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.

Glad you're all so happy. Sharing codes like this has meant that SFF has lost at least one major provider of tickets due to not being able to deliver their targeted audiences. That means less opportunity for the rest of us.

From SFF:

"...keeping a hold over the targeting of our audience is one of the biggest challenges currently facing ShowFilmFirst when trying to expand our offers. Recently, we were disappointed to have revoked our ticket allocation for a very high profile event. This could affect future offers from that show’s promoter and this was down to the fact that a very small handful of people insisted on sharing their codes publicly on social networks or special offer sites.

Please don’t do it. It’s not providing a service to other film/theatre/music fans, it’s just putting us all in danger of losing out on ticket allocations from promoters.

We get tickets because the producers want your feedback on how the show/concert/event played (please don’t forget to give us your feedback!)

We know the overwhelming majority of our members understand this, and if you do see someone sharing across the web, then please either let us know or else give them a quiet nudge, ask why they are doing so, and point out that they are putting everybody’s enjoyment at risk, including their own. After all, if you received an invite to a party or wedding, say, you wouldn’t then splash an open invite across the web, would you? We’re more than happy for you to tell your family and like-minded friends about us (in fact, we rather hope you do!), but please ask them to sign-up so that we can send invites directly to them.

So, should we continue to try and build our offering? Can we grow our community together? Do you enjoy receiving a variety of ticket offers and not just for film previews, and is it worth pursuing?"

Thank you for that message, I never thought of it like that. Next time will think twice about posting :)

Would rather you posted ;)

I'm a subscriber of TotalFilm who these codes are meant for. As soon as the email lands, someone like you posts it and the general public get all the tickets, before we have our chance.

Thanks for that :(

I am a member of SFF but I never get these codes so always get the tickets from HUKD.

"We get tickets because the producers want your feedback on how the show/concert/event played (please don’t forget to give us your feedback!)"

You have to be a member to get the tickets anyway and you would give a review once you see the movie so I do not understand how posting an offer like this on HUKD would put this criteria in danger?

It's because they were getting Glastonbury tickets I think, and that was withdrawn.

I agree. However, there are no restrictions except a PIN, which means anybody can use it who has a PIN. They should be implementing identity checks upon admission, withholding privileges if proper feedback is not given, tying unique PINs to email addresses, that sort of thing. It would be nice if everybody in the country bound themselves to a honour code, but that will never happen and it's naive to request people restrict themselves to a system that the company has not implemented.

And having had a quick scout around their website, they don't seem to mention that screenings aren't open to anybody with a PIN either. I'm sure there are people who breach the code of faith without realising; I'm one of them. I just went to check my account details (demographic information, basically) and there's nothing to say that it determines what I get tickets for. I had just assumed I wasn't getting very many emails because all the tickets had been snapped up by the time it came to mailing me and I could get in first by using a PIN from here. I'm still not sure if that's untrue.

I'm not blaming them per se, but if I were a company who wanted a particular audience and the service provider did not have any safe-guards then I wouldn't have much patience either. It's supposed to be their job!

whether they are meant for magazines or whether people get them on here doesn't matter. what matters is that the seats are filled, that's all the cinemas want, and people leave reviews, that is all SFF want. there is no difference to me picking up a code here and picking one up in a magazine. how many magazines are printed in a run? a damn sight many more than tickets available. you could get a magazine at 6am on the day of release and still find the tickets have gone even without people sharing codes. this is about seeing films and leaving reviews. nothing more. it's money for the cinemas because it gets people through the door and they buy snacks and its money for SFF when reviews are posted.

SFF already have a security system when they have invited guests only shows but the only thing that happens is you get half empty cinemas much like the tickets for the Olympics in 2012 which were allocated to companies instead of the people who really wanted to go and we ended up with empty stadiums. all SFF have to do is make every show invited guests only and it will stop sharing of codes completely.
