Wingard & Barrett’s “THE GUEST” Arrives this SeptemberNews Samuel Zimmerman
After its stylized, colorful swoon thrilled audiences at Sundance and SXSW, the latest film from YOU’RE NEXT team Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett has an official stateside date.
Starring DOWNTON ABBEY’s Dan Stevens, THE GUEST is a vivid, style-heavy thriller in which the Peterson family welcomes a young soldier into their home, and a series of accidental deaths seem to be connected to his presence. Stevens is unreal as “The Guest,” a military man whose cool demeanor is increasingly menacing throughout. In fact, the entire ensemble, including Maika Monore, Sheila Kelley and Leleand Orser are fantastic.
Picturehouse will release THE GUEST in theaters September 17. Find the film’s first teaser, below.
