Supposedly based on a true story, “The Strangers” stars Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman as a couple that is seemingly randomly selected to be victimized by a small group of strangers wearing funky masks, played by Kip Weeks and Gemma Ward, and one more would-be killer. Here’s a clip from the movie that was released on Myspace. The film was written and directed by first-timer Bryan Bertino, a former actor and, according to IMDB.com, gaffer. Wow, that’s some promotion there, Bryan.
After returning from a wedding reception, a couple staying in an isolated vacation house receive a knock on the door in the mid-hours of the night. What ensues is a violent invasion by three strangers, their faces hidden behind masks. The couple find themselves in a violent struggle, in which they go beyond what either of them thought capable in order to survive.
