'The Perfect Host' trailer: Do not accept wine from Niles Crane

Based on its trailer, The Perfect Host appears to be one part Funny Games, one part Weekend at Bernie’s, and one part Frasier. And if that description isn’t enough to pull you in, watch the teaser purely for David Hyde Pierce’s hauntingly hysterical portrayal of a twisted man who turns the tables on a bank robber (Clayne Crawford) hiding out at his house by making him the abused subject of an eccentric dinner party. I do not want to know what Pierce’s host is preparing to do with the party’s tossed salad and scrambled eggs. Watch the trailer for the film, out in theaters July 1 and on-demand May 27, below:
