Manufacturer Description

Explore your worst fears possible with this stunning suspense thriller inspired by disturbing true conventions. After a 4 a.m. knock at the door and a haunting voice, Kristen McKay (Liv Tyler) and James Hoyt's (Scott Speedman) remote vacation becomes a psychological night of horror as 3 masked unfamiliar people attack. Now they should go far beyond what they believed themselves capable of if they intend to survive.A lean, briskly paced and exceptionally creepy thriller, The Strangers makes its scares the old-fashioned method: through environment, sound design, and an easy yet undoubtedly upsetting main facility that enables maximum tension throughout its running time. Appealing young lovers Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman are already having a bad day-- she's rejected his marriage proposition-- before a knock on the door in the middle of the night reveals a full-fledged siege on their remote villa by a trio of masked enemies. The movie's first third delivers the most consistent shivers as the visitors make their presence and objectives known to Tyler; the second half grows more frenzied and bloody before a gruesome finale that may leave viewers either rattled to their core or bothered by its empty nihilism. Speedman is fine as the downtrodden male lead(who's seen tucking into a container of ice cream after being rejected), however it's Tyler who impresses the most by shouldering the lion's share of the horror. Novice writer/director Bryan Bertino impresses by forsaking the present enthusiasm for over-the-top violence (conserve for the finale)in favor of more traditional ways of generating worry, and if his task obtains heavily from other films, most especially the French chiller Them (which shares its"inspired by a true story "origin )and Michael Haneke's Funny Games, a minimum of he's extracting from the best. The sound design is amongst the numerous technical standouts, and the unsettling score by tomandandy(The Hills Have Eyes )pleasantly stimulates Ennio Morricone's fuzztone-heavy work for Dario Argento in the early '70s. On an entirely unassociated note, LP fanatics must value how both the movie's heroes and villains share an affinity for folk and c and w on vinyl.-- Paul Gaita
