Title in Japan: The Perfect Host
Director: Nick Tomnay
Starring: Clayne Crawford, David Hyde Pierce, Nathaniel Parker
Year: 2010
Country: USA
Running Time: 94 min

With the cops breathing down his neck, an injured bank robber (Clayne Crawford) charmingly lies his way into the home of a mild-mannered man (David Hyde Pierce) preparing for a dinner party, but before long he’s looking at jail time as a reasonable alternative. This smart, twist-ridden little indie then becomes a tense cat-and-mouse game, with alternating perceptions of who’s the bad guy as writer/director Nick Tomnay tightens the noose. A few too many plot holes, but it earns the appellation “psycho-thriller.” Good to see Pierce, best known as Dr Niles Crane on TV’s Frasier, in perfect, darkly comedic form.
