The unanimous praise coming out of the Sundance Film Festival is that Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett’s The Guest is an 80’s homage to classic Cannon films.
Ryan Daley writes in from the ongoing film festival seconding the hype for the flick starring Dan Stevens as an ex-Marine who returns from a tour of duty a changed man and terrorizes a military family whose eldest son recently died.
From the team behind You’re Next, V/H/S, V/H/S/2 and A Horrible Way to Die, Daley raves about the film in his review: “As a straight-up action picture, The Guest is a undeniable success. The crunchy fight scenes are filmed with a confident finesse that highlights Wingard’s progression as an action filmmaker, his reliance on slurpy sound effects notwithstanding. The entire picture sports the quaint, old-school charm of revenge classics like Pale Rider and Walking Tall.“
