Forget Bond, take Dan Stevens home this December

Directed by Adam Wingard (You’re NextVHS) and written by Simon Barrett (You’re NextA Horrible Way To Die), THE GUEST is a psychological thriller starring former Downton Abbey heartthrob Dan Stevens as a dark, Machiavellian character who infiltrates a family, claiming to be a close friend of their son who died in action. However, a series of sinister events cause the daughter (played by Maika Monroe) to question whether he really is who he claims to be.

No other film this year has had the impact of The Guest. Dan Stevens puts in a performance that eats up the bigscreen and gives cinema a worthy rival for Bourne and Bond. After the superb You’re Next, Director Adam Wingard delivers exactly what fans want, and then some, in a genre busting film that screams out for, inevitable, repeat viewings.

With a killer 80s soundtrack and a witty script from You’re Next scribe Simon Barrett, The Guest is explosive, fun, scary, gory, sexy-cool and is guaranteed to be on everyone’s list of top films of the year. Now, audiences at home will get the chance to experience this thrill ride when it is released on 29th December.

Here is what the press has to say about the film:

“A Mesmerising performance from Dan Stevens” **** EMPIRE

“Will have genre fans grinning from ear to ear” **** TOTAL FILM

“Dan Stevens oozes movie star charisma” **** HEAT

“Stevens is truly mesmerising in a black comedy” **** EVENING STANDARD

“A riot from start to finish” **** DAILY STAR SUNDAY

This hotly anticipated home release just got even hotter with the announcement of the brand new Steelbook Blu-ray now available to preorder from Zavvi. Featuring a fantastic steely-eyed Dan Stevens on the cover, the Limited Edition release, with its dangerously different artwork, will also come with a whole host of extras including; Deleted Scenes and Audio Commentary from Director Adam Wingard.
