There’s a fun, exciting, kinetic action movie opening next month called The Guest. Written by Simon Barrett and directed by Adam Wingard (the guys behind You’re Next), The Guest stars Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) as a recently discharged soldier who visits the family of one of his fallen comrades. It’s a nice gesture and things start off well enough. Slowly, however, it becomes very obvious this guy is not who he seems. A trail of violence follows in his path and eventually the family will come to realize the truth about their son and their guest.
The Guest opens September 17. While a teaser trailer was out earlier this summer, now the full one is out. Watch The Guest trailer below. Read More »

The films by director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett always have one thing in common. They are obviously influenced by an intense passion for movies, but are not overtly obvious about referencing those movies. In that sense, The Guest might feel like something you’ve seen before. It’s got the basic feel of a stalker film from the late ’80s or early ’90s, but filtered through the action of Quentin Tarantino, the music of John Carpenter, the ideas of James Cameron and almost too many others to mention. There’s action, sci-fi, horror, comedy… you name it, this movie has it. The result is a fresh, fun film that crescendos from title to credits with suspense, laughs and violence. Read More »
