Fresh off its premiere at the Monaco International Film Festival a new teaser has arrived for Twilight Zone-esque short film Dear Guest. 

Here’s the very simple synopsis:

A couple checks into a vacation rental, only to find that the anonymous host likes to play games on its guests. 

The throwback short film stars Ashley Bell (The Last Exorcism) and Noureen DeWulf (Good Girls) as a couple who soon regrets renting this picturesque home for their long awaited vacation. 
Megan Freels Johnston, best known for her suburban nightmare “The Ice Cream Truck” and her break up film noir “Rebound” directed the short film between feature projects. With all the makings of a modern day Hitchcock film, Dear Guest will play the festival circuit for all of 2020. Johnston though has alluded that this short could evolve into a feature.  Dear Guest was produced by Freels Johnston, Michael May (Auto/Biography), and Bill Whirity (Prey).

Here’s a trailer:
