The strangers

Not very surprisingly, just disappointing.

Another dull “horror” film built with easy scary scenes and with nothing else behind to back up the sensationalistic series of events.

But rather than being utterly unnecessary, the actual problem is realising that no one even tried to create anything minimally original or even worth of the genre at any point.

As usual, it is the poor audience, lured into the cinema with attractive, promising posters and expectation-creating commercial slogans, who suffers the ultimate disappointment.

On the plus side, the protagonist couple (Scott Speedman and Liv Tyler) is really good-looking, and their mere sight will delight the audience greatly. Which must be rewarding for the producers, since, given the rest of this uni-dimensional product, this seems to be the one aspect they were concerned about.
