Two movies titled The Guest enter, only one will leave (with its title) as Herman Davis and Robert Rau watch the criminally underrated 2014 thriller and the 1963 substitute for Ambien to determine which deserves the title The Guest.
The 2014 The Guest is a personal favorite of Robert’s, which means the deck is certainly stacked. If you haven’t seen the Dan Stevens/Maika Monroe tale of a guy who’s here to help, go out and watch it without listening to this podcast because the guys spoil a good bit of the movie. As for the 1963 The Guest, you can go on ignoring that movie. Based on a hit play and starring Robert Shaw and Donald Pleasence, it was originally called The Caretaker and made for 30 grand, and boy is it boring. Not only did both the hosts fall asleep during the movie, but Robert had to apologize afterwards for making Herman put up with his nonsense.
Do you have an idea or even want to join the “There Can Be Only One” gang at their next viewing party? Email Robert Rau with your movie suggestion, the days you’re free to watch, and how much beer you can bring.
