The Guest (2014)

A soldier introduces himself to the Peterson family, claiming to be a friend of their son who died in action. After the young man is welcomed into their home, a series of accidental deaths seem to be connected to his presence.

9/10 – Probably one of my favourite films of the year. From the mind of Adam Windgard (You’re Next, VHS 2), it is an obvious throwback to the 1970-80’s style of horror movies, combining certain qualities that make it resemble a combination of The Terminator, Red State and Drive. Darkly funny, yet savagely violent, Dan Stevens just seems to effortlessly wander about smirking at people while you just sit and wait for the next crazy thing to happen. It is utterly ridiculous, and the most amount of fun I have had watching a movie in a long time. Highly recommended, and the soundtrack is worth getting too.

Note: Reviews will be shorter until the backlog of reviews are cleared up.
