One of the most terrifying home-invasion horror films of recent history is finally getting a sequel. And now it not only has a new image, but a brand new title.
First off, back in 2008 I went to theaters to see a little known film called The Strangers. It stared Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman as a struggling couple in a vacation home out on its own when they are terrorized by a group of individuals in masks. Roughly based on the Tate Murders of the summer on 1969. It absolutely terrified me. To this day the film is one of my all-time favorite horror films, and has grown as a cult classic of the horror genre.
Now it looks like we are finally getting our sequel to it. Filming began early this year on the project which was known at the time only as The Strangers 2, but now Bloody Disgusting is reporting that the official title for the film will be Strangers: Prey at Night
The synopsis was released earlier this year as production began, and reads as follows:
“A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive.”
Along with the announcement of the new title we were given a look into our first image from the film:
Pretty frightening if you ask me. Strangers: Prey At Night is definitely an early contender for my most anticipated of 2018, as it is set for release on the near 10 year anniversary of the original film, March 9, 2018. Johannes Roberts, the man that brought the most incredible shark film of recent memory, 47 Meters Down, is set to direct. Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) and Bailee Madison (Once Upon a Time) are set to star.
