Filming has officially wrapped on the hotly anticipated Strangers, which was helmed by Johannes Roberts, director of this summer’s excellent 47 Meters Down.

Emmy-nominated Christina Hendricks was cast in the follow-up to Bryan Bertino‘s 2008 slasher, alongside Bailee Madison, who starred in the Guillermo del Toro-produce Don’t Be Afraid of the DarkLewis Pullman (Aftermath), and The Ring‘s Martin Henderson.

As exciting as those names are, us horror fans just wanted to know who would be donning the infamous masks this time around. Bloody Disgusting can exclusively reveal that Emma Bellomy is DOLLFACE, Lea Enslin (“The Walking Dead”) is PIN-UP GIRL, and Damian Maffei (Christmas with the Dead, Ghost Lake) is none other than the MAN IN THE MASK!

In Strangers, 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.



  • Why would knowing what faces are underneath those masks ever help anyone enjoy the movie more?

    • Ryan

      I agree, less is more. More suspense.

    • I’m sure that they’re keep the masks on throughout the film(which is the film’s purpose).

    • Ben Edwards

      Agreed. One of the best things about the original is that you never find out who was behind the masks.

  • Necro

    That for me has got to be one of the creepiest and most sinister lines in a Horror film. “Why are you doing this to us?” “Because you were home.”

  • While I’m not a fan of the first film,but I’m glad to hear that this on-and-off sequel finally completed its filming and is now in the can for a future release(ala the mucho controversial JEEPERS CREEPERS 3),with THE STRANGERS fans now happy to await for its coming.

      Seriously? I thought the original was one of the best suspense horror movies since Halloween. Brilliant use of sound and silence. To each his own though

  • Beatnation

    I wish they announce the damn The Collected already, almost 5 years waiting that trilogy to ends.

  • Tony Harley

    So is Liv Tyler gonna come back at all?

    • Mr. Meeseeks

      why would she? her character is dead.

      • Ben Edwards

        She was alive at the end of the original.

  • Poopispoopy

    Is this movie called Strangers or is this a now normal BD typo?

  • dukeblues

    Did the movie really finish filming? Seems odd….

    When will it be released?

  • Graham

    So is “Strangers” the official title? Because if so, that’s pretty lame. Sequels that simply add or remove a “the” from the title are one of my horror pet peeves.

  • Khy

    Pretty weak title. I can see people confusing it for a remake which may not be good. I sense a ton of “OH MY GAWD Y DID DEY REMAKEZZ IT!” reactions from general audiences coming.

    Should’ve gone for THE STRANGERS 2: Ten fucking years later.

  • Reece Catlin

    hope it gets released this year!
