The Guest (2014)

Director: Adam Wingard. Cast: Dan Stevens, Sheila Kelley, Maika Monroe. 99 min. Rated R. Action/Thriller.

An ex-Iraq War soldier comes back home to offer condolences to the family of their recently-killed son ... but then people start dying when he's around. With an out-of-place 80's soundtrack and some fairly nonsensical story moments, similar to the director's horror movie You're Next, this bloody thriller's multiple twists keeps you engaged till the very end. As one of the films Dan Stevens (supposedly) left his career as Matthew Crawley in Downton Abbey to expand his horizons, I predict this movie will firmly establish him as a Hollywood player.
