The Guest

Hot horror director Adam Wingard (V/H/S, The ABCs of Death, You're Next) unleashes this blood-soaked, tongue-in-cheek thriller in which a mysterious stranger (Dan Stevens from "Downton Abbey") introduces himself to a grieving family in small-town New Mexico. He's ostensibly there to deliver the dying words of their soldier son. Not everything (or everyone) is what it seems, though, and the film soon explodes into a horror-fied Rambo-esque action thriller. Wingard clearly loves the hell out his '80s-style direct-to-video trash, since he's replicated it here right down to the cheesy synthesizer soundtrack. 99 minutes R.
