Plot: A soldier 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. Runtime: 100 mins Release Date: 05 Sep 2014
This begins at a fast pace with Dan Stevens, running along an empty road on his way to the house of the parents of a co-fighter in Afganistan, and barely lets up for the whole of its ideal and economical 99minutes. He befriends the family members and just when we think this may get a little tedious, the manipulation begins and our ride takes off. This is confident and very knowing film making. Just a look, when just a look is all that is required and a gut wrenching blow to a young punk when that is required. Indeed for the first section of this thrilling and visceral movie, it is fists that <more>
are the order of the day, the middle section sees guns come to the fore and how! and by the time w reach the finale we are fully into 80s retro slasher movie territory complete with halloween and haunted house motifs. The soundtrack is quite astonishing and contributes greatly, Dan Stevens is remarkable in the lead role demanding he be convincing in both empathy and ruthless brutality, and there is always a place for humour. This film was going to get top score but to finish allowing the audience a smile on their face is a bonus.
My Favourite 2014 Movie So Far! (by curtis_davies55)
First off before i went to watch this movie i got very familiar with Director Adam Wingard through both with 'V/H/S' shorts and a short in 'The Abc's Of Death and then 'You're Next' which i loved so I went into the guest with high expectations and believe me it didn't let me down. The style and direction along with Dan Stevens powerhouse performance made this film one of my favourites. As a massive fan of 80's horror movies i was happy with what Adam Wingard did with it. The way he bends different genres together is incredible, you have action, horror, <more>
thriller and even some comedy. Dan Stevens Character David is so iconic that he's up there with Patrick Bateman for me, His character is brilliant and very quotable. Another brilliant aspect of the movie is the build up, its not one bit boring and really tense, just watching David is entertaining. For me i give this movie 10 stars easily!
This movie kicks ass, and that's the best way to describe it in few words. Definitely one of the best movies i seen in last few years.Great soundtrack, i specially liked song Anthonio by Annie which made already good scene from the movie into great scene. Score is also great, very John Carpenter-like and it sure does sounds like some scores from his 1980's movies. Acting by everyone is good and there is no bad actor in the movie. Dan Stevens as David is just amazing and very creepy in his role as mysterious guest. Direction is good and it has certain style, just like cinematography. <more>
While it's not action packed movie, it has some really good action bits which are well filmed and without any shaky-cam BS. There are also some nice tense moments, not just in action scenes but throughout the movie, which specially works in slasher-horror-like finale. As for violence in the movie, there are no scenes with whole bunch of gore but this is still violent and R rated thriller with actual blood squibs and other gory effects, and not some CG blood.I can definitely see lot of nods to 1980's movies, just look at Halloween masks in final scene, they are the same ones used in Halloween 3, then there is also a gun used by characters in final scene, it's the same gun that Donald Pleasence has in Halloween 4. And just like some other people have said, entire story is kinda like combination of First Blood soldier returns from war and he has changed mentally , Terminator unstoppable cyborg-like killer and Halloween psycho killer on the loose and his doctor, in this case Major Carver, chases after him and tries to stop him . I sure would love to see this turned into new Halloween series, with David being like Michael Myers and Major Carver as Dr. Loomis. But on its own, movie is still great and i wouldn't mind if they don't do any sequels. Maybe some people have problems with ending but i think it was quite a surprise and another nice homage to old slasher movies. If you seen the movie and you are a fan of slashers, then you know what i mean.And one of the best things about the movie, it's 90-some minutes long, it doesn't have bunch of unnecessary subplots and all the other BS, and it has some nice dark humour, my favorite "funny" bit is in certain scene where song "Because I Love You" plays.In the end, i love this movie 100%, it's my favorite of 2014, i would love to see more of these type of movies in the future. Despite its limited release and success, critics and audience gave the movie lot of praise and i sure as hell agree with them.
One of the most stylish and fun thrillers of the decade. (by lnvicta)
It's a bold statement but I stand by it. This movie had everything I wanted and a hell of a lot more. The plot in a nutshell is that a guy named David Dan Stevens goes to the house of a soldier who was KIA and claims to have known him personally, so the family invites him to stay. Then things start happening, secrets come out, and sh*t goes down. Simple premise, and if it sounds familiar it's probably because it's been done many times, but never quite with as much finesse as The Guest. The writer and director are the same team that brought us You're Next and a few segments <more>
from V/H/S and V/H/S/2. Personally I loved You're Next - it was a straight up horror comedy with little to no surprises. Here, the duo hone their strengths into their magnum opus so to speak. The Guest is an action thriller, but there are a lot more elements at work. It's dramatic, it's funny, it's intense, and it gets pretty frightening at times. The scope seems very wide but it all flows together without a hitch, and each emotional reaction keeps your eyes glued to the screen waiting for what happens next. The Guest is held together by its lead, Dan Stevens. I haven't seen him in anything before this but he was flawless in this role as an enigmatic, seemingly charming family friend. David is immensely likable, even when questionable things start happening you still want to root for the guy. He just has a badass aura around him. Dan Stevens plays him with such conviction that you can't see through him and you have no idea what is going on in his head, but you know that there's more to him than meets the eye.When I say sh*t goes down in this movie, I mean it. Sh*t. Goes. Down. I won't spoil anything but The Guest has one of the most stylish, suspenseful, colorful, and downright invigorating third acts in a movie I've seen in a while. It's f*cking magnificent. Some people are split on this opinion but honestly, I thought it was an absolute blast. It takes place in a Halloween fun house; as soon as it began I turned into a giddy schoolgirl. Yeah, it's just that much fun. The first two acts are impeccable as well, building up the tension and suspense to a level of tangibility that you can cut with a knife. The characters surrounding David are all great as well. They're your typical family, and although it may seem like they're just caricatures, they are completely convincing in their roles largely due to the realistic dialogue. Everything progresses believably and exactly how you'd want it to, and the predictability is a strength in this case because it gives the filmmakers a chance to make the simple premise as shiny and creative as possible. I was not bored for a minute of this movie. The soundtrack is phenomenal too - it has an '80s thriller vibe and a lot of dark electronic grooves similar to those in You're Next but even better.The Guest is an action-thriller buff's wet dream, and it even throws in some horror for good measure. It really is one of the most underrated movies of 2014 and an experience that no thriller fan should miss out on.
Brilliant movie.. worth a watch! (by sabinabegum09)
I went in to the cinema with no expectations with this movie. I watched the trailer and assumed it will be some average movie but I was totally mistaken. The film is very fast paced with surprisingly some humor throughout. There was a lot of gruesome fight scenes I personally jump watching violent scenes but I get the reasons why they were there. Dan Stevens was a complete shocker with his performance. If you remember him from Downtown Abbey, his performance here is amazing! He portrays a brilliant character and he does an amazing American accent. All the actors were perfectly cast for this <more>
movie. I loved Maika Monroe, she reminded me a lot of Brittany Murphy and Gwen Stefani. The ending was totally not expected and I loved every bit. The music played reminded me a bit of Drive soundtrack but worked brilliant with this movie. I truly recommend the movie!!
Wingard and Barrett are in fine form (by jtindahouse)
There's nothing better than when a writer and director team up that have chemistry in abundance. That is clearly the case between director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett at the moment. 2011's 'You're Next', 2012's 'V/H/S' and its 2013 sequel 'V/H/S 2' only segments in the latter two have all been nothing short of brilliant and now 'The Guest' is of the same quality although a rather different sort of film . I'm delighted to see they have been busy boys and actually have some other work released in the last few years that I can now <more>
check out as well.'The Guest' is certainly more of a thriller compared to their other previously mentioned works which would all have to be classified as horror. It's not short on violence whatsoever though, something these two seem to have no quarries about depicting and which I applaud them for. Dan Stevens, who I would never have guessed was British, is absolutely brilliant in the lead role. His perfect balance of charm and malice make for captivating viewing. He's another I'm very keen to see some previous/future work from.The final third of the film is very different to the first two but still works its own way. Wingard seems to have a very unique style to his work which is incredibly refreshing. For some reason the opening title's colour, font and music just really worked well to set the tone for the film. It seems the two filmmakers are prolifically hard workers which is fantastic news because if they can keep churning them out this fast and at this high quality audiences are in for a real treat in the future.
'80s nostalgia with modern visuals (by Transcendentals)
It feels almost inaccurate to refer to this movie as The Guest when in reality it was entirely carried by a wonderful performance by Dan Stevens. I enjoyed it thoroughly, which isn't at all to say it's what I would normally call a good movie. The movie is highly campy, reminiscent of '80s-'90s action movies / thrillers, and Dan Stevens brings in an excellent all around tongue in cheek tough 80's anti-hero performance. Stevens' acting is well matched by strong action that is to the point and not drawn out, as well as superbly chosen music, particularly in the climactic <more>
scenes. For any gamers out there, if you enjoyed Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon for the nostalgia and humor, you'll likely love this movie as much as I did.
Surprisingly good horror film with campy components (by brugoes)
Don't go in to this movie expecting a movie like SAW. I suggest going in to this movie just to enjoy it and not just to get scared. This movie was a horror film but it's more campy than scary. The cheesiness is on purpose and styles against 1980s horror films. The music in this movie is really great. The way they blend music and film was pretty awesomely done. The overall movie has a cheesy vibe but it's really well done and enjoyable. It's even funny in the most gripping moments. There is also a pretty awesome horror scene at the end involving magic mirrors and clowns like <more>
any kid's original nightmares. Overall I really enjoyed it but I don't think it's for everyone.
more fun than a barrel of hammers (by A_Different_Drummer)
An old idea nicely redone with top notch writing and direction.This is a breakout role for Dan Stevens who manages to commit horrible acts while at the same time being pleasant courteous and generally the kind of guy you'd be happy to have as your friend.In fact, this is one of those rare movies where the viewer has more fun if you root for the bad guy so to speak right from the opening scene.Hard to find fault with. Even the action scenes are done with the sort of precision you would expect from a martial arts movie.For perfectionists only -- at 1:17 in the movie, there is an <more>
outrageous plot hole. While everyone, including the killer, is going to extremes to keep secret the government project that started this mess, a secret government agent agent suddenly spills the beans to a young girl for no reason at all other than to provide backstory.Overlook that, and this is a fun flick.
