A couple checks into a vacation rental, only to find that the anonymous host likes to play games on its guests.
The throwback short film stars Ashley Bell (The Last Exorcism) and Noureen DeWulf (Good Girls) as a couple who soon regrets renting this picturesque home for their long awaited vacation. The film is directed by Megan Freels Johnston.
"Dear Guest" is a recognizable trope that remains eerie and modern. As timeless as it is the notion of a unseen force manipulating your life is as chilling as ever. "Dear Guest"manages to capture that fear in a very short amount of time. The story is evenly paced, constant and entertaining. It is reminiscent of The Twilight Zone and Outer Limits stories. Plus "Dear Guest" left me wanting more. (3.5/5)
