Director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett have been steadily rocking our world with their collaborative horrorshows A Horrible Way To Die and You’re Next — but they’re taking this thing to a whole other level with The Guest, which merges the mounting dread of Halloween and the firepower of The Terminator to produce a whipcrack genre paella feast. Something is most definitely up when steely-eyed army vet David (Dan Stevens, Downton Abbey) shows up unannounced on the doorstep of a family in mourning over the loss of their son in Afghanistan — and becomes in rapid succession a sterling houseguest, their confidante and their fixer, with the taste of blood on his mind. “The real triumph here is what we’ve come to expect from Wingard and Barrett: undeniable enjoyment…There’s no shame in laughing when a real jerk gets his head smashed in and a high school haunted house is the perfect location for a bloody finale — even if the production design of said haunted house is cool enough to put Universal Studios to shame. Who cares? Just go with it.” ( Schedules permitting, Adam Wingard & Simon Barrett in person!
Dir. Adam Wingard, 2014, DCP, 99 min.
