AS SEEN IN: The Host (book 2008)
BY: Twilight scribe Stephenie Meyer
MOVIE STATUS: In theaters March 29, 2013, starring Saoirse Ronan.
SUPERNATURAL SPECIFICATIONS: In Meyer’s non-Twilight world, it’s not vampires you need to watch out for. It’s aliens. Except these ETs aren’t so much body-snatchers as they are brain-snatchers: the obstacle in The Host is a product of the Souls, parasites from another world who take over humans’ minds—or at least try to, when the human is a strong one like protagonist Melanie.
