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

Thrilling enthralling and very twisty
29 January 2009 | by Prof-Hieronymos-GrostSee all my reviews

Felix is an architect reeling from the recent split from his long time girlfriend. Now living alone he in a very large house, he pesters his former lover daily, to come home. One night his door bell rings, Felix jumps up to answer it, hoping its her, but it's a stranger wanting to use his phone, Felix is reluctant to let him use it, but eventually gives in. He leaves the man to have some privacy and goes to his kitchen, where he waits for him to finish, after a short time, Felix returns to the phone to see what's keeping the man…but he's not there. Felix calls out to him, but there is no answer, he checks the house thoroughly thinking the man may have been out to rob him, but again there is no sign of him. Felix locks up the house and retires to bed. He then starts to hear faint noises around the house, could the man be still in the house? Again he finds nothing, this continues for a couple of days until finally he thinks he has cornered the intruder, he calls the police who come immediately and again find nobody. Is there an intruder at all or is Felix going slightly crazy or is there some other reason? The Uninvited Guest touches on a theme that would scare the living daylights out of anybody, an intruder in your own home, the twist here is that its pure mental torture on Felix as he doesn't know for sure that there is someone. The success of a film like this is first of all down to its script and it's a good one, its very clever and delivers plenty of twists in an otherwise simple plot line. The film is actually turned on its head halfway through with one of those clever twists I already mentioned that adds immensely to the thrilling ride, this is one of those films that keeps giving right until the end, I haven't quite analysed all the twists to see if they make any sense, but that doesn't matter as this is a classy enthralling film, one I didn't want to end.
