5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Dark Brooding and Funny Aug. 10 2013
By Tommy Dooley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Bank Robber John Taylor (Clayne Crawford `The Baytown Outlaws' and `24') has done a heist at his girlfriend's bank, during the job he gets injured. After realising `the feds' are on to him, he seeks refuge by going to ground. After initial lack of success he rings the doorbell of seemingly nice if slightly anal type in Warwick Wilson (David Hyde-Pierce `Frasier's brother). After spinning a convoluted story of being mugged and knowing a mutual friend, he is admitted to the home of Warwick.

Warwick is expecting guests for a dinner party of perfectly cooked and presented roast duck with all the most fashionable trimmings. However, it is not long before his inquisitiveness coupled with Taylor's lack of panache start to reveal his true motives. What unfurls is a deliciously dark story of hidden desires, warped minds petulant double crosses and plot twists from plot twist Nirvana.

To say any more is trespassing in the area of plot spoiling so I will desist. This though was just broodingly sinister in places full of dark humour with David Hyde-Pierce acting himself out of the ball park in a bravura performance of the completely over the top, host. There is even a superbly camp dance routine to Rose Royce's seventies disco hit - `Car wash' - marvellous.

As you can tell I ruddy loved this; it insinuates itself into your mind for an illuminating 94 minutes and left me wanting more, it was simply effortlessly brilliant. This is one of those films that had passed me by but is one that should have garnered a whole lot more attention; there is a cameo by Helen Reddy too. So for a gripping, original, funny and supremely dark piece of cinema this one should fit the bill perfectly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Waste of good time and money June 7 2013

I am a huge fan of David Hyde Pierce. I was sooooooooooooooo disappointed with this movie. No recommendation from me.
He should never have made it it spoiled his image as far as I am concerned.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bizarre and Oddly Hysterical Sept. 27 2011
By Lawrence J. Ukolowicz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I think I am still in shock over this one. David Hyde Pierce is astounding in this very unorthodox role of madness. This movie is so psychotically delicious, it borders on "The Twilight Zone" meets "Sybil". I found myself laughing out of total fear of the incredulousness and depravity of the host. I did NOT see the ending coming or even imagine it to end the way it did. The movie works on several levels, from the civility of human compassion to the intrinsically evil darkness of insanity. This movie is a must see for those looking for just plain "bizarre". This one had me thinking about it several days after watching it and when a movie does that to me, then my appetite for wanting 'something different in a movie' is complete. Get ready for one heck of an emotional roller coaster ride. Mr. Pierce, WOW.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful, crazy-weird movie- DHP is great as always July 2 2011
By PAOPAO - Published on Amazon.com

This movie will never, ever play anywhere near me, so I was pretty excited to see that Amazon had it available for download at the same time it is being released in the theatre.
It did not disappoint. It's a very character-driven suspense story. Even if you figure out the first couple twists, you won't guess them all. This movie does not contain a lot of graphic violence; very important if you are like me and don't have a high tolerance for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Host-not a comedy-strange but enjoyable. Oct. 18 2011
By Jose Lopez - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I am not a fan of Strange movies but The Perfect Host with it's surprising twist and ending which you could have not seen coming seems to be a must watch just for the story alone and why Looks can be deceiving,a Victim turns the tables and it is one long strange and at times amusingly funny but yet sad situation after another.I highly recommend it,In the End,it is the most enjoyable and not sickening at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Low budget-limited release-but w/twists to keep you on your toes Oct. 18 2011
By TJ-STL - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Anyone could logically give this movie one star or five. It was a low budget limited release movie that came out in video at about the same time. The character Warrick played by David Pierce fits the part just right. And paraphrasing one reviewer, who stated; "you might guess one or two of the twists but you will NOT guess them all or the ending". The acting and the story would fit a Hitchcock movie or be labeled as a dark mystery or even as a dark comedy but it keeps the viewer wondering what is going to happen next, or who Warrick really is! I watched in on Netflix and might have bought it but nobody around me had the video. LOOK FOR IT AND WATCH IT!
