About the Movie
A mysterious stranger befriends a grieving family, but his hidden past soon puts them all in danger in the edgy, suspense film The Guest, coming to Blu-ray™ Combo Pack with DVD and Digital HD with Ultraviolet™ on January 6, 2015 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. From director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett, the masterminds behind the award-winning modern horror tale You’re Next, The Guest earned a “Certified Fresh” seal on Rotten Tomatoes with a remarkable score of 92% and starsDan Stevens (“Downton Abbey,” A Walk Among the Tombstones), who transforms himself from Edwardian gentleman to ripped modern warrior, and a talented cast including Maika Monroe (Labor Day, The Bling Ring), Sheila Kelley (“Lost,” “Gossip Girl”), Leland Orser (Taken, “24”) and Lance Reddick (John Wick, “Fringe”). Filled with dark humor and explosive violence that critics are calling “all kinds of awesome” (Sara Michelle Fetters, MovieFreak) and “impossibly cool” (Samuel Zimmerman, Fangoria), The Guest Blu-ray™ Combo Pack includes behind-the-scenes bonus features that unravel thesecrets of this intense and unpredictable thrill ride.

Recently discharged from the military, David Collins (Dan Stevens) unexpectedly shows up at the Peterson family’s doorstep, claiming to be their late son’s Army buddy. Welcomed into their home, the well-mannered stranger becomes part of the family until a shocking wave of violence raises daughter Anna’s (Maika Monroe) suspicions that the mysterious ex-soldier is not quite what he seems.

My Take on the Movie
This was a movie that was not only a great mystery, but it also was filled with great characters that keep you connected from beginning to end. David was a character that kept me wondering. For quite some time I found myself trying to figure out his story and where he would go in the end. Would he be a hero or villain? The movie was action packed and reminded me of some of my favorite movies from the 80's and 90's that kept me on the edge of my seat and made me come back for more. I hope that this will not be the last we see David's character!
