Bitterly disappointing

After hearing from a few people that 'The Strangers' was a must-see for horror fans such as myself, I decided to give it a go. Although the beginning was somewhat promising it quickly fell flat.

I think the fear of being home alone and having someone break in is a very common one that we all experience on a regular basis. For that reason this movie does a good job at ramping up the initial tension and fear at the beginning. However, there is very little going on throughout the movie to hold the viewers attention and after half an hour or so I stopped paying attention to what was going on because I was bored.

The worst part of the movie is that at the end the victim asks the mysterious masked killers why they're doing what they're doing and their response is, "Because you were in." At that point I'd completely lost all respect for what the movie was. The only appeal left in the movie after watching two people fumble around in a big house for an hour and a half trying to evade a violent death, was that perhaps there was going to be an interesting twist. To learn at the end that what happened only happened because the couple happened to be at home is beyond ridiculous and made me feel completely cheated.

Though the idea behind 'The Strangers' has potential as it plays on a very common fear we all share of being targeted in our own homes, the way in which its written is uninventive and unrewarding.

If this movie made a few changes it could've earned a 6, 7 or maybe even an 8 star rating. All it needed was more focus on the characters, a deeper back-story and for the killers to be connected to the main characters in some way and therefore had motive for their actions. But in failing to do these things, unfortunately, 'The Strangers' is utterly forgettable.

Suspenseful But Fails on Other Aspects

It's wrong for me to watch this at night with the lights off and the windows open. The story is frightening, mainly because the story is realistic. It's one of human's biggest fears: to be invaded. That's why locks are invented.

The story starts uninteresting. After a wedding reception they attended, a beautiful couple goes home, located at the middle of nowhere. Some dialogues here and there, flashbacks on why they're both upset. And then the tension starts with a knock, Liv Tyler's character is alone, she's vulnerable and frightened. You can feel the suspense, the tension, your heart racing because of the unknown.

That's it, it's pretty suspenseful, really. On other aspects, this film is average. The characterization is not very good, but then, in movies like this, the filmmakers do not give much thought about characters as they focus more on the suspense and frightening parts. The story is too simple and quite unimaginative. Yes, it's suspenseful, especially at the beginning. But that's it. No "I didn't see that coming" moments. There are also overused elements in horror films that are used here, especially at the climax scenes, making the movie quite predictable and tiresome at some parts. The ending is not very good.

Well, I can say that The Strangers did not fail to terrify me, at least for a while. But it's not really a memorable one. Try watching this in the dark at 2 am.

No Cabin For Me

A little slow at times but overall pretty creepy. And I will make sure to never stay in a cabin in the middle of nowhere...
