REVIEW: THE STRANGERS
Lock the doors. Assume you're safe.
The horrifying events that took place in the Hoyt family's
vacation home at 1801 Clark Road on February 11, 2005, are
still not entirely known.
Champagne. Rose petals. Candlelight. It was supposed to be a
night of celebration for Kristen McKay (Liv Tyler) and James
Hoyt (Scott Speedman). But after leaving a friend's wedding
reception and returning to the house, everything had
collapsed for the happy couple.
Then came a 4 a.m. knock on the door and a haunting voice.
Is Tamara here?
* Not impressed
* No premise, no rhyme or reason other than “because you
were home” . . . what’s up with that?
* Yes there are some scary moments but the most chilling
moment can be seen by looking at the poster
* Acting was nothing to write home about
o Liv Tyler did a
pretty good job
o Scott Speedman was dry
* Many occurrences in the
story were too convenient
* It seemed unrealistic considering being based on actual
* The cinematography was well done considering limited
location; good lighting effects and camera shots
* Character development is almost non-existent as is the
* The movie starts with showing statistics on random
violent crimes in the U.S. and yet it sensationalizes it;
a little contradictory maybe?
* Childish, non-climactic ending

A pretty big letdown. The
trailer builty it up but the movie shot
To say that The Strangers
sucked would be like saying Hurricane
Katrina was wet... Random reasons for
the killing, stupid ending. "Because you
were home" WTF! Good movie to watch with
friends... if you were a 12 year old!
