The Guest is a self-aware, aesthetically accomplished and joyfully-bombastic throwback to ‘80s straight-to-video fare. Weaving in elements of thrillers, horror and the Seagal vehicles of yesteryear, [Wingard and Barrett] have crafted a wonderful homage/parody of the era’s B-movie offerings that manages to never be too on-the-nose with its humour and maintains a fairly entertaining facade of legitimate plot throughout.

Wingard and Barrett have made major leaps as filmmakers since their diverting but convoluted You’re Next. That film never transcended its many derivations, but The Guest is carried by an intense and surprising mood of erotic melancholia.

The Guest is another adventure in quotation-mark homage. This time, though, the marks are sarcastically real (see the first name in the closing credits). That sarcasm is all over the movie, and it’s tricky. There’s no reason for them to take any of this seriously, and they don’t. But they do care just enough to communicate that they like their winking psycho. So do I.
