Critics Have Seen The Strangers: Chapter 1, And They’re Not Holding Back On The New Slasher


The 2008 film The Strangers — one of the best horror movies of the 2000s — told the story of a couple being terrorized by masked assailants while staying at a remote vacation home. In the upcoming horror movie The Strangers: Chapter 1, we’ll go further into that lore in the first of a planned prequel trilogy. Critics are weighing in on the project, which stars Madelaine Petsch and Froy Gutierrez as the couple whose cross-country trip turns into a nightmare. 

First reactions to The Strangers: Chapter 1 were generally positive, with people calling it a “terrifying gorefest” but taking issue with a few different aspects. Meagan Navarro of Bloody Disgusting gives it 2.5 out of 5 skulls, writing that this movie leans so heavily on its predecessor that it doesn’t have much impact on its own. But it does pique curiosity about where the next two movies will go. The critic continues: 

The Strangers: Chapter 1 exists in a unique place in that it’s the first 90 minutes of what will amount to a roughly 4.5-hour movie yet doesn’t give much away at all about what’s ahead, presenting only part of the whole picture. Chapter 1 does a sufficient job laying the groundwork and delivering horror thrills but with a caveat: the less familiar you are with The Strangers, the better. Harlin and crew get a bit too faithful in their bid to recreate Bertino’s effective scares, even when remixing them, and it dampens what works.
