The Strangers: Prey At Night finally has a release date and trailer.
The Strangers was a tense and chilling thriller that was a pretty big hit when it hit theaters in 2008. On a budget of $10 million, it went on to gross $52 million. A sequel was inevitable, this is a horror franchise, after all. But this is not that — this is a straight reboot. Original director Bryan Bertino is out, and Johannes Roberts is in. Check out the trailer below:
Great song choice. This one looks a bit more fast-paced and slasher-like than the original. I’m not so sure about that. The first one was a more calm, the story unfolded more than hit you over the head with things.
Summary: A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive.
Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, Lewis Pullman, and Martin Henderson are the family, with Damian Maffei, Lea Enslin, and Emma Bellomy playing the killers Man-in-the-Mask, Pin-Up Girl, and Dollface. The first poster for the film was also revealed by EW.
The official website has some neat things on it as well, like FaceTiming with the killers and such when you enter in your info. I was hoping I would get a creepy phone call or something, but sadly that was not the case. Although when it loads, you are treated to an endless loop of Christina Hendricks shouting “Leave us alone!” over and over. I do appreciate when films and shows go the extra mile and create stuff like that for fans, though. So kudos to them.
The Strangers: Prey at Night hits theaters on March 9th, 2018.
