  • The Strangers: Prey At Night


    OH MY GOD. PERFECTION.

    This movie is so perfect in every aspect. the last 20 minutes are some of the greatest scenes... ever. the songs Total Eclipse of The Heart, and the other one. the villains were so fucking perfect. this is one of the greatest sequels ever, fucking destroys the first, which is great, but this was just, WOW. the music, the atmosphere, all i can say was this was a perfect slasher flick. i feel emotion for the characters.

    buy this movie, support great horror.

    i've watched this 6 times already, i havent loved a movie this much since The Guest.

    My brother watched it and didn't care for it. He said it wasn't very much like the first Strangers (creepy and suspenseful) and more like a generic slasher. He called it "Jason in a trailer park".

    I still really want to see it, though.

      I've never seen the movie.

      I just wanted to say hello and welcome to IamSaw and Wes. I'm glad you guys finally made it over. I look forward to your posts.

        Sorry gotta disagree here.

        This film doesn't deserve 'The Strangers' moniker. Should've left the title at 'Prey At Night' only.

        I like a vintage sounding synthy score as much as the next guy, but something about it here seems forced. And the all too cheeky /ironic 80s songs didn't land with me either.

        I cringed at the angsty teenage girl (Dushku lite) who came complete with the official angsty teen starter pack (Ramones t-shirt, black wristband, and a pack of cigarettes) Other characters were pretty generic too. Shame because I love me some Christina Hendricks. She was wasted here. Didn't care about any of them really.


        Didn't really understand why they had to stop and visit their Aunt & Uncle at a remote trailer park, besides the plot of the movie wanting to involve that setting. Must've tuned that out. Regardless i'm sure the reason was flimsy at best.

        Maybe the water and the car stuff at the end was good enough. Didn't blow me away. It was the highlight of the movie for sure. I'll give it that. Also the lack of sound in certain parts was a nice interesting touch. But other audio like the ear ringing effect is too common these days. Its the more versatile Wilhelm scream of the new millennium I suppose.

        Admittedly I haven't seen the original in almost a decade. Besides people in masks tormenting a family, this film takes a 'Wrong Turn' (OH snap, I'm all bout that Dushku life I guess?)

        ​​​​​​......Worth a rent for morbid curiosity only. Would not watch again.

          HELL YEAH.

          I'm gonna be real. Everybody come in close.

          I might like Prey at Night more than the original Strangers.
