    heard it was okay and not scary after the first part of the movie. u know what to expect. and u already know the ending cuz they basically tell you at the beginning so don't expect anything else

    the only a-list actor in this film is the main lead female character played by Liv Tyler. not her best role to date and monotonous at times, but to say the least she does her thing and the resluts are convincing. same goes for the male lead character, pretty much a no-name actor, is believable as the boyfriend who's just been turned down after proposing to his gf during his best friend's wedding reception.

    soon after they return to the bf's father's summer house they are staying for the weekend thats when things turn to the worst for the young couple.

    like i've mentioned, this isnt the most original horror movie outhere, matta fact, its full of cliches, think ; halloween, vacancy, funny games, them..
    but the thing is the director pulled off the cliches nicely with perfect timing.
    its like all the 'oh shit' parts are predictable BUT still it fucking scares you when it occurs.

    story loosely influenced by the tate murders and series of robberies that occured during the directors childhood and heavily influenced by the cinematic atmosphere and suspense of Halloween, The Strangers is a good effort by the newcomer filmaker.

    3.5/5 stars

    I saw thye movie last night. I really thought it was good. it not really scary.
    its a suspenseful movie even though u know the cpuple is going to die, but noone knows how. some people find this movie to be scary. that doll face closet scence was freaky scary. only the mask were scary. if this was a supernatraul type of movie then maybe id be scared. or if that lil lady that knocked on the door head would spin, that would have scared me.


    this movie just reminds that home robbries/ murders can occur.
    it happens possibly everyday. who knows maybe this movie is a scam to buy a gun or get a house alarm.
    if a dude and two chixs tried to kill me. it would hard for them to do.
    id pile drive their asses to hell. hopefully they dont have a gun.
