This had some good thrills and was done quite plausibly.

No I have never been home invaded so I can only speculate on how terrifying it must be. The problem is the invaders are presumed to be somewhat supernatural supermen in the minds of the homeowners.

The invaders are ordinary mortals and their element of surprise has long since passed and as far as we can tell they have no weapons except a small axe. We have a shotgun.

The acting was well done and the irrational actions of the (scared) homeowners are portrayed realistically. The girl screams a lot.

Have a seat on the couch in the middle of the house with your shotgun and wait for them to come in and blast away. Of course we would have run over one in the driveway earlier.

Yes, the homeowners do some dumb things in their scared state. We can only presume the difficulty to think clearly in this situation.

Worth a look with some good creep value.

Stylish, creepy, and ever effective
N. Durham | Philadelphia, PA | 01/20/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Mainstream horror movies these days fall into two categories: tame and lifeless PG-13 ghost stories (most of which are remakes) or scareless torture-laden exercises in sadism. The Strangers thankfully falls into neither category, taking the best parts of what really makes a horror movie a horror movie; The Strangers stars Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman as a couple with some troubles spending the night in an isolated cabin after a wedding. Things start to get rather creepy however when three masked assailants make their presence known, violently escalating towards a riveting, frightening, and incredibly unsettling climax. Director Bryan Birtino mixes old school fright elements with an unnerving score, adding to the uber-creepy atmosphere, and Tyler and Speedman are surprisingly impressive as well in the leads. All in all, The Strangers is a stylish, creepy, and ultra effective thriller/horror movie that deserves your attention, and should be by all means given a look by any and every horror fan."
Strangely Entertaining!

(4 out of 5 stars)

"This film has some very creepy elements. The idea of a couple being randomly stalked by masked thrill-killers in a secluded home just screams horror! And the fact that it seems so random makes it all the more unnerving. Liv Tyler does a good turn as the female lead. And the behind-the-scenes feature is worth a look. All in all, not a bad flick to watch on an eerily quiet evening."
Sent chills down my spine...

"I've only been scared by two movies in my lifetime... "The Exorcist" and "The Strangers."

A couple scenes were predictable but I still nearly jumped off the couch.

I highly recommend this "terror" film."
