It’s been 10 years since we’ve last seen the masked Strangers terrorizing and taunting anyone on screen.
Here we are in 2018, that blonde girl is still looking for Tamara’s house, we don’t know whatever happen to Kristen and we’re getting introduced to a family that is about to get the royal torment treatment.
The Strangers Prey At Night jumps right into the threesome continuing their murdering antics. All these years later they’re still masking it up and murdering it up out there on poor unsuspecting victims.
Next in line is a family planning on taking a mini vacay at a secluded trailer park. They think they’re going to spend the weekend attempting to bond but of course, that gets interrupted when they learn they are not alone.
It seems as though the family stumbled upon the Strangers’ territory which gives the Strangers easy access to new people to target.
Then as I’m sure you know, the jump scares start, then the running and screaming and the blood shed.
So I’m going to take a minute to admit defeat. I did not think I was going to like this movie. Horror sequels tend to have a forced feeling which tends to make me feel like I’m going to see a movie just to get out of the house.
Well folks, The Strangers: Prey at Night won my cold, jaded heart over with exciting anxiety, fun musical choices, and horror homages. Oh let me just tell you about the horror homages (without spoiling it because I’m not a dick like that.)
The homages will make every horror fan smile and maybe even cheer a little (as I did.) All I can think was “This movie was made for me. They were like ‘Nicki, I know you’re sitting there watching this right now and this a shout out to you girl!”
Any minor flaws the movie had was easily overlooked by how much I felt like this movie was honoring the horror genre.
As my first official 2018 horror movie, I started the year out right.
The Strangers Prey At Night hits theaters today. Go see it and tell it I said hi.
Stay Alive and Always Look Behind You!
