Top Ten reasons why ‘The Guest’ is the best this fest(ive) period…

23 December 2014

To celebrate the DVD, Blu-ray and VOD release of Adam Wingard's The Guest, The Fan Carpet are excited to bring you the top 10 reasons why the action packed thriller is so awesome!

Still struggling over the loss of their oldest son, Caleb, to the war in Afghanistan, the Peterson family finds some solace when an unexpected visitor knocks on its door. David (Dan Stevens, Downton Abbey), a steely eyed and charismatic soldier who was recently discharged, is welcomed into their home when he comes to fulfill a promise he made to his fallen comrade. Siblings Anna (Maika Monroe, Labor Day, The Bling Ring) and Luke (Brendan Meyer) are at first reluctant to accept David’s presence, but he soon wins them over. Though he appears to be the perfect houseguest, a mysterious and sinister chain of events causes Anna to question whether David is actually whom he claims to be.



Directed by Adam Wingard (You’re Next, VHS) and written by Simon Barrett (You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die), the cast also includes Sheila Kelley (Matchstick Men), Leland Orser (Taken) and Lance Reddick (The Wire).

    1.    Dan Stevens smouldering for an hour and a half, YEAH!
    2.    It's extremely quotable (i.e. What the f**k?)
    3.    It's bad-assery at its best
    4.    Plenty o' slow-mo sequences to re-enact with your friends
    5.    DS has taught us how to make a variety of cocktails including FIREBALLS
    6.    It has (non)sensical violence against smart ass teens!
    7.    Because this beats the Christmas repeats by a mile
    8.    Guns, grenades, bar other festive things!
    9.    You can dance around unashamadly to the killer 80s soundtrack
    10.    It's crazy, fun, endlessly entertaining and quite frankly....
