No Curb Your Enthusiasm fans??

The Uninvited Guest turned out to be a welcome thriller, but not an entirely perfect encounter.

The film revolves around a dude who's having trouble coping with the departure of his wife/girlfriend.

While having these issues one day a man comes to the door and asks to use the phone. Our lead obliges and lets the man come in. When he goes back into the room to check on the invited guest, the room is empty and he can't understand how the man left without making a noise. It then registers that the man may still be in the house. This is when our lead begins hearing noises and his paranoid factor raises to great levels. Is he going mad? Is someone in the house? Should he prepare two plates at dinner time?

The Uninvited Guest, what a great name for a vampire flick. But in this case it's nothing related to the creatures of the night, but more on weirdos who enjoy secretly living in another person's house, which we see during the second half.

At one point, the movie kinda leaves the tension at the back door and goes in a different, more comedic type direction, but by the end of the movie, (darker vibe has returned) the viewer is left with a number of questions. Yet it seems like almost all the questions can be answered. Besides a couple.

I, for one, enjoy films that can bundle up the story and questions and explain it all in a eye-opening manner instead of the "think for yourself" and "no answer is wrong" type of ending. Though I do enjoy films like this, I do appreciate films wrapping up completely a tad more.

The Uninvited Guest is a pretty good flick that should appeal to movie-goers who enjoy these type of films where you're left thinking after the movie ends. If it wasn't for the drastic change of tone and the decision making during the middle, I would have really liked it.

Never mind about it's downfalls though, it's a well-made flick that should definitely have a wider audience.
