The Guest Disutradarai oleh Adam Wingard
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.

  • Bizzskip Nurse's rating of the film The Guest

    "Fuck the story. 80s music. References. References. Blood, violence. Dan Stevens. Homage. 80s music. Explosion/something cool. Dan Stevens. Bad taste on purpose. Style. Style. Style." it doesn't work often with many movies but why i feel so satisfied until the end?

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • Zachary T.'s rating of the film The Guest

    Wingard and Barrett turn in another 80's genre piece that's painstakingly accurate, for better and for worse. Clichés, clumsy exposition and laughable acting are laid on thick, though that's arguably part of the charm. Where the filmmakers truly shine however is in creating memorable moments -- with careful music choices, lighting and atmosphere. Dan Stevens' performance is frightening and charismatic.

  • Jordan Kaltz's rating of the film The Guest

    any film with this much appreciation for halloween III is kl in my book B-) also am up for more maika monroe horror/thriller movies with amazing scores- would make a nice double bill with it follows!!

  • J. O.'s rating of the film The Guest

    A lot of fun. An exciting mash-up of 80s horror, action, and even teen comedy tropes. It begins feeling a little unsure, but quickly finds its footing. Genuine laughs, a (mostly) solid cast, high kill count, and a pulsating score amount to quite an entertaining little film. Wingard and Barrett have a long way to go, though, as the ending comes apart at the seams and scene after scene takes the easy way out.

  • msmichel's rating of the film The Guest

    80's style action homage from director Wingard and writer Simon Barrett that is styled and cut like a horror film right down to it's Carpenter like score. Stevens and Monroe are well cast here. After 'Horrible Way to Die' and 'You're Next', Wingard is quickly emerging as a new genre auteur. Young Monroe, along with her turn in 'It Follows', brings a modern female sensibility to a once tired genre.

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film The Guest

    While I have to express disappointment that the filmmakers behind "You're Next" once again took the easy route and traded in any subtlety for a high body count in the third act...I was nonetheless seduced by the film's update on the "Teorema"/"Visitor Q" formula, not to mention Dan Stevens' star-making performance (as charismatic as he is terrifying) and the airy, Eighties synth-music score.
