The Guest [Blu-ray] 
Frequently bought together
Adam Wingard directs this US thriller in which an ex-soldier causes mayhem within a family. David (Dan Stevens) knocks at the door of the Peterson family and informs mother Laura (Sheila Kelley) that he was a close friend of Caleb (Chris Harding), the son she lost in combat. Welcomed into the family home, David is initially granted a hostile reception by Caleb's brother and sister, Luke (Brendan Meyer) and Anna (Maika Monroe). However, David's handy ability to buy booze and deal out violent retribution to bullies quickly ingratiates him with the teenagers. That is, until an usual sequence of events raises suspicions that David may not be who he claims. Will any light be shed on the guest's mysterious past?

IMO, Dan Stevens likes to toy with quirkiness and I'm here for it. This started out serious and fell into a familiar but fun stab at camp (no pun intended). You get the feeling that it takes itself seriously but ... doesn't? What you think is going to happen, totally happens and I was still so happy how it happened. I KNEW what was coming next but sat here wide-eyed waiting for it all to happen.
The cast all did a great job but I totally loved Stevens in this. He's being overlooked and underrated for some reason. We know he is a great actor, we know he's got The Look ™, and he's got a great and growing resume. At this point, if he's in it, I'll buy a ticket.
Also, um, dang, same Anna. I would need a minute after seeing him come out of the shower, too.

Dan Stevens gives a standout performance as the magnetic, seductive, yet utterly unnerving David: the mysterious house guest who claims to be the friend of a family's deceased eldest son, David seems determined to fix all the problems this troubled family has but Is David too good to be true? Does David have something to hide?
Maika Monroe also shines as the strong female co-lead, Anna: the older sister suspicious of David and his motives for helping her family.
Better than it's premise, this film is a triumph of style AND substance without either bogging down the movie.
Smart, suspenseful, filled with bloody action and strong performances - The Guest is highly enjoyable and well worth your time.
look out for an update.
