Exclusive photos: Halloween night with Wingard and Barrett’s “THE GUEST”


THE GUEST, from the creators of YOU’RE NEXT, arrives in theaters in September, part of it takes place on our favorite October holiday and we’ve got a couple of exclusive pics from that sequence to show you right now.

Directed by Adam Wingard and scripted by Simon Barrett, THE GUEST stars DOWNTON ABBEY’s Dan Stevens as David (pictured above and in 1st photo below), a soldier who arrives on the doorstep of the Peterson family (including Maika Monroe as Anna, 2nd photo), claiming to be a friend of their son, who was killed in battle. After they invite David to stay with them, a series of violent events suggests there’s more to him than he’s telling. The cast also includes Sheila Kelley, Leland Orser, Brendan Meyer, FRINGE’s Lance Reddick, CHEAP THRILLS’ Ethan Embry, HATCHET’s Joel David Moore and JOHN DIES AT THE END’s Chase Williamson. Picturehouse opens THE GUEST September 17, and it’ll have its Los Angeles premiere on Sunday, August 10 at 4 p.m. at the Sundance NEXT FEST at the Theatre at Ace Hotel Downtown (with Wingard and a special guest to be announced in attendance). Check out the movie’s teaser trailer below the photos, and head over to the official website and Facebook page.
