Join us to watch your new favorite action-thriller, as Dan Stevens rings the doorbell to carry out some unfinished pulse-pounding business in The Guest. A collaborative effort from the beloved genre duo of Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett, The Guest boasts a synth score as killer as the handsome soldier who arrives unannounced and throws the Peterson family’s life upside-down. Dan Stevens dazzles as essentially a human Terminator, and meets his match by a stand-out performance from Maika Monroe and a seriously kickass turn from the late, great, Lance Reddick. The Guest was only released in 53 theaters during its original run in 2014, a shame as this is the kind of film that demands to be shown on the big screen.
