The Strangers Prey at Night is the long-awaited home invasion horror movie sequel that hit theaters back in 2008.
The first Strangers movie was extremely disturbing, this time The Strangers Prey at Night is a bit more Hollywood, but with all the blood, gruesome murders and terror. Read on…
We screened The Strangers Prey at Night and all we can say is the movie holds nothing back from being a classic ranked horror movie. It pulls out all the stops.
It’s the Texas Chainsaw Massacre mixed with a little Jason Voorhees and Michael Myers. In The Strangers Prey at Night, the killers, Pin-Up Girl (Lea Enslin), Dollface (Emma Bellomy) and Man in Mask, who we call Sack Face (Damian Maffei) are merciless killers.
Director Johannes Roberts (48 Meters Down ‘sequel’, The Other Side of the Door, 47 Meters Down) takes the based on true events terror to a mobile home park where the killers go on a murdering spree. From attacks via knife, gun, axe, golf club, baseball bat, fire and truck, the killings are creative like a Friday The 13th movie.
What we didn’t like about the home invasion movie:
We only had a couple issues with The Strangers Prey at Night movie. There are a couple scenes that show us that dumb white girls still haven’t learned what Jordan Peele taught us all last year, “Get Out.” Another issue we had were the scenes where Cindy the mom , played by Christina Hendricks screams “why are you doing this?”
Umm, because they like to kill people!
Besides the cliché lines in the movie, the horror movie kept the scare factor on 100. We would have to thank (Bailee Madison) who plays rebellious daughter Kinsey, who learns all she has is her family. The sad part is she learns the lesson a bit too late as they suffer horrific deaths one by one. After one of the first killings, Bailee is running around the park trying to escape. Meanwhile, her father Mike (Martin Henderson) and brother Luke (Lewis Pullman) try to find her and get the hell out of there, but eerie masked killers are on the attack. . As the bodies count rises, Kinsey and Luke try to fight back, but the “strangers” are everywhere
The Strangers Prey at Night soundtrack features 80s hits by Kim Wilde “Kids In America” and “Cambodia,” Tiffany “I Think were Alone Now,” Bonnie Tyler “Total Eclipse of the Heart” and “It’s a Heartache,” Air Supply “Making Love Out of Nothing At All.” The soundtrack sets the movie in motion as the three killers cause mayhem and kill to 80s tunes.
The movie is Rated R, so we don’t recommend this movie for anyone under 13-years-old. There’s lots of blood and gore and some dead bodies.
