*1/2 out of ****     "The Strangers" is maddeningly un-scary and also unforgivably stupid. It certainly proves that its director, first-timer Bryan Bertino, can direct a movie; but can't tell a gripping story. There are many directors like this; and I applaud him for at least trying to work with his "original" material. This could have made for a pretty tense movie, and the young movie-maker himself had a decent idea going for him. But then again, that is strictly speaking in …

      THE STRANGERS      Now the idea behind this film is really scary especially since it can really happen. In fact it is based on true events or at least something the director experienced or remembered from his childhood. You can say it is a rip off of the film "Them" [really good] all you want but I tend to believe what the director has to say and how he wrote this. This film was based on three different things it seems that lead to the director …

I had a good time with this one and would recommend it. I know that there are those who don't like it as much but I thought it was good. I say check it out because you may like it as well. Does it have problems, maybe, but that didn't hurt the film in my eyes. Rent it and check it out late one night, you may not want to answer the door after that. Based on three different things including a very chilling true crime, check out the review to find out more about that.

Based on the premise and early looks at the trailer, it had the look of yet another "torture porn" story, of which there are already plenty. Fortunately, The Strangers rises above this and sets out to create something far more subtle, but no less gripping.      The Strangers is a no-frills suspense film. The premise is …

After watching the French-horror thriller "THEM" a few months ago, I didn't really have high hopes for this supposed "based" on true events film: "THE STRANGERS". If this isn't a remake, it certainly has strong similarities. (Maybe this was also based on the incident in Romania?) "Them" came out around 2006, if this was written before, what took it so long to be made? The quality of the film doesn't reflect anything special to cause a delay in …
