“The Guest (Dir. Adam Wingard)
A young soldier pays a surprise visit to his dead friend’s family. After moving in and working his charm on them all, it becomes clear that beyond his cheesy charisma and dreamy appearance, something is not quite right. Former Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens, ditches the chub to play the dashing guest in question. The most thrilling, suspenseful and surprising film of the year. Writer Simon Barret’s screenplay is packed with black comedy and sharp dialogue that is all brought to life with director Adam Wingard’s expertise. With it’s John Carpenteresque soundtrack, The Guest has the aesthetic sheen of Drive, the protagonist of The Terminator and a tongue that never fails to leave its cheek. ”
