    • Excerpt: the kind of film genre fans endlessly seek but so rarely find in today’s glut of mind-numbingly staged grandstanding.
  • Patrick Bromley @ F This Movie!
  • Billy Donnelly @ This Is Infamous
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: Stevens is incredibly effective in a role that an actor could easily miscalculate.
  • Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: ‘The Guest’ is a well-paced thriller concerning a young man whose visit to the home of a fallen comrade appears to coincide with a series of violent crimes.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @
    • Excerpt: “[C]inema is over, man, and there’s nothing left but a death spiral of sarcastic self-reference reflecting and refracting around a dismal hall of movie mirrors and taunting us with the echoing emptiness our creatively bankrupt souls.”
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Without ever trying to be anything more than it is, “The Guest” is a blast of an adult crowd-pleaser that blows the doors off of idiotic, junky, self-serious studio thrillers. Sometimes, a cigar is just a cigar—or a body-count thriller is just a body-count thriller—but Hitchcock might have approved of this indelible slice of cake.
  • Brent McKnight @ Beyond Hollywood
    • Excerpt: The Guest is a fun, taut thriller that hits where it needs to, keeps up the pace throughout, and should prove more than satisfactory, especially for those of you with a proclivity towards the low-budget exploitation fare of a bygone era.
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: Invite him to stay…
  • Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
    • Excerpt: Adam Wingard pays homage to the horror genre, by adhering to the distinct conventionalities with a tongue firmly in his cheek.
  • Paulo Peralta @ CinEuphoria [Portuguese]
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Grade-A trash, an absurdly enjoyable piece of pulp hokum that’s a throwback to some of the best B-movies of the seventies and eighties.
