The Strangers: Prey at Night ★★

The Strangers: Prey at Night a sequel in name only to the reasonably effective 2008 original, has some nice atmospheric shots, neon light, and a score that completely rips off John Carpenter's The Fog. But, it also has none of the tension of the original and ultimately feels like an incompetent, direct-to-video sequel.

Speaking of incompetent, the director Johannes Roberts really doesn't know how to keep it all together. The characters make incredibly stupid decisions, the kills are unimaginative and not what genre fans expect, and the ending, well, let's just say it's lazy as shit. The fact this took ten years to get made and this was the result is testament that there really wasn't anything further to add.

Save yourself a hour and a half and give this one a miss or simply rewatch the original.
