Downton Abbey‘s Dan Stevens trades in English gentility for all-American menace as a polite and eerily self-possessed houseguest who, if the ominous score is to be trusted, might not be everything he says he is. Director Adam Wingard’s follow-up to the 2011 horror flick You’re Next is similarly sure-footed and sleek, shrink-wrapped in a genre-aware cleverness and preapproved for cult status. The coat of irony helps when the film takes a major pivot in tone, and Stevens is unnervingly placid as the corn-fed terminator. B+
