The film tells the story of a young soldier who arrives on the doorstep of the Peterson family, claiming to be a good friend of their beloved son who died in action. The Petersons welcome David into their home and into their lives, but when people start mysteriously dying in town, mayhem ensues as their teenage daughter Anna starts wondering if David is responsible.
“THE GUEST is hilariously fun and innovative, and its recent premiere at Sundance blew everyone away,” says Bob Berney, CEO of Picturehouse. “We pride ourselves on collaborating with filmmakers, and Keith, Jess, Adam and Simon are a force of nature.”
“We’re so excited to work with Bob and Jeanne at Picturehouse after long admiring the fantastic job they’ve done releasing some of our favorite movies of all time,” said producers Keith and Jessica Calder.
