The Guest (2014)Adam Wingard's development as a director has been astounding, from… More Adam Wingard's development as a director has been astounding, from V/H/S to You're Next to his newest piece of gorily fluorescent euphoria, The Guest. This film is cold, hard, gritty proof that the man knows exactly what he is doing and builds intensity with perfect timeliness. Filled with alluringly smooth 80s music and one hell of an original storyline that escalates with massive unpredictability, The Guest flourishes as a uniquely constructed thriller. It is darkly intense and comical, as we've come to expect from Wingard's work, but the film's real strength is its spectacular cinematography, particularly towards the end of the film. Its neon-lights and gore-infused ambiance is a feast on the eyes, and Dan Stevens excels in his role as David with intricacy, mystery, and of course, seductiveness. (C'mon, look at those bright blue eyes. It's impossible not to swoon.) The Guest is, by far, Wingard's best work as of yet. As a die-hard fan of his, I cannot wait to see where he goes from here.
