Treated myself to doing a fun illustration just for me earlier this week.
The Guest was one of my film highlights of last year. It was almost custom-built to appeal to me: Carpenter inspired goth-synth soundtrack? Check. A giddy, mischievous sense of humour that dares you to laugh at every ominous smash-cut? Check. A gloriously bonkers final act, coated in neon blues and pinks? Check. You can enjoy it as a fun genre-hopping horror/action film, but if you want to intellectualise it as a critique of how we treat our war veterans and as an exploration of the destructive consequences of PTSD, there's plenty there for you.
I also enjoyed You're Next, from the same writer/director team. Again, another genre deconstruction that would sit comfortably in a double bill with Cabin In The Woods. Looking forward to seeing what they follow this up with.
