A Sequel To 'The Strangers' Is Coming Out And The Trailer Is Scary As S**t

I can't remember much about The Strangers but I do remember seeing it in the cinemas. I was 16 years old and I'd asked a girl I'd met through MySpace (classic) to go to cinemas (more classic). (If you wondering what the fuck this has to do with anything, they're bringing out a sequel to The Strangers and you can watch the trailer below:)

"What should we go see," I asked her - or should I say MSN'ed her - ever the gentleman. I figured that being a girl she'd be into something shit - you know a chick-flick, Bridget Jones or whatever - something to watch for 20 minutes and then to neck off to. But how wrong I was.

See, I'm not really into horror films because, to cut to the chase, I'm a chicken shit. This girl Lucy, though, apparently was not. The movie she opted for was The Strangers, and so a week later I embarked on the worst and most awkward date I'll probably ever experience.

What was so bad? Well, there was jumping out of the seat. There were screams of shock. There were bathroom breaks taken purely to shake off the fear. There was a broken human being when the lights were turned on.

And, yes, obviously, tragically, that was all me. She, on the other hand, put her legs on the chair in front and whispered 'this isn't even scary'.

When it was over, I walked her back to the train station. She wasn't having anything of my attempt to hold her hand. I called it quits and we said our goodbyes.

If you're wondering about The Strangers: Prey at Night, apparently the plot is as follows: "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."

Mad Men's Christina Hendricks will feature in the new film, along with Bailee Madison, Lewis Pullman and Martin Henderson

It's set for release 9 March 2018, maybe you'll like to see it. Personally I'll be giving it a miss.
