'The Strangers' Review - Sort Of

I know that this will come as no surprise to you, but I thought 'The Strangers' was a really good, very well-done horror movie, something difficult to accomplish these days, it seems.

'The Strangers' accomplishes every thing it sets out to. I won't give anything away, but suffice it to say that it is quite possibly the scariest movie I have ever seen in the theaters.

The script is a bit sparse, but the director finds inventive ways to manipulate not only the camera, but the audience as well. There's something to be said for having a talented guy at the helm. It's bitter and mean-spirited, but it's also extremely scary. Like, sweat-in-the-palms, peek-into-the-backseat-before-you-get-in sort of scary. And I am not easily frightened.

Great movie. Please go see it, if you like horror movies. It is not a 'mainstream' horror flick. It's not like SAW and it's not like Hostel, but it's mean and scary and there's little to no blood. Hmmm.
