This weekend a new horror flick will be terrifying audiences when The Strangers: Prey at Night hits movie theaters. The sequel to the 2008 movie, follows with another terrifying home invasion by the sadistic trio of Dollface, Man in the Mask, and Pin-Up Girl.
The Strangers: Prey at Night tells the story of a family’s road trip to a secluded mobile home park where relatives are mysteriously missing. The family of four is soon stalked by the Strangers in an increasingly tense cat and mouse game of terror.
The original film, inspired by true events, saw a couple being tormented by the Strangers at the family’s country cabin. Almost immediately after the 2008 film, talk of a sequel circulated, but several starts and stops kept it from seeing fruition. Now, the sequel is finally hitting theaters on March 9, 2018, starring Christina Hendricks, Martin Henderson, Bailee Madison, Lewis Pullman, Emma Bellomy, Lea Enslin, and Damian Maffei.
The poster for The Strangers: Prey at Night is a simple, unsettling depiction of the trio hands clasped around knives and an axe.
