It’s terrible. The movie itself is a mess. However, it is really funny to watch. And I know horror movies aren’t supposed to necessarily be funny but the entire plot line, the over dramatic acting and just the sheer humanity of the antagonists are hilarious.
The Strangers Prey At Night! Wow this was a huge improvement! Way better than the first movie. Tons more action and definitely way more violent I’d say. I’m not sure what the difference is in the Unrated version, but it was pretty nasty at times! The music was really good too and fit with the movie. You wouldn’t think 80’s music would work, but it does fit really well. The movie feels like a 80’s horror movie slasher throwback too. Good fun sequel, hope to see a 3rd one. I’d definitely recommend to horror fans.
The Strangers: Prey at Night is a surprisingly effective film that overcomes a slow, uninteresting opening act with an intensive, no-holding-back series of violent events. The killers are frightening, silent machines of mayhem, which allows the emphasis to remain on the grotesque violence. It's very atmospheric and smartly scored, too. Don't give up during the first act. The second and third act payoffs are well worth the wait. Universal's Blu-ray is fine, featuring solid enough video under the movie's overwhelming dark constraints, excellent audio, and a handful or throwaway extras. Recommended.
Horror films are hit or miss and I this one certainly captures your attention with the suspense. The features could have been better but at the end of the day it is BluRay and not a UHD. The movie is not a flick you would watch all the time but if your looking for a good quick suspense then I would suggest this one.
Prey at Night is a decent follow up to The Strangers. I adored the first film and it would have been nice to a sequel well before now. Some characters make the customary dumb decisions but the 3 strangers have a much bigger playground to do their damage. I will never listen to Total Eclipse of the Heart the same way again.
