So there you are at home, minding your own business, when one day a handsome stranger called David—who looks a lot like Dan Stevens from out of Downton Abbey—turns up and claims to have been a friend of your sons from the army. In face he says he was there with him when he died, and that he asked this young man, with his slightly unsettling eyes, to pay the family a visit and make sure everyone was OK.

Well that’s a lovely thing, isn’t it? So what’s with all this creepy music? Why the tense score? Is it to do with him walking around the house topless and showing off his toned physique? And WHAT is he doing with that gun?

Ah never mind, it’ll probably be nothing. By all means invite him in. You definitely won’t regret it.

The Guest, directed by Adam Wingard and also starring Malika Monroe, Brendan Meyer, Sheila Kelley, Leland Orser and Lance Redick, is released in September.
