Director Adam WingardYear 2014Genre(s) Thriller
After Caleb Peterson dies whilst fighting on the frontline in the war in Afghanistan, his family back home are overcome with grief. Comfort appears to present itself in the form of a friendly handsome stranger named David, who knocks on the Petersons' door claiming that he fought alongside Caleb, and promised him that he would take care of his family if he should fall. Mrs. Peterson welcomes David with open arms, glad of some respite finally, and while Caleb's brother and sister Anna and Luke are wary of their guest, David's winning smile and unceasing helpfulness soon gains their trust. However, it seems there's more than meets the eye with their visitor, as the family discover how a set of unexplained deaths have been linked to him, and it seems his intentions may not be so honourable after all.
