This Wednesday, September 17, one of the coolest films of the year is coming to select theaters. That movie is The Guest, the latest film from the team behind You’re Next, and it is a “fun ’80s throwback with sci-fi and stalker sprinkles on top.” That’s what I said at Sundance, where the film premiered. Now, nine months later, you can finally see what all the fuss is about.
Directed by Adam Wingard, The Guest stars Downton Abbey‘s Dan Stevens as a soldier returning home for war. He visits the family of a fallen comrade hoping to help them deal with their grief, but he has some more sinister, ulterior motives. Along the way, the whole film feels like a blend of John Carpenter, James Cameron, Quentin Tarantino and more. You can read my full review here and, below, we’ve got the exclusive debut of two very cool alternative posters for the film.
Here are our exclusive posters for The Guest. Click on each to see it in high res.
