can no longer turn back. This film is entertaining and will certainly keep you on the edge of your seat.
