  1. Adam Whybray's rating of the film The Guest

    2.5 stars. Watching this was needful at the end of Mubi's Bergman season. If I had known it was set around Halloween with attendant decorations I would have watched it sooner. I preferred the first half when I could pretend it was a 1940s melodrama. The mannered acting was pleasingly of-a-piece with the aesthetic. A sexy and goofy piece of cinematic malarky in which Dan Stevens was very hot.

  2. samuele90's rating of the film The Guest

    Bel film. Un po' meno bello che Dan Stevens m'abbia reso amedeo.

  3. Natasha Angashanova's rating of the film The Guest

    HATE IT. The devil is in the details

  4. Bob's rating of the film The Guest

    Flawed screenplay with forced actions, unnatural decisions and pacing problems, but it's a pure joy to look at it and to hear it. Cinematography and music mirrors Nicolas Wending Refin's finest moments, while the action scenes and main antagonist deliver exploitation entertainment. Despite all its flaws, it could end up as a future cult classic.

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film The Guest

    Sur la traditionnelle thématique de la "home invasion", une œuvre plutôt plaisante, fortement ripolinée, avec le charismatique Dan Stevens en "guest star", que l'on peu accepter comme telle, pourvu que l'on parvienne à faire fi des évidentes lourdeurs et autres flagrantes invraisemblances inhérentes à ce jour de production... www.cinefiches.com

  6. mpho3's rating of the film The Guest

    "Blood-soaked action trash of a high grade, on a low budget that embraces various stylistic choices [which] underline the pic’s 1970s grindhouse and ’80s direct-to-VHS lineage. Downton Abbey’s Stevens knocks a showy, 100% ‘Murrican role out of the park. There’s never any doubt that his David is one bat-crazy lethal weapon, as well as one sexy MF." - Dennis Harvey, Variety. 3.5 stars

    Somebody saw Drive, didn't they.

  8. teler_thriller's rating of the film The Guest

    You don't know anything about the Guest, unless he comes to do some 'unexpected errands'. Well, he's too perfect at the first glance, but you know that 'too perfect' is a code for something bad. I like the OST, btw.

  13. Denise Moriya's rating of the film The Guest

    synthwave + 80s teen movies=best movie in a while

  14. ABVH's rating of the film The Guest

    Dan Stevens rules the movie. Movie itself is a strange blend of thriller and dark comedy horror.

  15. Enrico Cioni's rating of the film The Guest

    Loved it. Funny and smart, great music, and the performance of the century from Dan Stevens.

  17. Taufiq Hariyadi's rating of the film The Guest

  18. Z's rating of the film The Guest

    A stylish and cheerfully ridiculous throwback to early 90's thrillers like Bad Influence, Unlawful Entry and Single White Female. Dan Stevens gives a star making performance as the manipulative, wild-eyed psychotic David. We are in immediate sympathy with Maika Monroe's character which she brings her usual thoughtful vulnerability and strength to. Wingard delivers genre thrills with knowing delight and cheeky elan.

  19. John von Seneca's rating of the film The Guest

    Nice thriller. Its formulaic but thats what it strives to be. A nice blend of 80's styles, synth and quite simplistic. What more can one ask for a dose of nostalgia?

  20. ionosonde's rating of the film The Guest

    i thought it started out pretty dang strong! then it went downhill bit by bit until the gratuitous and self-aware ending sequence kicked it back up for a smooth finish. dan stevens did a great job as the lead, and the soundtrack really set the tone (and the right one, at that) for the film.

  21. Christopher Morgan's rating of the film The Guest

    Went into this with expectations that were wildly off. I read that some people compare Mr. Wingard as having some carpenter vibes and after watching you're next i came into this thinking it was going to be a horror movie. Visually it's nothing to write home about except for the last 10 minutes. It definitely plays up the cheese factor a lot. The music is pretty nice throwback 80's synth tho.

  22. Jim Fear's rating of the film The Guest

  23. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Guest

    My favorite line was "Bring a knife to school. If they take it off you and beat you up, you go around their houses at night and burn them down with their families inside. What's the worst they can do?" Always good advice. The soundtrack sounded like it was from a bad porno movie from the 80's. What is up with the retro muzak?

  24. Mr. Paper's rating of the film The Guest

    La verdad es muy entretenida. La producción esta muy bien hecha, y el hecho de que tomen como referencia visual las películas de los 80 me pareció genial para la atmosfera. Aunque tiene detalles con la historia, y ciertas actuaciones de actores secundarios, sus protagonistas dan una gran actuación. Además, tiene uno de los mejores soundtracks que he escuchado en los últimos años.
