“Who are you?”
”I’m a friend of the family.”
Fuuuuuuuuuuck yeah, The Guest rules.
Endlessly rewatchable, this movie is gorgeously shot and the soundtrack fuckin’ whips. Dan Stevens never has been, and likely never will be, better than he is in this movie. Maika Monroe is equally terrific. The thing that held me back on previous watches was the whole backstory with David, and while it still is a bit of a problem, the good parts of this movie are soooo good, that I just had to go the full 5 stars on this watch. Freakin’ Lance Reddick is the military dude trying to bring David in, and Lance Riddick is a badass!
There are so many scenes that kick ass: the bar scene, the diner scene, the climactic cat and mouse game through the Halloween maze at the school gym. Plus, the ending is one of the best of all time.
