Elise got this movie and The Happening in the mail yesterday and had to call me at work to rub it in. In my Netflix "Q", I have "Long wait" on both. So I told Elise to call Tina and see if she wanted to watch either one of them and have Elise come over after I got out of work at 9pm. It was a go! When I got home we put in the movie The Strangers. This movie is the most tension filled movie I have ever watched. As you all may or may not know, tension in a movie is the most important element to me. I LOVE movies that are well written, well acted, and have a ton of tension. This movie was all of the above! It is based on a true story and the crime has not been solved to date. A brief description below:
In this heart-pounding thriller, young suburban couple James (Scott Speedman) and Kristen (Liv Tyler) welcome the peace and quiet of a secluded family vacation home -- that is, until three masked home invaders make them realize how dangerous isolation can be. Written and directed by Bryan Bertino, the film also stars Australian supermodel Gemma Ward, Kip Weeks, Glenn Howerton and Laura Margolis.
This is really a good movie. Chilling, and very much an edge of your seat scare ride. The "strangers" come and go throughout the movie adding to the mental torture of the film. We never see their faces because of the masks they wear. Check out the trailer below...
