The Guest First Look

First things first, if you haven't seen You're Next yet, it's one of the best horror-thrillers in years and worth a watch. Once you're familiar with that film, you can prepare yourself for this first look at Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett's next film, an action-thriller titled The Guest. The film was just announced as one of the eight Park City at Midnight premieres at the Sundance 2014 in January, and these three new first look photos go hand in hand with that reveal. It's hard to piece together what exactly we're seeing, but these do present an interesting first look at what should be another kick ass film from Wingard and Barrett.

Synopsis from Sundance: A soldier on leave befriends the family of a fallen comrade. He soon becomes a threat to everyone around him when it's revealed he's not who he says he is. Another version floating around before explains it slightly different: "The story follows an ex-Marine who returns a changed man from a tour of duty and becomes a houseguest to a military family whose eldest son recently died." The cast includes Dan Stevens, Maika Monroe, Leland Orser, Lance Reddick, Chase Williamson and Brendan Meyer. Directed by Adam Wingard, written by Simon Barret (the duo behind A Horrible Way to Die, You're Next, V/H/S 1&2). The film will be premiering at Midnight at Sundance 2014 in January. We'll be seeing it there.

Loved You're Next. Thought it was an excellent tongue-in-cheek horror film. Saw here in Toronto in theaters. Worth seeing on the big screen. This looks good too. Looking forward to reading your Sundance review

Some of those screens have a definite DRIVE feel.
