Superhost was one of those movies I knew nothing about going in, but wound up being a decent flick that utilized its quick runtime. Plus, it reminded me how much I despise vloggers. Just a bunch of societal parasites who somehow make insane amounts of money talking about the most inane bullshit to an audience that is somehow dumber than they are. But I digress. That mindset completely changes how you watch a film like Superhost. You find yourself rooting more for the killer than the dipshit vlogger couple. It actually makes the movie even more entertaining.
Claire (Canning) and Teddy (Chau) are the hosts of everyone's favorite travel vlog channel "Superhost." Well, not everyone's favorite, because their subscriber count is dwindling. They need fresh content, and when they meet Rebecca (Gillam), the weird as fuck owner of their latest house rental, they think they've hit a goldmine. But the more they learn about Rebecca, the stranger she seems to be, until they realize who she really is and what she's done. Then, all hell breaks loose and it's awfully satisfying to watch these morons get theirs.
There's very little written about this film. It's a 2021 Shudder original that has gotten fairly decent reviews over the past year. That's pretty much it. I featured it on the Filmgazm Podcast, and I hope I can encourage more people to watch it. There's so much unique content on Shudder that's worth checking out, including this oddball slasher flick.
