The 31 Days of Horror #14: The Strangers (2008)

Title: The Strangers
Year: 2008.
Sub-Genre: Home Invasion, Survival.

We featured the French Gem, Them, at #19 on our countdown, and while it's every bit as good as The Strangers is (along with being eerily similar), there's something about The Strangers that grips us in a completely different way.

This is a claustrophobic and intense Home Invasion flick that takes its time and favors a slow build and genuine scares over those of the "jump" variety to get its point across, and man does it ever get its point across.

"Because you were home." What a great line.



See you tomorrow with #13!
