Storyline

What if ... you let a stranger into your house to use your phone, but while you've been patiently waiting in the kitchen, he just disappears ... or does he? Félix, an architect who has just split up with his girl-friend and inhabits a huge mansion in Barcelona, finds out how many hiding places there really are in his house. But are there enough to hide another person, a strange parasite of living space? Or is Félix really going insane? Written by sweet.smartie

Brilliant Film!
17 September 2012 | by (Saudi Arabia) – See all my reviews

"The Uninvited Guest" is a psychological horror about a man letting a stranger into his house to make an urgent phone call in the middle of the night. While the man of the house patiently waiting -in the kitchen- for the stranger to finish his call, the stranger suddenly disappears! but the man believes that the stranger is still in the house. Unable to differentiate between what is true and what is not, the man starts hearing strange noises and acting crazy. Did the stranger let himself out after he finished the phone call? Or is he really hiding in the house? Is the man of the house going insane? Or are these hallucinations true?

It's definitely one of the best films I've seen from the last decade. The plot is intriguing, The acting is superb and the directing is brilliant. It is a very clever film and it will deceive you in almost every scene. If you like this kind of psychological horrors/thrillers, you will love this one!
