The Guest held its world premiere at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and now the next film from You’re Next duo Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett, will be making its way to TIFF’s Midnight Madness line-up before heading into theaters. The thriller tracks a soldier who taken in to the home of the family of a fallen comrade, one who becomes a threat to those around him when they discover dangerous secrets in his past.

Ahead of a September release, the full-length trailer has now landed, revealing much more of the story. We were fans of it at Sundance, saying in our review, it’s “a comfortably diverting riff on most all of the action/thriller elements from the ’80s that made performers like Kurt Russell bigger than life.” Led by Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens, Maika Monroe, Leland Orser, Lance Reddick, Chase Williamson and Brendan Meyer, check it out below.

Update: Watch the U.K. trailer below.


The Guest opens on September 17th via Picturehouse.
