More than perhaps any other genre in Hollywood, horror movies have a tendency to eat themselves. The genre is packed with the originality of films like Get Out and It Follows, but it also trades heavily in sequels, remakes and reboots. It’s in that arena that we get The Strangers: Prey at Night, which manages to be a sequel, a remake and a reboot of the 2008 original movie all at once.
Original writer-director Bryan Bertino is back, but only on scripting duties alongside Ben Ketai, who made the surprisingly good claustrophobic horror Beneath a few years ago.
