The Guest (2014) Trailer
I’m very confused. Check out this trailer for Adam Wingard’s new film The Guest, and see what surface conclusions you reach;
Looks like a standard issue action/rom-com/comedy right? Another sleepwalk written, 90 minutes of formulaic product designed to fill screens and evaporate like morning dew come the closing titles? Well apparently not as people have been going crazy about the movie, citing it as a deeply subversive inversion of action movie tropes with a very, very black hearted sense of humour which is totally forbidden from the trailer. This is very strange, I’m very reluctantly coming round to giving this a try, I just hope this isn’t some incredibly elaborate practical joke….
