Strangers: Prey at Night Ruins a Family Road Trip in this First Trailer

Tagline: "Never Underestimate the Kindness of Strangers." The first Strangers film was released in 2008. It has been nine years since Bryan Bertino brought the original film to screen. This time, Bertino has scripted an "inspired by" follow-up. As well, Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) has directed this latest feature, in the series. Notably, Christina Hendricks ("Mad Men") and Bailee Madison star. And, the first trailer, for Strangers: Prey at Night, is hosted here - along with the film's early poster. The synopsis mentions a mobile home park and a family road trip. The trailer shows that trailer park, mostly abandoned. Meanwhile, three familiar, masked psychopaths return in this feature. Everyone struggles to survive into the third film. Both The Strangers and this title have been influenced by true events. The "based on a true story" is not just a rubber stamp this time around. The two stories have been drawn from

Horror Spin-Off - First Teaser Trailer for 'The Strangers: Prey at Night'

"Leave us alone!" "But we've just started..." Aviron Pictures has launched the first teaser trailer for a new horror spin-off titled The Strangers: Prey at Night. Instead of actually making a sequel to cult horror hit The Strangers (directed by Bryan Bertino in 2008), they went off and decided to make an "inspired by" film. This one follows a family staying in a secluded mobile home park for a night, who are visited by three masked psychopaths. So the same masked weirdos are back, but a different time/place. The cast includes Christina Hendricks, Martin Henderson, Bailee Madison, & Lewis Pullman. This really does look creepy with a few very scary moments, just not sure if it will bring anything new to the horror/slasher table. Here's the first teaser trailer for Johannes Roberts' The Strangers: Prey at Night, from YouTube: A family's road trip takes a dangerous turn when they

Remember How Terrifying The Strangers Was? Well, the Sequel Is Coming

  • BuzzSugar
A surprising number of people will tell you that The Strangers, a 2008 home invasion horror movie starring Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman, is one of the scariest movies ever. There's something about the terrifying mix of facts that make up the movie: it's loosely based on true events, it's something that can literally happen to anyone, and the killers don't seem to select their victims for any reason other than that they were home. Now, the sequel is coming back for round two. Titled The Strangers: Prey at Night, it looks like our favorite (or most reviled) masked villains are up to their old tricks. Suddenly, "I Think We're Alone Now" by Tiffany is the scariest song ever written. Good luck with your nightmares! Related9 Horror Movies That We're Already Looking Forward to in 2018

The Strangers: Prey At Night trailer

Joseph Baxter Nov 17, 2017

Horror sequel The Strangers: Prey At Night stars Christina Hendricks as a woman whose family is terrorised by masked misfits.

The Strangers arrived in 2008 as an insular, tonally-terrifying, horror film outing, centering on a young couple (Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman,) who are stalked in her remotely-located childhood summer home by three masked assailants. While it divided audiences, the film’s back-to-basics plot on a microscopic $9 million budget proved to be a successful formula, grossing $82.39 million worldwide.

Now, nearly a decade later, after having crossed major dilatory hurdles, the long-awaited sequel, The Strangers: Prey at Night, is nigh.

The Strangers: Prey Tt Night trailer taps the spirit of the original film, expanding its setting to trailer park, where, once again, a family find themselves the fixated target of three masked maniacs. This time, however, the ordeal is suffered by Cindy (Christina Hendricks), husband Luke (Lewis Pullman

‘The Strangers: Prey at Night’ Trailer: Christina Hendricks Gets Terrorized in This Horror Reboot
In 2008, director Brian Bertino released “The Strangers,” a tense horror film starring Scott Speedman and Liv Tyler as a married couple who are terrorized at their vacation home by a pair of masked strangers. The film was inspired in part by the murder of actress Sharon Tate in 1969 by the Manson Family, and also by a series of break-ins that occurred in Bertino’s neighborhood growing up. The film was a box office success, and was also named one of IndieWire’s 20 best horror films of the 21st century.

Nearly a decade later, “The Strangers” is getting a reboot co-written by Bertino and directed by Johannes Roberts, who directed 2017’s highest grossing indie, “47 Meters Down.” According to the synopsis, “The Strangers: Prey at Night” follows a family staying in a secluded mobile home park for the night who are visited by three masked psychopaths.

The masked killers return in teaser for The Strangers: Prey at Night

  • JoBlo
Almost ten years ago, Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman were terrorized by three masked assailants in Bryan Bertino's The Strangers, a horror film which I've always been meaning to watch, but have yet to get around to. Much like my own procrastination regarding the film, it's taken quite some time to get a sequel off the ground, although, The Strangers: Prey At Night is described as being "inspired" by the 2008 film, rather than serving as a direct sequel....

The Strangers: Prey At Night Trailer: Will The Sequel Retain its Early Aughts Era Roots?

A strong first teaser for The Strangers: Prey at Night has landed from Aviron Pictures. 47 Meters Down director, Johannes Roberts, takes the reigns on the loooong promised sequel to Bryan Bertino's seminal home invasion thriller The Strangers which shocked audiences with its bleak and ambiguous vision. Bertino, who most recently directed the criminally underseen The Monster, broke out in the mid 2000's when films like Saw and Hostile were drawing praise and criticism in equal measures for bringing the so-called "torture porn" sub-genre to life. While The Strangers doesn't completely fit that mold, it's impossible to separate the film's commitment to icy, uncompromising terror from the zeitgeist of the time. Ten years on, the horror genre has changed considerably, even gone mainstream since Blumhouse...

Strangers 2: Prey at Night Trailer Is Here and It's Terrifying

  • MovieWeb
It's been nearly a decade since we were introduced to The Strangers and now we finally have our first look at the hotly anticipated Strangers 2. Spoiler alert: it looks even more terrifying than the first one. The brief 1-minute clip hits all of the high notes and reintroduces the masked psychopaths in an intense sneak peek that will make you never hear Tiffany's 80s pop hit "I Think We're Alone Now" the same way again. Despite poor reviews from critics, the first movie went on to make $52 million dollars domestically off of a $9 million-dollar budget and has become a horror classic.

Strangers 2: Prey at Night was initially set to open in December of last year, but that date has obviously come and gone and we're now looking at March of 2018, which is, thankfully, coming right up. Regarding the plot, the official synopsis reads.

The Strangers 2 Gets a New Title and Image

  • Cinelinx
One of the most terrifying home-invasion horror films of recent history is finally getting a sequel. And now it not only has a new image, but a brand new title.

First off, back in 2008 I went to theaters to see a little known film called The Strangers. It stared Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman as a struggling couple in a vacation home out on its own when they are terrorized by a group of individuals in masks. Roughly based on the Tate Murders of the summer on 1969. It absolutely terrified me. To this day the film is one of my all-time favorite horror films, and has grown as a cult classic of the horror genre.

Now it looks like we are finally getting our sequel to it. Filming began early this year on the project which was known at the time only as The Strangers 2, but now Bloody Disgusting is

Here’s Your First Look At The Strangers 2

Ten years is a lifetime in the film industry.

To put that into perspective, the Marvel Cinematic Universe was viewed as little more than wishful thinking back in 2007, when Jon Favreau and the Powers That Be quietly began plotting an Iron Man post-credits scene involving a certain Nick Fury. Twelve months later, Favreau’s standalone pic launched Robert Downey Jr.’s career into the stratosphere and the rest is history. But 2008 also witnessed the release of a lesser-known horror pic. Its name? The Strangers.

Headed up by Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman, the home invasion thriller became something of a cult hit nine years ago and now, after enduring a prolonged spell in pre-production, The Strangers 2 is officially on the cards. Former Mad Men star Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison and Lewis Pullman have all climbed aboard to anchor the horror sequel, while Johannes Roberts of 47 Meters Down fame is at the helm,

How Horror Movie The Strangers Is - and Isn't - Based on a "True Story"

  • BuzzSugar
The 2018 horror movie slate is already building up quite the repertoire. In addition to a fourth Insidious film and an epic Halloween reboot, we're also getting a sequel to 2008's The Strangers. In this next installment, The Strangers 2, another evil trio torments a family in a trailer park. As far as we can tell, it's not based on a true story. Which, actually, brings us back to one of the most contentious facts about the original film. Did you think The Strangers actually happened in real life? After all, the original teaser trailer posited that it was "inspired by true events." Well, we've got some news for you. In 2008, The Strangers, one of the most unsettling movies ever, hit theaters. It wasn't so much that the film, starring Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman, boasted a unique concept; it's your typical, bloody home invasion film. And though it's a decent horror film,

American Horror Story Fans Can't Stop Comparing Season 7 to This Horror Movie

  • BuzzSugar
Image Source: FX American Horror Story just started its seventh season, Cult, and it's wasted no time in scaring the living sh*t out of everyone watching. Killer clowns? Bloody crumpets? Trypophobia? Donald Trump winning the election all over again? Just thinking about the premiere makes us feel sick to our stomachs. While the show is clearly terrifying all on its own, it's hard not to notice some thematic similarities to past horror movies. In addition to season seven's Rosemary's Baby vibes and the connections to Karyn Kusama's The Invitation, the murderous, masked clowns in Cult bear a startling resemblance to the 2008 thriller The Strangers. The film, which is reportedly based on a true story, stars Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman as a couple terrorized by three violent assailants in their isolated vacation home. The masks the home invaders wear aren't overtly clown-ish, but they're still pretty horrific. RelatedThis
