The Stranger is one of those movies that I’ve noticed being mentioned throughout social media but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to rent it or buy it. Thankfully Netflix solved that problem for me and streamed it making my life a little bit easier.
A mysterious man arrives in a small American town seeking his wife, though his presence plunges the community into a bloodbath.
When I was talking to a friend about this I couldn’t quite tell him if this was a vampire movie or not. I mean, it is but it’s not really…but it is. In the way that 28 Days/ Week can be a questionable zombie vs virus movie I feel the same way about The Stranger being a questionable vampire movie. But let’s just say that it is. I liked that it was different that way I’ve seen before in other vamp movies. The movie did suffer from dragging a little but in the end I was very satisfied with the overall story.
The Stranger offered an unique view on classic vampire lore which I appreciated so check it out while it’s streaming on Netflix.
