Adam Wingard delighted horror fans last year with the awesome feature, You’re Next, and that was after delivering the classic serial killer tale A Horrible Way to Die, and also directing segments for VHS 1 & 2 and The ABCs of Death. Now he returns with The Guest, and after much speculation, we finally get a look at the film courtesy of the first teaser trailer.
A brand new image (above) has also been released.
Icon will release the film here in the UK on September 5th, a week after the film makes its UK debut at FrightFest.
The Guest is written by Simon Barrett and directed by Adam Wingard, and the cast includes Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey), Maika Monroe, Brendan Meyer, Sheila Kelley, Leland Orser, and Lance Reddick (American Horror Story, Fringe).
The film tells the story of a young soldier who arrives on the doorstep of the Peterson family, claiming to be a good friend of their beloved son who died in action. The Petersons welcome David into their home and into their lives, but when people start mysteriously dying in town, mayhem ensues as their teenage daughter Anna starts wondering if David is responsible.
