This movie looks fucking fantastical and why shouldn’t it? It’s done by the same two guys that brought us You’re Next, Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett. You’re Next was one of my favorite horror flicks of 2013, so I definitely have high expectations. I’m not a Downton Abbey fan (kind of boring and slow for my tastes), but this shows Dan Stevens looking like quite the bad ass. They are calling it a stand out performance for him. I’ll call it a stand up performance because that’s what my dong did while watching this trailer…. The Guest will be hitting theatres Sept. 17, 2014.
Synopsis: A soldier (Dan Stevens) 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.
