The Guest (2014) – Review
A lone stranger arrives at a quaint homestead, he just needs a place to stay and is willing to help out for room and board, but when threats to the family arise this lone stranger is revealed to be an avenging angel of badassery. If you’ve seen the classic western Shane, or let’s face it any one of countless other western, this is a very familiar trope, but what if that lone stranger turned out to be a murdering psychotic sociopath who is just as likely to bite the hand that feeds it as its enemies? This is the premise behind director Adam Wingard’s excellent 2014 horror/thriller.
