The Perfect Host Website
There’s a fine line between thrillers and pure horror projects, but when a film sounds like as much fun as The Perfect Host debuting this month from Magnolia Pictures, we’re willing to cross it just to make sure our readers are aware of all their options.
Available On Demand everywhere since May 27th and hitting theatres in New York and Los Angeles on July 1st is writer/director Nick Tomnay’s The Perfect Host, which stars David Hyde Pierce, Clayne Crawford, Nathaniel Parker, Megahn Perry, and pop singer Helen Reddy(!). It’ll then be available on DVD/Blu-ray on August 30th.
A criminal on the run cons his way into the wrong dinner party where the host is anything but ordinary.
John Taylor (Clayne Crawford) has just robbed a bank. He planned and executed it perfectly. It comes as a shock to him then when he discovers the robbery is all over the news and he has been identified as the perp. Injured from the robbery and now in a car known to the cops, John has a problem: He must ditch the vehicle and get off the streets.
Warwick Wilson (David Hyde Pierce) has showered, shaved, and is in the middle of preparing the dinner party that he will be hosting that evening. Warwick is a little surprised when the intercom of his slick Los Angeles home buzzes. The man on the intercom screen introduces himself as John, a friend of a friend and in need of a favor.
Warwick, who prides himself on being a perfect host, decides to take a chance and invites John in. As the night progresses, neither man can conceal his true nature. What was assumed is turned upside down.
Check out the trailer and poster art below and see if you don’t agree that The Perfect Host looks like the perfect way to see “Dr. Niles Crane” flirt with some genre-tinged mayhem. For more info “like” The Perfect Host on Facebook.

- Nick Greeley Nice clickbait. It’s OLD news that H20 started as a passion project for her, but everything fell apart when Carpenter and Hill didn’t come back, and Moustapha Akkad refused to let the writers kill...

- One-Eye I remember it as being one of the better post SCREAM slasher movies. I certainly haven't watched it since then.
