‘The Strangers’ Sequel Gets First Official Trailer

Premiering Thursday, 11/16, Aviron Pictures has released the first official trailer for The Strangers: Prey at Night, the sequel to the 2008 cult horror film.

While in production hell for nine years, Prey at Night  began filming in June 2017 in Covington, Kentucky and concluded on July 10. It will finally be released on March 9, 2018. Johannes Roberts, known for his directorial work on 47 Meters Down, helmed the film.

The story follows a family on a road trip that 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.

The original Strangers film was released on May 30, 2008 and grossed $82 million worldwide off a budget of $9 million.

Popular works of horror have taken inspiration from the original film, namely 2013’s The Purge, which also featured masked maniacs trying to break in to a family’s home and terrorize them.

Prey at Night stars Christina Hendricks, Martin Henderson, Bailee Madison and Lewis Pullman.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K’s that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street.


During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
