4.0 out of 5 stars Well made, but ultimately empty Jan. 25 2014
By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I lie between those who see this as a masterpiece, and those who see it as en empty exercise in clichéd sadism. On the one side, the film is very well made and effective. The cinematography, the acting, the editing, the score and direction work together to create a lot of truly creepy uncomfortable suspense, without resorting to too much gore, especially in the film's first half.

On the other hand, it lacks any thematic core (as opposed to, for example "Territories" a recent low budget horror film that also managed to raise questions about political prisoners and xenophobic paranoia). It also lacks any psychological insight although the first half hints that might be where the film is going. But these horrific intruders aren't ultimately reflections of the main characters inner lives, or a comment on their emotional struggles. They're just generic, unexplained evil. The film does a good job of evoking a nightmare, but by not aiming higher misses the chance to be something more special than an effective scare machine.

2.0 out of 5 stars Contrived... June 2 2009
By Martin A Hogan TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Liv Tyler ("Lord of the Rings", "Jersey Girl") and Scott Speedman ("Underworld") play a couple with a dissolving relationship spending the night in a vacation home. Claiming to be `inspired by true events', it's not difficult to believe. The story is a rehash of possibly every slasher film from the seventies. The real star here is the sound effects. The viewer is initially spooked by loud knockings on doors and other things that `go bump in the night'. After ten minutes, it becomes wearisome and nearly the entire film is a series of sound effects to fill in the voids. This is particularly annoying if you have surround sound.

The plot is remarkably static and contrived. A portly man and two women wearing masks besiege the couple throughout the night. They appear and disappear, seeming to just enjoy terrorizing the couple. But this couple does all the typical `do not go there' and `do not do that' stuff you've seen before. Why would the guy leave his girlfriend alone in the house to get cigarettes with this going on? Why would the gal leave the house and run in the dark to the barn to try and make a call? How could the guy claim to not know how to work a shotgun and then make a pinpoint perfect hit? Thankfully, director Bryan Bertino keeps the gore to a minimum until the end. However, even that has been done before. If you remember the end of "Carrie", you won't be shocked like you supposed to be. Thankfully, this film is only 86 minutes long.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Strangers Nov. 5 2008
By Tommy Skylar TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
"The Strangers" seemed like a good horror movie when I first saw the trailers,however I didn't get to see it in theatres.Instead I rented it on DVD recently,and I have to say that I expected something totally different.I really tought there was a story,but after watching it I realize that there is no story at all,it's just a couple being attacked by strangers,sure there is enough with that idea to make tons of movie but this one just didn't make anything of it,it's like it just stops there.The idea sounds good on paper but what's been done with it is just plain awfull.What could have been a great movie has been ruined by so many things.I should have known better,it was supposed to be released in mid-2007 and it got delayed twice.

The movie starts with the writtings on the screen : "What you are about to see is inspired by true events. According to the F.B.I. there are an estimated 1.4 million violent crimes in America each year. On the night of February 11, 2005 Kristen McKay and James Hoyt went to a friend's wedding reception and then returned to the Hoyt family's summer home. The brutal events that took place there are still not entirely known".Then the movie starts with a kid calling 9-1-1 saying he's in danger,afterwards the movie shifts to what happened before.Kristen and James are at their summer home after Kristen refused James's proposal.It's dark,they're talking and they hear loud knocks on the door...

The fact that it mentions it was inspired by "real" events when it's not really the case.Director Bryan Bertino said that the event that inspired the movie was when someone came knocking at his door when he was young and asked for someone who didn't live there,the neighberhood's empty houses have been vandalized.That's the real part of it.
