The Uninvited Guest (2004) Review:
The Uninvited Guest (El Habitante Incierto being the original title) is a Spanish horror thriller from genius Spanish director Guillem Morales who, in my opinion, is one of the most promising modern horror directors. He only made a couple of films so far: this one and Los Ojos de Julia (2010), which are both playing with the topic of “being seen or being able to see” and are both truly awesome.
The Uninvited Guest starts as a classic home invasion: someone gets into the house and disappears. By the time Felix starts to ear noises and searches the house, the viewer is already totally immersed in the atmosphere….and only 20 minutes are gone. The other 70 minutes contain some of the most stressful moments I ever experienced.
Quickly, you’ll understand that The Uninvited Guest is not your usual home invasion film. The film never makes it clear whether the guy is crazy or if someone is really invading his house, and use it cleverly to keep the audience on edge. The behavior of the house owner is quite rational at first, but quickly deteriorate as the stress kicks in. In the movie’s second part, everything really goes to pure madness, in a great way. I found this secondary story, very strangely related to the first part, even better than the first part.
The end is great and brings a lot of surprises. It is the perfect conclusion to a wonderful movie: clever, stressful as hell and psychologically full of meaning. The type of experience that makes you fully search your house before going to bed
