TV Review: The Guest
Horror show will make you shiver
By Eliza Rodrigueza
Netflix has a new Korean show called The Guest. It takes place in South Korea and will get you hooked on the very first episode. Of course, that may not happen if you’re not a fan of horror.
Heaven of Horror explains the opening of the show this way: “In episode 1 of The Guest, the three main characters are introduced. First, we meet them as kids as we essentially witness how their lives end up being shaped by brutal events in their childhood.” You soon see them as adults. One is a psychic taxi driver who was born into a long line of shaman, one is a Catholic priest, and the third is a detective who is following in her mother’s footsteps.
Although at first the action and events in The Guest may seem slow moving, the more you watch, the more addicting it becomes. Give episode one about twenty minutes, and then WATCH OUT!
So far, there is only one season on Netflix, but all sixteen episodes contain situations that will leave shivers running down your spine!
Warning: This show is not meant for young children. It contains bloody and terrifying subject matter.
