THE STRANGERS: PREY AT NIGHT Trailer: The Horror Sequel You Didn’t Know You Wanted

The Strangers was a fantastic home invasion horror back in 2008. Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman played a young couple terrorized by masked, basically silent murderers. It was a great exercise in atmosphere and chilling inevitability. The Strangers: Prey at Night is the sequel we never knew we wanted.

The world in this sequel looks to be more open, less claustrophobic, and I’m not sure if that’s the best thing. See for yourself:

A chunk this takes place in a mobile home park, which would explain the pool scene and the more expansive story. Hopefully it doesn’t veer into Jason Voorhees territory with the camp-like setup. The single-setting home was, of course, one of the best parts of the first film; this sequel appears to be doing what so many sequels do – going bigger – so we’ll see if that pays off.

Director Brian Bertino is back as the screenwriter, and 47 Meters Down director Johannes Roberts is taking the reins. This sounds okay with me.

The Strangers: Prey At Night stars an understandable list of unknowns, except Christina Hendricks who’s the headliner. It opens March 9.
