Storyline

Recently separated from his wife Vera, Félix a young architect, embittered, he finds it difficult to trust again, and being fragile and emotionally unstable, he lives secluded in his now deafeningly silent and vacant house. Unexpectedly, in the middle of the night, a stranger knocks on Félix's door desperately in need of a phone call, and without giving it much thought, hesitantly, he lets him in, however, after a while, when the man is nowhere to be found, paranoia will strike. Has he left or is he still somewhere inside the house hiding? In the following days, as unexplained sounds and strange noises banish the mansion's silence amplifying the tension and the uneasiness, Félix will question his very reason as he will gradually begin hearing and seeing things in the dimly lit corridors. Is the intruder indeed real, or is he a manifestation inside the obscure maze of Félix's mind? Written by Nick Riganas

Artistic and original story reaching the level of fine classic literature! However, NOT horror.
24 November 2012 | by Nitzan HavocSee all my reviews

As a Horror fan, I was fairly disappointed that (yet again) another film was tagged/labeled as Horror when it simply isn't. I don't know how long it will take before it finally sinks in - a Thriller is not Horror. The difference might be less obvious and more subtle and nuance depended than the difference between Comedy and Drama, but it's there!

However, as a films fan and a literature fan, I was very pleasantly surprised. The Uninvited Guest has one of the best script/ideas I've ever seen. The way the protagonist Felix is haunted by the intruder in his house (or maybe just his paranoid thoughts of one?) and then ends up as such in a similar situation himself is artistic and almost genius.

The acting of the main characters is excellent, Andoni Gracia and Monica Lopez have really given lives to the script. The other characters I believe weren't important enough to director/writer Morales vision, they could have been given a little more depth. No harm done though, and the sensations of confusion, discomfort and bizarre anxiety in the audience weren't negatively affected.

The ending had a very nice (if somewhat predictable) twist, and could be understood in more than one way. All in all, while not exactly frightening or horrific, The Uninvited Guest is a clever, original and innovative film. Recommended!
