Bryan Bertino‘s The Strangers stirred up a big fuss in the horror community when it came out way back in 2008, but apparently that commotion wasn’t big enough to get a sequel made before its ten year anniversary.
But that’s okay, because 47 Meters Down‘s Johannes Roberts is directing the sequel, titled The Strangers: Prey at Night.
I’ll admit that The Strangers was never my cup of tea. I thought the film was frightening and effective, but nothing cult-status worthy like most have been praising it for.
The fact that the lack of backstory is what was supposed to be so scary about the whole film is also what drove me crazy, because there was no real resolution. A group of randoms simply stalked a couple and murdered them. The end.
Hopefully, the sequel will give us a little bit more. Otherwise, I’ll probably end up just as disappointed.
Are you anticipating this one?
