An Average Movie-Goer’s Review
No Spoilers! If you want spoilers – check out the Spoiler filled post
I love horror movies and if I’m going to watch them anyway, why not write an entertaining/funny review from the point of view of an average movie-goer and not a professional critic?
Today’s movie is the theatrical version of 2008’s The Strangers at a runtime of about 76 minutes (1 hour 16 min) so not long at all.
A couple going through a rough patch, played by Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman, are targeted by a trio of killers while isolated in a cabin.
Is The Strangers Scary?
Wear your brown pants and don’t turn off the lights, this movie is terrifying mainly because of the tension and atmosphere. I turned around to make sure no one was behind me about every 20 minutes. I recommend not watching this movie if you’re stuck in a cabin alone, otherwise enjoy!
If “always go with strangers with candy” is bad advice and “never talk to strangers” is good advice then this movie is “never go to a second location with a stranger.”
This is a great October/Halloween movie, it will definitely scare you without too much gore or blood. It’s a self-contained story with villains that appear to have no motive other than to kill, which is pretty refreshing and terrifying when a movie does it right. Definitely recommend this movie to anyone looking for a good horror movie for the Halloween season.
