Critic Consensus: The Strangers provides a few scares, but offers little else to distinguish itself from other slasher films.

The horrifying events that took place in the Hoyt family's vacation home at 1801 Clark Road on Feb. 11, 2005, are still not entirely known. Champagne. Rose petals. Candlelight. It was supposed to be a night of celebration for Kristen McKay and James Hoyt. 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?" "The Strangers" is a terrifying suspense thriller about a couple whose remote getaway becomes a place of terror when masked strangers invade. The confrontation forces Kristen and James to go far beyond what they think themselves capable of if they hope to survive. … More

Critic Reviews for The Strangers
The Strangers has a couple of scares, but it's not anywhere near as frightening as advertised. The creepy folks of the title are more fumbling than fiendish.
But I guess it's just hard for a movie about characters with bags on their heads to have any real teeth.
Just get comfortable, sit back and smile at the slaughter - unlike Funny Games, at least this is bloodshed you can enjoy.
Writer-director Bertino just wants to scare our pants off, and succeeds admirably.
There?s no better feet-on-the-seat execution for the home-invasion genre than this. "The Strangers" twists the knife with scenes lasting a beat longer than normal to maximize dread and sound design excavating a hole in your cortex and nestling there.
Audience Reviews for The Strangers
Pretty creepy movie but watch the movie Them (ills) for a better version. I like it but just really could have been better.
An inconceivably horrid display of sadism with a level of stupidity that I hardly remember having seen before (I wanted to punch Bertino in the face for raping my brains with this crap), relying on two characters who seem to be competing for most shockingly stupid of all time. (Zero stars)
Horror elements work and it effectively relies on a super slim story. Other then that, this film becomes frustrating
