“The Guest” director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett stopped by TheWrap’s video studio along with stars Dan Stevens, Maika Monroe and Lance Reddick
Wingard revealed he was inspired by a double-feature of “The Terminator” and “Halloween” that served as a “great starting point” for the project.
“Downton Abbey” fans aren’t likely to look at Stevens the same way again, while newcomer Monroe also makes a strong impression as a young woman who must protect her family from a dangerous visitor with a military background.

“Having seen ‘You’re Next,’ I knew that [Adam] and Simon enjoyed very much going down the rabbit hole and it looked like they were gonna go back down with this movie, and I wanted to join them,” explained Stevens.
