The Guest (2014)
First screened in September 2014
Director: Adam Wingard. Cast: Dan Stevens, Maika Monroe, Brendan Meyer, Sheila Kelley, Leland Orser, Tabatha Shaun, Lance Reddick, Chase Williamson, Joel David Moore, Brendan Wedner, Ethan Embry, Stephen Brown, Alex Knight. Screenplay: Simon Barrett. Twitter Capsule:Teorema redone as The Hottie that Rocks the Cradle, with Dan Stevens as even icier-eyed T-1000. First half beats second.
Proficient enough to compel attention, without the level of precision or coherence to make it unmissable. Could be a key film for Stevens or for Wingard, depending.
