The Uncertain Guest (El Habitante incierto) (The Uninvited Guest) (2004)
Movie InfoA lonely architect who was recently abandoned by his live-in girlfriend finds that he's not as alone in his sprawling estate as he had previously thought in director Guillem Morales' minimalist thriller. Félix's (Andoni Gracia) girlfriend, Vera (Mónica López), may be gone, but her possessions, scattered about the house as if she were to walk back through the door at any moment, offer a constant reminder of the failed relationship that he was powerless to salvage. When a desperate stranger who introduces himself as Martin (Agustín Villaronga) shows up on Félix's doorstep begging to make an urgent telephone call, the startled homeowner reluctantly allows the man inside only to realize that his strange guest has seemingly vanished into thin air just moments later. Now convinced that the mysterious Martin is hiding somewhere in his home undetected, Félix's growing paranoia leads him down a dark path in which his home seems to take on its own increasingly menacing personality. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi … More

Audience Reviews for The Uncertain Guest (El Habitante incierto) (The Uninvited Guest)
This Spanish thriller directed by Guillem Morales and starring Monica Lopez , Francesc Garrido , Agusti Villaronga , Andoni Gracia , Minnie Marx , Paul Derqui and Violet Llueca is one of the most original thrillers I enjoyed! In 2005, for this film, Guillem Morales was nominated for the Goya film award for best new director.
The story of Felix - an architect, who feels that his emotional stability crumbles when his girlfriend Vera refuses to continue living with him, was really well developed. The suspense was simply amazing. One night, he is visited by a stranger who asks if he can make a phone call... and he disappears, at least Felix thinks so... Since then, a series of increasingly strange events lead him to the conclusion that the intruder has been living in his own home and his life is being threatened by him.
Everything in this movie is almost perfect... and smooth running! Give it a go!
A good original spanish thriller that should appeal to movie-goers who enjoy these type of films where you're left thinking after the movie ends (a puzzle).More
