The Strangers: Prey at Night (2018, D: Johannes Roberts) S: Christina Hendricks

Berlin: Johannes Roberts to Direct 'The Strangers' Sequel

'The Other Side of the Door' director will head the follow-up to the 2008 horror film penned by the original's writer/director Bryan Bertino and is scheduled to begin shooting this summer.

BLOOM has taken international rights to The Strangers 2, the sequel to the 2008 horror hit starring Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman, which grossed over $82 million worldwide.

Indie horror director Johannes Roberts will helm the sequel while Bryan Bertino, who wrote and directed the original film, will pen the script with The Forest screenwriter Ben Ketai.

The film will be produced by The Fyzz Facility Pictures, which recently produced Martin Scorsese's Silence, in association with Relativity Media. BLOOM will be handling international sales at the European Film Market in Berlin.

The Strangers 2 follows a family whose road trip takes a turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park and after the power goes out they decide to hunker down for the night in a borrowed trailer. Under the cover of darkness three familiar masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test their every limit. The US-based shoot is scheduled to begin this summer.

The first one was quite unnerving. It did fairly well at the box office and I've wondered why it never got a sequel made sooner.

I agree. Not too sure about the director, though Other Side of the Door was a product of a bad script rather than bad direction...

The Fyzz Facility Pictures’ Wayne Marc Godfrey (Wind River), Robert Jones (Centurion), Mark Lane & James Harris (47 Meters Down) are producing, in association with Relativity Media. The Fyzz Facility are serves financiers on the project. Aviron already was announced as the North American distributor.

I guess I never thought the first one needed another one. Cast is low rent enough...

A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive. Johannes Roberts directs this horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit THE STRANGERS.

Looks kind of derivative (I know, it's very difficult for a horror sequel not to be), but the use Tiffany's "I Think We're Alone Now" was a cool choice.

Looks good. I thought the first one was great and it was an un-official remake of the French film "Ils" aka "Them."

I saw Black Panther last night and they played this in front of it -- it was funny, because there were tons of kids at the showing and it's a pretty intense trailer.

Seeing this tomorrow night. It's rated R, too. I think the first one was PG-13 but then they released the Unrated cut on home media.

The 1st Strangers movie was Rated R

I might see this on Friday.

I want to get the new Strangers Shout Factory BD as well as I only have a used copy of the DVD. But, it's way too expensive right now: $25.70, so I'm going to wait.

This one? It was Universal that put it out back in 2008.


The new Shout Factory set as a new HD 2K transfer of both cuts.

Oh that's right. I will probably upgrade to that SF release once the price goes down.

All I remember about the first one is a lot of banging on doors... too reliant on jump scares. And finding weird to see Dennis Reynold pop up. Didn’t think much of it at the time. Maybe due for a revisit.

This will probably be crap. First was a so-so semi-remake of the much better Ils. Why even make this?

As with most horror movies, small budget and hopes of decent profit.

Re: The Strangers: Prey at Night (2018, D: Johannes Roberts) S: Christina Hendricks

I found the first one to be very atmospheric and tense, with decent acting and a good opening premise (a couple on the outs after a declined proposal). What kept it from living up to its potential were the eventual boneheaded decisions of the protagonists (let's split up!). I think it's an above average horror flick that should have been better. I fully expect the sequel to fall even shorter.

Indeed. Cynicism at its best.

Just got back from this and it was entertaining. I liked it. Lots of John Carpenter homages especially at the end. The film clocks in at 85 minutes with credits, so it was brisk. I have not seen how much the budget is, but it should turn a profit. Don't know why they waited so long for the sequel.

It was only okay. Like a modern version of slasher film cliches.
