The Guest ★★★★

There is no review for this diary entry. Add a review?

The soundtrack is straight out of a John Carpenter film, the central character from a certain 1984 James Cameron effort, and the final third's one that echoes The Shining. All its tongue-in-cheek pastiching aside though, what it most closely resembles (and I only put my finger on this when someone mentioned it afterwards) is Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt, but somewhat less domestic. Dan Stevens is also fantastic in a darkly nuanced central performance.
