Review: House Guest (2013)

First I´d like to thank Brian Jalbert for contacting me and providing me with a screener.
A vicious murderer is on the loose and the entire city is on edge. It's the perfect evening for Rob Murphy (Alex Vincent) and Jen Murphy (Maylin Morera) to lock the doors and have a night at home with some friends. But what happens if one of the guests you've invited, is in fact the brutal killer that the city is fearing? House Guest is written by Alex Vincent and is directed by Jake Jalbert. The acting is good and there´s pretty good chemistry between the characters. The film makers make good use of the setting which for the most part is limited to the interiors of a house. It´s nicely shot and edited, it´s a good looking movie. The soundtrack is very nice and effective! The pacing is good, actually the pacing is too good as in my opinion it could have had a little bit longer running time. The film makers create a nice suspenseful atmosphere. There are several violent scenes in House Guest but there is only brief gore, the high light being when a throat gets slashed. There is topless nudity in this early on, within the first two minutes, courtesy of Krystal Pixie Adams who is simply credited as playing the Blond Girl.
This review is based upon an online screener provided by Brian Jalbert.
Rating: 5½ out of 7 . House Guest is a nice little (the running time is just 71 minutes) thriller. It´s well made, pretty suspenseful and entertaining. Check it out!
