In this world of uncertainty, there are some things in life we know to be true, and some pieces of age-old advice that we should all heed. When you live in the middle of nowhere, never, never answer the door for Strangers.
The Strangers: Prey at Night dropped their first teaser, and naturally Bloody Disgusting was right on top of it. The trailer has been watched, my curiosity has been stoked and I’m ready for the release of Strangers 2.
I’ll be honest, this second installment has me stoked but nervous! The original Strangers, released in 2008 meant a lot to me. I saw it in theaters 3 times! That’s a big deal for me. Strangers had its flaws and I was originally going to make this a review on the first film and use catchy phrases on twitter like “It’s time we talked about Strangers” or “Tamara can never come out to play” and use hashtags like #strangerdanger… Now that I see them in front of me, they’re not all that clever.
The point is that Strangers rocked my world primarily because it was the first movie that I got cuddly with the luckiest girl in the world who is now my wife. If you don’t know my wife, she’s not super stoked on horror. It’s lead to movie night arguments, conversations over what is and is not appropriate to wear on a tee shirt in front of our kids, and the list goes on. My point is that I view it as a symbol of how much my wife loves me! I’ll admit, this has nothing to do with the actual film…
If you happen to be a horror fan or just enjoy a good Home-Invasion story that may or may not be based on true events, Strangers is very much worth the watch. Throughout the entire movie, Bryan Bertino nailed an ominous tone that so many directors strive for. The “safest” of scenes were still filled with dread for what was to come. It’s terrifying and fun in all the right ways. Sit on your couch and get caught up, then join Tamara and I in theaters on March 9th, 2018 to watch The Strangers: Prey at Night.
