The Strangers (2007)
Starring: Scott Speedman, Liv Tyler
MPAA Rating: R for violence/terror and language
Running Time: 86 Min.
A young couple staying in an isolated vacation home are terrorized by three unknown assailants.
On the way home from a wedding reception, a recently separated couple decides to stay at an isolated family vacation home. Soon after arriving, there's a sudden knock on the door. Which entails a violent invasion by three strangers, all three hidden behind masks. There's no real reason behind why these three masked invaders chose this house. It's like a game to them, first thing they do is haunt their victims before killing them. Surely the couple have to struggle beyond what they are capable of to survive.
This movie isn't for any horror fan, it is a violent, bloody game of cat and mouse. It is said to be a true story, fictionalized for the sake of entertainment. The Strangers isn't a movie I would recommend to just anyone, if you are interested in slasher thrillers based on real life events then pay this one a rent otherwise don't waste your time or money. The acting was well done by Liv Tyler, but I think Scott Speedman's character left plenty of room for improvement.
My Rating: 6/10
