The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018)



Critic Consensus: The Strangers: Prey at Night may appeal to fans of the original who've been jonesing for a sequel, but its thin story and ironic embrace of genre tropes add up to a bloody step back.

Critic Reviews for The Strangers: Prey At Night

All Critics (95) | Top Critics (18)

In a moment when horror movies like Get Out and the forthcoming Hereditary earn praise for their adventurousness, these retro scares feel especially out of touch.

April 25, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Has a slow and rather grim first half, but then, in the home stretch, takes a welcome turn into the seriously silly.

March 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Two films in, The Strangers has already become a horribly familiar franchise.

March 9, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

An unexpected anomaly-a sequel that both is better than and fixes the problems of its predecessor.

March 9, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Though it's as slim and poorly balanced as a cheap knife, "The Strangers: Prey at Night" is a stylish 1980s throwback that packs plenty of terror into its short running time.

March 8, 2018 | Full Review…

It would have helped immensely to have actors who could make us care about the awful things happening, but one really can't blame any of them.

Audience Reviews for The Strangers: Prey At Night


The rare sequel that surpasses its predecessor on every level. If you can make it past the dull character development, the utter mayhem that follows is infinitely rewarding. The terrifying "Total Eclipse of the Heart" sequence alone will make this worth your time.
