From the director of You’re Next and featuring what’s being described as a standout, badass performance from Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens, comes The Guest: a tense, action-packed and unpredictable film like everything and nothing you’ve ever seen before. Empire Magazine called it “a demented action-horror hybrid of sci-fi conspiracy thriller and gore-fest”, and Vanity Fair said, “The Guest is big, it’s bold, it’s badass, full of flavor Hollywood wishes it could pour over its vanilla blockbusters.”
The Guest centers on a soldier (Dan Stevens), who introduces himself to the Peterson family, claiming to be a friend of their son who died in action. After the young man is welcomed into their home, a series of accidental deaths seem to be connected to his presence.
The Guest, directed by Adam Wingard and written by Simon Barrett, visits theaters in September 2014, starring Starring Dan Stevens, Maika Monroe, Leland Orser, Lance Reddick, Sheila Kelley and Brendan Meyer.
