The Hostile ending needs an obvious explanation, and we are here for the same. The film shows us the genres such as thrill and romance throughout the plot. It all begins with an apocalypse, but a strange one at that. Among a few people who have survived, there is a girl who is alive but remembers her lover. All these people who have come out alive are now living in a base together.
The city is destroyed and evicted by the mutant creatures called the reapers. While Juliette is out to get supplies for the base, she starts dreaming about Jack, her lover. The two met in an art gallery he attended just to eat the free food. As for Jack, he is a businessman and an artist. The two run into each other.

When there is a miscarriage, and the baby dies, Juliette starts blaming Jack for this and falls into a cycle of drugs once again. Even when he tries to reach her in order to make up for everything and talk it out, Juliette is a pub trying to get wasted and ignored his calls.
Jack later gets in a grave incident in the city because of a chemical explosion. She meets with him in the hospital before he literally vanishes.
Coming back to the present, Juliette is terrified of the creatures because it is evening now, and the creatures start hunting at night, and she has forgotten the way back to the base. Thus, Juliette decides to stay where she is right now.
