About the Movie

From the creators of You’re Next comes The Guest, a pulse-pounding thriller starring Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) and Maika Monroe (Labor Day). Recently discharged from the Army, David Collins (Stevens) unexpectedly shows up on the Petersons’ doorstep, claiming to be their late son’s best friend. Welcomed into their home, the well-mannered stranger becomes part of the family until a shocking wave of violence raises daughter Anna’s (Monroe) suspicions that the mysterious ex-soldier is not quite what he seems. Smart and suspenseful, The Guest is an action-packed blast that critics are calling “impossibly cool.” (Samuel Zimmerman, Fangoria).

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Dan Stevens is mesmerizing as the avenger, helping director Adam Wingard turn The Guest into a blast of wicked mirth and malice. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Sep 19, 2014

Fresh: The Guest ravels smartly; and, after too many herky-jerky entries in the faux-found-footage subgenre, it's nice to see a scare film with a pearly visual style, which gives the enterprise the patina of both elegance and plausibility. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Oct 16, 2014

Fresh: One of the many pleasures of director Adam Wingard's tough, fun thriller "The Guest" is seeing Matthew Crawley -- er, British actor Dan Stevens -- serve up a mesmerizing star turn of psycho charm. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Jan 5, 2015

Fresh: The director Adam Wingard joins the ranks of the current masters of unease with this suspenseful horror tale. – Bruce Diones, New Yorker, Oct 6, 2014

Amateur film

Scenes are predictable and intrigue is thinly put together….

Not Drive

This was a failed attempt to make a movie like Drive. Often way over the top to the point of satire.

Not good enough to be called “Campy"

I thought this was an action/thriller. Instead it was a half-baked attempt at campy horror tropes. I was mislead by the snippets of good reviews and rented this film. Once I realized I was mislead by the Rotten Tomato reviews that iTunes shows - here is my adjusted review:

The first hour was not “Campy”; it was just bad. The last 30 minutes was campy and OK. Campy horror/thriller is not my thing. But this was not even a thriller. I am the jumpiest, easiest to scare person ever; and I did not jump even once.
