AJ’s 31 Days of Horror Movies: “The Strangers”
It's terrifying because there's absolutely NO REASON for it, according to the killers.
2008's The Strangers got mixed reviews when it was released; a lot of people said that it offered a few scares but it was nothing more than a slasher movie. I'd like to politely disagree.
Liv Tyler as Kristen: "Why are you doing this to us?"
Killer: "Because you were home."
This movie will prey on your psychological fears, your claustrophobia and your fear of strangers, hence the name. You spend the entire film wondering what YOU would do next if you were in that situation.
Enjoy, fellow horror movie fans!
