The very night Stella (Camilla Filippi) wants to jump out of a window to end her own life she's interrupted by a stranger (Guido Caprino) knocking on her door insisting he has booked a room at her bed-and-breakfast - and that's despite Stella having given up the business months ago, ever since her husband Sandro (Edoardo Pesce) has left her. Initially Stella wants to send him away, but then there's a thunderstorm outside, plus the stranger, Giulio, tells her he's a friend of Sandro's, whom Stella's still in love with, and Sandro might show up later on. And on closer inspection, Giulio is actually a pretty nice guy - that is, until he gets a little too inquisitive and personal in their conversations. Eventually, Sandro does show up, but rather because Stella has texted him for assistance, and he claims he doesn't know Giulio at all - upon which Giulio knocks both him and Stella out, and when they come to they find themselves tied to chairs, and Giulio starts questioning them, especially about their son (Romeo Pellegrini), who has locked himself into his room upstairs he hardly ever leaves, and Giulio knows quite a few things he has no business knowing. But he also knows that Sandro has a kid with the woman he's living with now, something he has never told Stella. But how can he know all these things, and why is he so furious about them? And how far will he go in his rage?


Ok, the basic plot of this movie might be a bit far-fetched, even within the horror genre's rather loose limitations, But that's not to say that The Guest House cannot be a pretty impressive little shocker still: Tension and suspense are on the high pretty much all through the movie, the story's character-driven, and even if the key twist seems to give itself away early on, there are many surprises in the film throughout, and the direction is very stylish and atmosphere heavy without smothering the story. And a trio of very solid leads only helps to make this a pretty exciting genre effort.
