The Guest

de Adam Wingard



The Petersons are still grieving over the loss of Caleb in Afghanistan. At the height of their mourning, David appears at the family’s home and wins over its members, until one of them starts to suspect that David isn’t who he appears to be. The man responsible for You're Next blasts away at the family unit with violence once again, in a combination of slasher and action movie.
