The Perfect Host- August 4th

The Perfect Host (2010)
English- Thriller/Dark Comedy
Rated “R”
Runtime- 92 min
dir. Nick Tomnay

This definitely went exactly as planned. I thought I would get a weird psycho-thriller, and wow, that’s exactly what I got.

Story/Writing: 1.5/2

Lots of really good twists and turns. There definitely could have been some more development in certain areas, the secondary characters especially.

Acting: 1.5/2

Clayne Crawford is able to move the plot along alright by himself, but the real focus becomes David Hyde Pierce. I haven’t seen such a deep villain in quite a while.

Photography/Set: 1.5/2

The central set of the house is really cool, especially as the director continues to explore it throughout the film.

Sound/FX: 1.5/2

Visceral visual effects are definitely pivotal to acheicveing the desired effect of the film.  The soundtrack is pretty good too.

Misc: 1.5/2

Some great elements almost add up to a great film.

VERDICT: 7.5/10

Very watchable for most any audience.
