America's third political party, the New Founding Fathers of America, comes to power and conducts an experiment: no laws for 12 hours on Staten Island. No one has to stay on the island, but $5,000 is given to anyone who does.
After suspecting that their police officer neighbor is a serial killer, a group of teenage friends spend their summer spying on him and gathering evidence, but as they get closer to discovering the truth, things get dangerous.
Bodies are turning up around the city, each having met a uniquely gruesome demise. As the investigation proceeds, evidence points to one suspect: John Kramer, the man known as Jigsaw, who has been dead for over 10 years.
Callum Keith Rennie

The Strangers: Prey at Night is the sequel to the 2008 horror film, The Strangers. The first film was a home invasion film, and this movie is pretty much the same exact thing, but a lot more over the top. The first film was a slow moving, but only occasionally suspenseful movie and this movie picks up the pace a lot more. Now just because a movie is more fast-paced than the other, it doesn't make it better, but in this case, it does. The first movie did drag quite a bit, and the first time I saw the first, I fell asleep. Don't get me wrong, I like slow-paced, suspense horror films, but the first Strangers movie just didn't do it for me! This movie, however, was never boring! This movie feels like a cheesy 80s slasher movie, and I enjoyed it! This movie has all the cheesy acting, illogical moments, and completely incompetent characters of a slasher movie, and I did find it entertaining! As negative as critics are treating this movie, I do find this movie to be kind of a breath of fresh air compared to most of those supernatural horror films we get all the damn time! There is some neat gore, even though there isn't a big amount of gore, while there is no tension, some scenes do manage to be exciting, and there really isn't a dull moment! Not everybody is going to like this movie, if you are looking for a genuinely great movie with proper character depth, suspense all the way through and Oscar-worthy performances, The Strangers: Prey at Night is not the movie for you! If you want an 80 minute thrill ride that is fun, check it out, you'll be more than satisfied!
