Story


Lock the door. Pretend you're safe.

The brutal events that took place in the Hoyt family's vacation home on the night of February 11, 2005, are still not entirely known.

Champagne. Rose petals. Candlelight. It was supposed to be a night of celebration for Kristen McKay (Liv Tyler) and James Hoyt (Scott Speedman) at his family's secluded vacation home. But after leaving a friend's wedding reception and returning to the house, everything had changed for Kristen and James.

And then came the knock at the front door.

Is Tamara at home?

Writer/director Bryan Bertino explores our most universal and human fears in The Strangers, a horrifying suspense thriller about a couple who are targeted by three dangerous masked strangers. The resulting clashes force Kristen and James to go well beyond what they thought themselves capable of in order to survive.
