The Perfect Host Trailer: Who Knew Niles Crane Could Be Such A Delightful Psycho?

Well, this looks like good, twisted fun. Watch it first, if you please:

Now, that trailer doesn’t give you much, but the gist of it is that a bank robber (played by Clayne Crawford) invades the home of David Hyde Pierce’s character, and gets way more than he bargained for. And Pierce looks positively gleefully loony. There’s a second trailer over at Apple (click here) which tells a bit more, and gives away a teeny bit too much, but also is a far more compelling trailer. Choose and perish.

Regardless, I enjoy movies like this, with a wicked sense of humor — or rather a sense of wicked humor, perhaps — that plays on the whole good guy/bad guy dynamic. Also, that features unexpected actors being batshit crazypants.

Also, evil Niles Crane! What’s not to like?
