Still struggling over the loss of their oldest son, Caleb, to the war in Afghanistan, the Peterson family finds some solace when an unexpected visitor knocks on its door. David (Dan Stevens), a steely eyed and charismatic soldier who was recently discharged, is welcomed into their home when he comes to fulfill a promise he made to his fallen comrade. Siblings Anna and Luke are at first reluctant to accept David’s presence, but he soon wins them over. Though he appears to be the perfect houseguest, a mysterious and sinister chain of events causes Anna to question whether David is actually whom he claims to be.
Directed by Adam Wingard (You’re Next, VHS), written by Simon Barrett (You’re Next, A Horrible Way To Die), Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) is joined by Maika Monroe (The Bling Ring, It Follows), Sheila Kelley (Matchstick Men), Leland Orser (Taken), Lance Reddick (The Wire) and Brendan Meyer.
The Guest received its world premiere at Sundance Film Festival and appeared in the Midnighter lineup at SXSW in March.
