A familiar terror returns: The Strangers: Chapter 1

2024-05-15

“The Strangers: Chapter 1” brings back the masked menaces that terrorized a family in the 2008 horror film. This time, the target is a young couple on a road trip whose car breaks down in an unsettling town. Forced to seek refuge in a remote cabin, they become prey for the trio in white masks, who seem to enjoy inflicting fear and violence.

Directed by Renny Harlin, the movie delivers the expected chills and jump scares. Madelaine Petsch and Gabriel Basso portray the couple well, effectively conveying the mounting panic as they are relentlessly pursued by their unseen tormentors. The plot itself, however, treads familiar ground. While there is an attempt to modernize the story, it doesn’t deviate significantly from the original movie’s formula.

For fans of the first “Strangers”, this sequel may offer a decent return to the world of masked mayhem. But for those looking for a fresh horror experience, “The Strangers: Chapter 1” may feel like a retread.
