The Strangers: Prey at Night ★★★

I'm almost more hyped on this movie because of Jeremy. He's more eloquent at describing the surprisingly more deeper subtext to this genre sequel. It's slow to start which I deduct points for but once the hunting starts, the seriousness and the empathy the camera provides to each death was more effective and moving than one would expect. You not only feel guilt but you feel the brutality of killing. It's more slasher than it's predecessor but The Strangers is pretty bad so I welcome these improvements. There are some fantastic 70's horror-inspired sequences that are more than homages but jumping off points for its violent commentary.
