In 2008, director Brian Bertino released “The Strangers,” a tense horror film starring Scott Speedman and Liv Tyler as a married couple who are terrorized at their vacation home by a pair of masked strangers. The film was inspired in part by the murder of actress Sharon Tate in 1969 by the Manson Family, and also by a series of break-ins that occurred in Bertino’s neighborhood growing up. The film was a box office success, and was also named one of IndieWire’s 20 best horror films of the 21st century.
Nearly a decade later, “The Strangers” is getting a reboot co-written by Bertino and directed by Johannes Roberts, who directed 2017’s highest grossing indie, “47 Meters Down.” According to the synopsis, “The Strangers: Prey at Night” follows a family staying in a secluded mobile home park for the night who are visited by three masked psychopaths. The family must put their survival skills to the test and fight off the strangers — or die trying.
