Returning home from a wedding reception, Kristen McKay (Liv Tyler) and James Hoyt (Scott Speedman) are staying in an isolated vacation house. They soon receive a quite mysterious knock on the door, in the middle of the night by a woman asking for someone they do not know. After this some very odd things begin to happen, Which frighten Kristen, and soon becomes an invasion by three strangers. This couple finds themselves in a brutal struggle for a chance to keep there lives in this night of horror at the vacation house.
The Strangers was by no means in my opinion a very good movie. The acting was not bad, but there is not really anything special to say about it, and I found the story lacking in several ways. To start with, when a movie says that it is "inspired by true events" I have an extremely hard time believing most of the stuff that is happening in the film. So, in that case I have to say that a lot of the things that went on in this movie did not actually happen, in which case I do not see very many reasons why someone should watch this movie. With that said, there actually are a few reasons, especially if you are a horror movie fan. The Strangers has got to be one of the scariest movies I have ever seen. The suspense in this film was built up in such a way that by mid point in this movie you will be absolutely terrified. So if you are looking for a good scare then this is no doubt a movie for you, but if not, Then you probably will not think much of it.
