The Perfect Host plays out like a two-man stage show. Its new take on the home invasion premise with a wanted fugitive intruding on a man who lives alone in a wealthy suburban home. That man is played by David Hyde Pierce who turns out to be a psychotic maniac with multiple personalities. The film is rough around the edges, the music is woeful and the finale is really sloppy but Hyde Pierce gives the performance of his careers as the psycho. He well and truly breaks free of his Niles Crane (Frasier) persona and you can tell he's finding the new role liberating. He relishes every moment and one particular dance sequence really steals the show. Yeah, its kind of a dud but I'm really glad I got to see such a wicked performance. Worth it for that alone.
