Words: Rob DeStefano
Last year’s release of You’re Next was an enormous treat for genre fans. It knocked off a few of the horror niches, serving up home invasion, slasher, and revenge, ultimately proving to be a clever subversion. Director Adam Wingard and screenwriter Simon Barrett continue their teamwork with The Guest, and by the tagline alone – “Be Careful Who You Let In” – it doesn’t seem to wander too far from their previous film. The trailer suggests a vengeful justice to bullying and lots of inexplicable machine gun rounds. With a noticeably larger budget, I’m curious to see what Wingard dishes out this time around. From the preview alone, I think it’s safe to say that he’s retained his appreciation toward violence, wit, and style.
Opens: September 17, 2014
