The 2014 Film4 Frightfest will open with Adam Wingard's (You're Next, A Horrible Way To Die) The Guest. Starring Dan Stevens of Downton Abbey fame, this is billed as an homage to 80's action flicks. The movie opens with the Peterson family struggling with the loss of their oldest son. They find solace in an unexpected visitor (Stevens). As a sinister chain of events begins to unfold, the Petersons begin to question who this guest really is.
Adam Wingard is quoted as saying, "FrightFest movie goers are some of the most diehard genre enthusiasts in the world. Naturally, I am delighted that The Guest will be opening this year's festival."
Written by Wingard's longtime movie-making partner, Simon Barrett, The Guest is sure to be a great horror thriller.
