I loved this movie!!! I went into this not really knowing much about it and that lack of information turned the entire experience into such an unpredictable one. I've never heard of Dan Stevens but man this guy kicks some serious ass in this film. I wouldn't mind seeing him in another action movie roll in the future. I'm going to have to watch it again to try and figure out some things about it that I missed the first time around. This also has one of the best soundtracks since I saw "Drive" awhile back. A very enjoyable movie regardless of whether you fully understand the ending or not. Lots of fun, a great leading performance by Dan Stevens and a killer soundtrack! Definitely pick this one up.
I joined RT just to warn people that this movie is horrible. Totally implausible, inexplicable plot twists, wooden characters (dad, friends), cliched and silly ending in a halloween house with a soundtrack. How did this get 90% from critics? I saw it for free and I want my money back.
Someone with a like super cool sense of irony went to universal studios and was allowed to have a look through the scripts Orion passed on in 1985 and convinced them to stump up the 50 dollars necessary to make the film thinking 'this'll be a great in joke for everyone' except the joke's on us. Best thing about it is the universal ident and the shot of the landscape at the start. It all goes downhill from there.
I don't usually like thrillers, but I liked this film. It's slick and mysterious. Dan Stevens gives us hints that all may not be well without actually saying so. I found myself constantly reevaluating the evidence given.
Okay, if you can ignore the absolute silliness of a family mourning the loss of their soldier son *casually inviting* a TOTAL STRANGER to stay with them, then this film is a TON of fun and well worth a look.
It sports a great synth-y, '80s styled score, has some great lines and a ton of fun violence as we start to learn more about our mystery man lead, who is naturally not exactly who he claims to be - what's not to love?
The Guest, from the creators of You're Next. The Guest is one of the biggest surprises of this year. This movie is very stylish as boasting enough intelligence of it's darkly violent thrills. It hearkens back to the 80's action and horror, like as 'The Terminator'. A fantastic performance from Dan Stevens as the mysterious guest, and a 80's inspired soundtrack from the film. This movie is funny, scary, and thrilling, all blended into one that feels like a comical adventure than a straight up typical horror film. The Guest offers another addition to genre fans from the director Adam Wingard.
