SYNOPSIS/PLOT The horrifying events that took place in the Hoyt family's vacation home at 1801 Clark Road on Feb. 11, 2005, are still not entirely known. Champagne. Rose petals. Candlelight. It was supposed to be a night of celebration for Kristen McKay and James Hoyt. But, after leaving a friend's wedding reception and returning to the house, everything had collapsed for the happy couple. Then came a 4 a.m. knock on the door and a haunting voice. "Is Tamara here?" "The Strangers" is a terrifying suspense thriller about a couple whose remote getaway becomes a place of terror when masked strangers invade. The confrontation forces Kristen and James to go far beyond what they thought themselves capable of if they hope to survive.
PRO REVIEWS ----------------------------------------
"This is no splatter movie: spare, suspenseful and brilliantly invested in silence, Bryan Bertino's debut feature unfolds in a slow crescendo of intimidation." (Jeannette Catsoulis: The New York Times)
----------------------------------------
"The movie deserves more stars for its bottom-line craft, but all the craft in the world can't redeem its story. (...) Rating: *1/2 (out of four)." (Roger Ebert: Chicago Sun-Times)
----------------------------------------
"It's a fraud from start to finish. (...) Tyler and Speedman, are initially presented as somehow dysfunctional; they mumble morosely and act like they've wandered in from a Bergman movie (...) Like everything else in the movie, this is never explained." (Stephen Hunter: The Washington Post)
