The Guest on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The film is presented in the original 2.35:1 widescreen ratio and in 1080p high definition and it looks absolutely stunning, whether bright daytime scenes or dark party scenes. It’s also well-directed throughout, bringing you a couple of those ’70s-type moments as I mentioned earlier, which is also reflected in the design of the title.

The sound is in DTS HD 5.1 and while it’s not a special FX film, it has great use of music on a regular basis, as I’ve alighted to already.

The extras are as follows and they’re all in HD, but unfortunately way too small in number:

  • Deleted and alternate scenes (14:37): Seven of them here, and nothing that needs to be put back into the main film. An optional commentary track is available.

  • Trailer (1:33): In the original 2.35:1 widescreen ratio. It gives away too much, so I suggest you watch this AFTER the film.

  • Audio commentary: with director Adam Wingard, and writer Simon Barrett.

There are subtitles in English only, the number of chapters is a low and perfunctory 12, while the menu has the incidental music set to some clips from the film.

Sadly, Icon have included unrelated trailers BEFORE the main menu. I wish they wouldn’t do that. It just takes me back to the age-old days of rental video.

The Guest is released on December 29th on Blu-ray and DVD, and check out the clip below when Dan Stevens was on Good Morning Britain in September, promoting the film, and Susanna Reid asked him if he had to “beat off other actors” to get the role for The Guest! Ben Shephard can’t keep a straight face either 🙂
