You think you know what Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett are capable of? Think again. Their past work including You’re Next and their contributions to V/H/S, V/H/S 2 and The ABCs of Death are still great and all, but their latest feature, The Guest, is like nothing you’ve ever seen before. It stars Dan Stevens as David, a soldier who shows up at the Peterson family’s door claiming to be a friend of their son who died in action. The Guest does have a horror quality to it, but it’s more of a bloody action thriller than anything, and an expertly stylized one at that.
With The Guest making its way into theaters in less than a month, on September 17th, Collider’s got the honor of unveiling a brand new poster for the film.
