‘The Strangers: Prey at Night’ Trailer Knows You’re Alone Now

‘The Strangers: Prey at Night’ Trailer Knows You’re Alone Now

Pigs are flying as Aviron Pictures will release The Strangers: Prey at Night on March 9, 2018.

Way ahead of release, Bloody Disgusting has the first ever teaser from the franchise reboot of Bryan Bertino’s cult classic The Strangers, which is, uh, based on true events? No matter, the trailer is an absolute blast, using Tiffany’s cover of “I Think We’re Alone Now” ironically to boost the fun as the infamous slasher trio of Dollface, Pin-Up Girl, and the Man in the Mask stalk their victims in a mobile home park. Director Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) is proving to have a uniquely talented eye for staging cool sequences as The Strangers: Prey at Night looks downright entertaining, a complete juxtapose of Bertino’s predecessor.

 

In the film, which aims to hit the reboot button…

“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.”

Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, Lewis Pullman and Martin Henderson star, with Emma Bellomy as DOLLFACE, Lea Enslin as PIN-UP GIRL, and Damian Maffei as the MAN IN THE MASK.

Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) directed. Bertino and Ben Ketai wrote the script.

    Yes!!!! Looks great and I love the girl in it.

  • llcc1103

    man… I would fight back and kick the S*& out of these thrill kill psychos. That be a great film.

  • John-Paul

    Come on! That’s Tiffany, not Debbie Gibson.

  • Khy

    Fucking sick! Looks like worth the decade wait!

  • Khy

    Also wonderful poster and tagline. The marketing looks wonderful.

  • Nex

    The Strangers was one of the most terrifying films I’ve ever seen from the last decade next to The Descent. While I have my doubts that this won’t be as scary as the first, I’m still really looking forward to this and hopefully it’ll be worth the long wait!

  • pablitonizer

    Wow, that was fucking amazing!!!!

  • Richard

    Movie looks like alot of fun

  • Jaimie

    FINALLY! looks like a ton of fun.

  • Woow!
    I’m surprised, this teaser looks good, I was expecting something really bad like Piranha 3DD, Wrong Turn 4, 5 and 6 or even Cult of Chucky.

    Btw, I don’t know why but the 80s song reminds me Scream Queens, one of my favorite tv shows ever.

    • Charles Cajigas

      Because it was used during a chase scene on season 2. Thought about that and JAWBREAKER.

  • Barry El Beardo

    Loving the Neon Lights in the swimming pool shot

  • Aaron Johnson

    The original was pretty to look at, but the victims were so damn passive they deserved to die. And their whole evil plan was to tie them to chairs and stab them? I was not a fan. “Them” or “Ils” is a thousand times better. And Tiffany music will never ever be creepy to me. I picture huge bangs and jelly bracelets in the mall. I do wonder about the smiley face thing if they are trying to do something with the smiley face killer.

    • kevinhorror

      The killers did the smiley face on the windows in the first one

    • Biscoito18

      The victims were drunk and they tried to react even using a shotgun, but their reasoning power and movements were compromised.

    • Forca84

      They were written as regular people. Not super Soldiers. I agree with the frustration tho. It’s a bummer of an ending.

      Also…

      *spoilers* I like “Them” also. Two grown adults were literally killed by a group of School kids… That’s ripe for a debate. And Clementine dies in the most cliché way ever… Pulled away screaming. At least they killed one of the little bastards. I would give “Them” a slight edge. But not by much.

      • Aaron Johnson

        I thought the sound design alone was genius. Watch it in pitch black with really good speakers. There’s a show where one of them is chasing the man down the hall and you only see it for a split second. Through the roof every single time.

        • Forca84

          I haven’t watched it in several years. But remember being creeped out by the movie. The parts with the Mom and bratty Daughter and the girl in her way to go out were great.

    • Heather Thompson Schuh

      It’s Red John! LOL. Actually it has been used a lot lately in stuff I agree. What’s that about? In this, AHS: Cult, the Mentalist, and more… Btw Is the Strangers the movie where the woman asks “why us?” and the female killer says “because you were the only ones home” or something to that effect?

      • Aaron Johnson

        “Why are you doing this to us?!!”
        “Because you were home.”

        Yes.

  • Ermilo magana

    i hope is good

  • Simon Allen

    I thought the first was was boring rubbish …..i’m so over home invasion .
    However the Director’s follow up ….The Monster was massively underrated .
    But I really like the job this Director did on 47 Metres down so I will give it a go .

    • Biscoito18

      I adore The Monster. Zoe Kazan delivered an excellent performance.

      • Simon Allen

        Both of the leads were just outstanding .

        • J Jett

          both leads were indeed great but Zoe really took it to another level. she deserves an Oscar nom (in my opinion).

          • Simon Allen

            Hey JJ …..have you seen all of Stranger Things series 2 ?
            I haven’t seen it all yet but there is something i want to ask you …….

          • J Jett

            do you not know who you’re talking to? OF COURSE i watched all of season 2 once the eps were released (i started watching them at 12:00 a.m the night they came out!) LOL. i’m a total nerd like that. 🙂
            and yes, please ask me anything!

          • Simon Allen

            Ok here goes …..SPOILER ALERT for anyone reading who hasn’t seen it .
            I’ve been quite enjoying the new season much to my surprise and then last night along comes episode 7 ….the one where Elle or Jane goes and finds her “sister” WTF ! It was just the worst episode ever , like something from a really bad eighties kids TV show . The characters were so crap, the acting was just terrible compared to the rest of the cast and especially that awful girl who played the “sister”.
            I just sat there thinking …what the hell is this and when are we going back to the the real series ?
            It was as if they had let a bunch of high school kids come in and write and direct an episode for a laugh !
            Especially after the previous episodes tension and the cliffhanger they left it on and from what i could tell (unless i missed something) it added very little to the overall story .
            So i was wondering what you thought ?
            Or maybe i’m just a grumpy old bastard who hates on everything nowaday 🙂 .
            Do let me know ……..

          • Simon Allen

            Hey are not talking to me ?
            Let me know about Stranger Thing !!!!

    • Necro

      ‘The Monster’ was fantastic!

      • Simon Allen

        Wasn’t it though !
        One of the best “creature features ” in forever and such great practical effects .
        It was such a great surprise to me as it had really slipped under my radar .

        • SupernaturalCat

          …and it unexpectedly (for me, anyway) ended up packing an emotional wallop re the mother/daughter subtext/allegory. The Monster is one I definitely need to revisit.

          Agree with you on The Strangers …it was one of those where its predictability actually angered me as I endured it, ha …as we watched it, I turned to my wife and said, watch…they’re gonna end up shooting their friend. And BANG. Ugh

          • Simon Allen

            The Monster in indeed a perfect little movie that succeeds on so many levels and you are right because i was emotionally invested in the characters which is such a rare thing in a horror movie these days .

        • Necro

          Yeah it was! I’m a big ‘creature feature’ fan and that had me pleasantly surprised after watching it. On a bit of a sidenote, that woman (Zoe Kazan I believe) was a terrible mom in that! I mean she was good in the film, just she was a bad mom to her daughter.

          • Simon Allen

            Yeah but she did kind of make up for it 🙂 .
            And it all helped make it that bit more believable the face the they weren’t the Hollywood mom and daughter because lets face it most families are actually quite the trainwreck !

          • Necro

            Yeah she did make up for it though!

    • J Jett

      my god i freaking love THE MONSTER! i’ve watched it many times. Zoe Kazan was amazing in it!

      • Simon Allen

        It’s so amazing isn’t it ……i was wondering if i was alone in my love for it but it’s great to know i’m not .
        When i finished watching it i went on the net straight away to find out who the hell Zoe Kazan was because i was so impressed .

        • J Jett

          no, not at all! in fact i’m going to re-watch it tonight! it’s be my 4th time! 🙂
          i hear Zoe is excellent in THE BIG SICK as well! i’ve been meaning to watch that movie.

  • Forca84

    Not a bad teaser. But it made me hunger for more. (Derp. Obviously the point) Hopefully this one will iron out the kinks from part 1 that people didn’t care for.

  • Biscoito18

    When the music started I just remembered Ginger Minj dancing like crazy and losing her wig.

  • Necro

    Reboot? I thought this was a sequel. Anyway, looks ok for the little bit shown. Liked the first one, but it wasn’t all that.

    • Khy

      It’s a reboot in the sense this is the first film in over a decade and they are looking for this one to be the film that possibly launches future sequels. I’m 100% sure that’s where the “reboot” stuff is coming from. Scream 4, Blair Witch ’16, Jigsaw ect are sequels but also reboots in the sense those franchises had been dead for years.

      Reboot doesn’t always mean remake. I think it would be pretty pointless for them to try to market it as a full on remake considering this film basically follows a simelar set up as the originally planned sequel back in ‘2010 which was about the Strangers targeting a new family anyway.

      • Necro

        Yeah makes sense! Good point Khy. Well there’s so many ‘terms’ thrown around nowadays it’s hard to know sometimes what they mean in a literal sense.

        • Khy

          Oh believe me, I know. That’s how I’m taking it at least. Who knows what these studio thunderheads are truly thinking though lmao.

  • I just really wish they hadn’t used that music. I just don’t feel like this is not the content to attach it to. I obviously see what they were going for with it but it just ends up being distracting. I like pretty much everything else I’m seeing! Hope this isn’t rushed!

    • Forca84

      I get what you mean. But given the context I’d be scared shitless… I loved how in the first film ordinary songs were used with a sinister backdrop.

  • Charles Cajigas

    It’s Tiffany!!!

  • tyler

    In theaters? I’m surprised! Wonder if this will be 5 theaters or nationwide? Or the “In theaters the same day it is released on Netflix or Google for free.” Either way – excited! (Still think they waited way too long to make a sequel to an OK movie though. I can’t see this being relevant to today’s audience to make even a handful of cash)

    • Leonard Vaxine

      It’s in theaters nationwide. It’ll be in around 2,000 theaters.

  • Papa_spoosh

    I’m sorry.. reboot? News to me

    • Necro

      Yep Papa I said the exact same thing in my comment as well!

    • Khy

      Well this is the first one in ten years. So technically it will reboot the series if it does well enough to provide reasoning for future sequels.

      Reboot isn’t always a “remake”. Scream 4 and Jigsaw were “reboots” too. All about jumpstarting the franchise again. Thats how I see it at least.

      • Papa_spoosh

        Yeah well the term reboot is pretty reserved for remakes. It’s to start over, and I see no need for that in this case. I didn’t hear the new blade runner referred to a reboot or curse of chucky or to take it away from the genre, zoolander. I’m just wondering if this report is inaccurate or if not, what’s the point. The way I see it there is no benefit to rebooting in this case

        • Khy

          That’s why I just an spent entire reply explaining to you why that may not be the case.

          But believe whatever you want to believe. Remake, Reboot, Requel, who cares- it looks good.

          • Papa_spoosh

            It does look good, agreed. I never saw scream 4 or jigsaw referred to as reboots.

          • Khy

            Cool story bro.

  • dukeblues

    Nice. Its loosly based on a true story of murders that happened at a California resort in the 70s. Its on wikipedia.

    • Forca84

      It’s not. The Director has confirmed his neighborhood had a bunch of break ins. Someone knocked on his House late at night to see if the House was empty to rob. That’s it. It has nothing to do with the Keddie Cabin murders. The film was inspired by the Manson murders tho.

  • dukeblues

    The original was the best horror movie of the last 10 years IMO.

  • Graham

    Looks kind of silly whereas the original was definitely more serious. But even so, I’m definitely still looking forward to this!

  • Well sign me the fuck up! Does look a little more campier than the first but it definitely has some goregous outside cinematography and dark humor to it. I think thats what this series needs to develop it’s killers fully. Christina Hendricks also looks great and Ill be rooting for the whole family (I found the couple in the first to be unlikable)

  • Demetra

    I like the “indie” feel to the first one. This one feels a little too “Rings” for me.

  • Will Coors

    Hey, it’s a sequel! And it sure as hell looks like a fun one! I’m in! Just better be R

  • Nathan Garcia

    Tiffany, not Debbie Gibson.

  • To me looks like a better film than the first one.

    • Simon Allen

      Minimum effort required there . LOL

      • The first is such a bore. Way too overrated

        • Simon Allen

          You are preachin’ to the choir my friend .

        • Khy

          I enjoyed the first at the time, but I just did a re-watch earlier this year and while I still like it- the characters are so idiotic. Seriously, the writing was a disappointment considering its such a simple concept.

          A random person knocks on your door at 3 AM in the middle of nowhere and you decide this is the perfect time to then leave your girlfriend home alone while you run to the store miles away to pick her up a pack of cigs? Not caring that the person might still be lurking somewhere nearby in the darkness? Oh and she was smoking cigs while he was gone…

          Someone is actively trying to break in and you decide to call your boyfriend instead of 911? Said boyfriend knows someone is trying to break in and chooses to come home without calling 911 either?

          LOL Wut? There’s a lot more things that truly irked me.

          • J Jett

            Khy, i’ve never watched the original film but that (the cigs part) actually happens in it???? ok, i COMPLETELY hate when characters in movies/shows do the most idiotic, unrealistic things in order to move the plot along and it sounds like THE STRANGERS is chock full of things like that. i’m kind of glad i never did watch it. shit like that really ruins most movies (that included writing like that) for me. that being said, this new film looks pretty decent. 🙂

          • Khy

            I still like Strangers but yeah, the writing just wasn’t all there. Felt like it was probably written within an evening and then started shooting the next day without any editing. Too many logical errors. But at the time I didn’t notice any of it because it was so nice to have an original suspenseful slasher that I tuned out the dumb stuff lol.

  • Alanmac

    Looks like fun! That pool scene looks great!!!

  • Khy

    I think the reason why most people took to the original “Strangers” so well back in 2008 was because in a sea of torture porn movies and studio remakes- it felt nice to sit back and relax with a suspenseful slasher that aimed to scare than gross you out. I think that’s why it did as well as it did.

    I also think that “Prey At Night” will have a simelar affect. It’s been supernatural ghost movie after supernatural ghost movie and here comes Strangers to our rescue yet again!

    • Vincent Kane

      Yes. Strangers had so many annoying horror cliches but it was a good whole fashion horror/cat and mouse movie at the right time like you said. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and still do. Can’t wait for the sequel.

    • Saying Like It Is

      Great film yes but you really feel it’s a movie to sit back and relax to?

      • Khy

        Haha. I meant it was a comfort in the sense it put me in the mind of the early days of the original Halloween or the original Friday The 13th. A breath of fresh in the nasty torture days of the late 00s.

        • Saying Like It Is

          Yes, I assumed that’s what you meant but it gave me a chuckle anyway. 🙂

          • Khy

            Lmao 😛

      • Saturn

        Well we all know that Khy likes to get some beers and pizza in and sits back to – ahem – relax to Traces Of Death, so……

        Chortle.

  • Brett

    Love these “true story” designations.
    “Based on a true story” – pretty accurate
    “Based on true events” – serious artistic license
    “Inspired by true events” – complete bullshit

  • Kyle Cole

    Looks awesome!! Can’t wait!

  • Chris

    Once again you people have the wrong info. The song is a cover by Tiffany, not Debbie Gibson. Ughhh.

  • Alex

    Nothing like some classic Tiffany to set the mood for slashin’! I love the use of a fun, bright song against the backdrop for carnage. It’s like when 50’s/60’s doo-wop or Motown jacks up the creep factor of, well, nearly every Stephen King adaptation.

    … and shame on you Brad. You’re certainly old enough to know ITWAN was Tiffany.

    • Saturn

      I always thought it would be the Child’s Play franchise who would use Tiffany’s song at some stage.

  • Dylan Summers

    Oh not Bailee Madison?! She’s so annoying to watch on screen. Her facial expressions are just always so OTT in everything she does!!!

    I’ll check it out because the first film was fantastic but I have a feeling I’m going to be missing Liv Tyler a lot!

    • bluepurplechips

      YES!! I can’t stand Bailee Madison. Super annoying and her overacted facial expressions. She’s irritated me in everything she’s been in.

      • NOCC Monkey

        I had to look her up. Man did she annoy me as the kid in Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark.

  • MaryMaria

    That’s crazy, almost 10 years later and we have the sequel! Really enjoyed the first one, and I’m definitely digging this teaser. Love the use of the song.

  • OMG–the male Stranger is Giovanni Ribisi’s character from Ted!!!!!! LOL

    I’m glad this is finally here. Looking forward to seeing it.

  • festivvl

    I can dig it

  • J Jett

    i hope in this movie the family turns the table on the killers and actually kills them (the killers). i really REALLY don’t want another film where the antagonists get to walk off into the sunset leaving the protagonists dead. but i like what i’m seeing in this teaser even though it’s kind of ridiculous how the killers are able to be everywhere at any time (like Dollface hiding in the tunnel completely surprising the girl protagonist).

    • Saturn

      No doubt we’ll find out that there are more than 3 “strangers” in the new one, so at least one can be killed and new masks can continue the franchise.

  • EmPleH

    I think I might be in the minority here but I think the original song by Tommy James & The Shondells would sound better in the trailer. Still looks interesting though.

    • James Allard

      While I lean toward the slower, darker version of songs for horror films, yeah, the original TJ&tS version is needed here.
      And yeah, looks interesting. Anytime someone is running from death wearing a Ramones shirt… I’m in.

      • Saturn

        I dunno – I always found running towards death wearing a Ramones shirt would be more appealing…..
        “Hey! Ho! – Let’s Go!”

  • Jace Junkerman

    they used the original song in 10 cloverfield lane. This is fine

    • theundead

      You’re joking right?

  • Mike Lawrence

    Looks as good as I hoped it would

  • Joshua Martyniouk

    This looks way better than the first film and that’s a good thing for any horror franchise.
    Really excited to see this!

  • RipleyCroft

    I cannot believe this is happening. 10 years later i thought this would never get made. This looks promising or at least a fun horror to watch.

  • Maxime C

    “Cult classic..
    Franchise”
    Come on, it’s ONE Movie, and it didn’t get that cult thing you pretend it got.

    • Saturn

      I absolutely adored the original Strangers movie!!!

      When it was called ILS……

      • Maxime C

        Hahaha +10, same here.

        • dukeblues

          Its easily the best horror movie in the last 10 years. Hence, its a cult classic

      • REC03

        this comment is amazing!

  • Angela M Campany

    The first one was a classic …..this looks like a worthy sequel too !!

  • dukeblues

    The original was amazing. But they should have called this Strangers 2 and left the Prey at Night subtitle off.

    • theundead

      Um it is 2 not a remake

  • stickytroll

    Bonus points for the Tiffany soundtrack

  • BreeBennett

    Looks better than the first.

  • lonestarr357

    The cover of the song in the 10 Cloverfield Lane trailer was more effective.

    • Scott Baiowulfgang Amadeus

      That’s the original 1966 Tommy James & The Shondells version in Cloverfield.

  • hiiiiii

    cant wait! you dont have to bash the old one to elevate this one. the old one was SO GOOD and unsettling in a way that horror movies weren’t back then and even now…
