In 2008, 3 of the most terrifying villains in recent movie history came knocking on the door of a vacation home housing an unsuspecting couple. While the couple, James and Kristen, faced terror on the outside; they also faced personal struggles on the inside. In true horror movie fashion, it wasn’t long before the two merged together to set the stage for a night full of unspeakable torture.
Not only did the couple face torment, they were made to address some tough personal revelations as well, and if that wasn’t hard enough, James ended up killing his friend when he mistakes him for one of the masked intruders. This only leads to more vulnerability which ends up causing more strain to exist between the couple. Unfortunately, that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
The scariest line of the entire film comes towards the end when Kristen asks why the masked intruders are doing this. The reply is haunting.
‘Because you were home.’
After this, the couple is brutally stabbed and the intruders seem to walk away unscathed before running into two young boys delivering religious messages. An exchange takes place between them in which they let the boys know that they sin sometimes, but they don’t show even a hint of remorse.
The film was possibly more successful than anticipated and while a sequel has been talked about since 2008, nothing has ever taken form. That is, until now.
The Strangers 2 has finally been given a green light and it’s being called a sequel, but with an entirely new cast and similar (but seemingly not connected) storyline – it’s sort of a new take on the original. That’s not to say that fans of the first film won’t learn of connections upon watching it, or that we won’t hear about them later on, so for now, we’re keeping our eyes and ears open.
We’re also really excited about the new cast with names like Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, and Lewis Pullman. The plot for the film is as follows thanks to ComingSoon.
‘‘The Strangers 2’ follows a family whose road trip takes a turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park and after the power goes out they decide to hunker down for the night in a borrowed trailer. Under the cover of darkness, three familiar masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test their every limit.’
Production for the film will begin later this month.
