After returning from a wedding reception, a couple staying in an isolated vacation house receive a knock on the door in the mid-hours of the night. What ensues is a violent invasion by three strangers, their faces hidden behind masks. The couple find themselves in a violent struggle, in which they go beyond what either of them thought capable in order to survive.
I thought this movie was great, because you can picture something like this happening in real life. It’s not your typical horror film where it’s unbelievable. The only down fall to the film was not knowing how the people get access to enter the home. I had to find out by looking at the main movie website and they explained it where the guy accidentally left the key in the door, right before the girl comes to the house.
The movie does start out slow but it sets the mood to where you feel comfortable and you can picture it as your own home. The Strangers has everything you could ever want in a horror movie, such as jump scenes, violence / blood / gore. I actually liked not knowing who the people were because it adds more mystery behind it.
All of the actors played their roles very nicely and I didn’t have any complaints, except for the not knowing about the key part. If you haven’t seen this movie, I would suggest for you to watch it. You’ll enjoy it and it’s very entertaining. Also, you can learn from this film on about trusting people and answering doors. It goes back to how your parents tells you not to open the doors to strangers.
