Last week saw the release of the awesome full length US trailer for Adam Wingard’s new home invasion thriller, The Guest, and now comes a just as amazing UK trailer.
While slightly shorter, the UK trailer is a but more to the point, and also adds a good deal more black comedy and some great scenes of violence. Anyone who loved Wingard’s previous works of genius You’re Next and A Horrible Way to Die, plus his superb entries into the VHS series, are sure to love The Guest. I am so excited to be seeing this at FrightFest, so if you are going, then see you there!
The Guest will open the UK’s FrightFest on August Bank Holiday weekend.
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.
