It's Finally Time for a Terrifying Family Trip with 'The Strangers 2'
It's been seven years since the spooky home invasion thriller The Strangers hit theaters, and the long-expected sequel is finally coming together. The Wrap reports The Strangers 2 now has a director in Marcel Langenegger, who directed the thriller Deception starring Hugh Jackman and Ewan McGregor. The story picks up where the first film left off, this time seeing the masked killers (known as Man in the Mask, Pin Up Girl and Dollface) setting their sights on a family whose teenage children have just discovered their recent handy work in a mobile home park run by their uncle. Can this be just as creepy as the first?
Making things complicated, the family discovers these grisly murders as they are taking a final bonding trip before sending their troubled teenage daughter to boarding school. With their aunt and uncle dead, the teens and their parents find themselves fighting to survive the night from The Strangers. There's a part of me that wonders if the troubling daughter will end up turning on her family and joining the killers on their randomized, meaningless killing spree. The script comes from Chosen writer Ben Katai, so hopefully he's done something other than rehash what we've already seen before.
