The Perfect Host Trailer

Let's party! Oh you gotta love concepts that twist concepts. The Perfect Host is a slippery psychological thriller that exposes true human nature and reveals just how far we're willing to go to satisfy our needs. David Hyde Pierce of "Fraiser" stars as Warwick Wilson, our "host", and he's joined by Clayne Crawford, Nathaniel Parker and Megahn Perry. Magnolia recently debuted the trailer on Apple for the release of this film, which first premiered at Sundance in early 2010. As usual, I'm surprised by how good some of the indie films I miss at Sundance actually look. I am definitely renting this! "Is everyone not enjoying themselves?!"

Watch the official trailer for Nick Tomnay's The Perfect Host:

A criminal on the run cons his way into the wrong dinner party… where the host is anything but ordinary.

The Perfect Host is both written & directed by Australian first-time feature filmmaker Nick Tomnay, of a couple of shorts previously. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival back in early 2010 and also played at the Fantasia International Film Festival. Magnolia Pictures is finally bringing The Perfect Host to limited theaters on July 1st as well as VOD starting on May 27th this summer. Anyone curious to see this?

    The ending ruined the movie for me. What the fuck. Why would they show they were all imaginary in the trailer? I'm pissed! That and the cuts on the guys face going on and off just showed too much of a this is a cut from the end, from the beginning, from the middle stitch job. REALLY bad trailer edit.

      Yes, I agree with everything you said; those were all the same problems I had with the trailer myself. Too bad.

      Maybe... JUST MAYBE... It's not as important as you think. They probably reveal it early on.
    • It's called Good Movies Ruined by Trailers Syndrome. It's spreading all cross Hollywood.

      How was this ruined for you? Its akin to saying that revealing Tony Stark to be Iron Man in the trailer would ruin Iron Man for you.

        You're clearly not getting it.

        Considering this is a thriller(so it seems; though comedic), suspense is a key factor to making the genre enjoyable ...that was a huge spoiler, that would be like someone saying Bruce Willis was dead all the time. In action movies, there really isn't any suspense to adhere to.

      i do kind of agree with you. but the fact he was having a dinner party with dance numbers and conga lines kinda gave that away a little earlier

    Looks interesting. I may rent, also!
  • Hit sure has piqued my interest. David Hyde Pierce looks great in this film.
  • Iwelford
    Looks like a great mix of 2 amazing movies, American Psycho and Hard Candy. Should be good!
  • this looks really good
  • David Hyde Pierce? The man's name is Niles Crane!

    All people do on this website is complain about how every movie looks awful.

      No, that's just what happens on the internet. It's far more entertaining to bitch and complain about shit than to say "I think this looks good". Alternatively, if the movie looks like it'll be REALLY good, or if it's based on a comic that you really like and it looks good, then it's also OK to post something like "OMFG THIS LOOKS FUCKING AMAZING!!!!!!1" Being negative, tho, is far more stimulating. It makes people feel better about themselves to be so negative about everything else.

    It was a great movie until the end. Too much was left unanswered probably because they want to make part II. Whether that is the intent or not, the movie makers definitely dropped the ball at the end. In my opinion, it’s shameful to make a great movie with a terrible ending. In short the ending was an unfinished script that destroyed what could have been a memorable classic.
