The writer and producer of this movie, must have given up on writing and said F..k it I'll do it for some money this go round. I'm a Avid Slasher/Horror movie fan, I've seen them all, and I mean all, not much on sci-fi horror but slasher is my favorite. When The Strangers the original came out, I was stoked and I was not disappointed, it was new, scary, original, chilling, and slick along with known actors Scott S & Liv T not great actors but you knew who they were. Great horror, killers were silent and evil but in subtle way- the man in the mask is still one of my favorite antagonist, when he shows up in the shadows behind Liv that was a Creepy Epic Scene, but I digress...... Fast forward 10 years and I hear The Strangers PAN is coming out and I thought Brian B waited 10 years to come out with this sequel so it's bound to be the bomb, boy was it and I don't mean the Good Bomb , I mean a dud of a firecracker. How could someone who won awards In the horror genre for his original, ruin well not ruin The Strangers it stands alone as a great movie and then I realized he's burned out and is a one hit wonder who needed some cash. Never have I've been so amped to see a sequel and been so disappointed to actually view it! Why Brian Why?!? But we will always have your hit and one of my favorites, a 3* for the original characters but a minus 7 for the pile of garbage that is Prey at Night.
