Storyline Heading
When Cindy and her husband, take their rebellious teenage daughter and son on a road trip, what began as an ordinary, gripe-filled family excursion soon becomes their worst nightmare come to life. Upon arrival at a secluded mobile home park, a knock on their trailer door leads to an inescapable night of terror as three masked strangers, with inexplicable deadly intentions, force this fractured family to come together and fight for their lives.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Horror - Like the first film from 2008, this is a slasher horror film that has little in story and is mostly about style. Christina Hendricks and Martin Henderson are the familiar faces here, but their roles are pretty limited, with the young actors playing their children being more prominent. Language and bloody, brutal violence make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good ...an unexpected anomaly—a sequel that both is better than and fixes the problems of its predecessor. It's a chilling and genuinely frightening horror film, driven by some solid performances and Roberts' command of atmosphere, location, and relentless pacing.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Above Average ... Roberts reconfigures the elements of Bryan Bertino's po-faced home-invasion thriller into a slick retro-style slasher: upping the body count, diversifying the methods of violence, and imbuing the whole thing with an aura of wry self-awareness. The result is a film with a fair bit of style but nothing much on its mind...

Newsday Full Review
Below Average A slight improvement over the 2008 original, which is not saying much. Though slightly more compelling than the original thanks to something resembling characters, "Prey at Night" mostly proves that its basic premise remains enduringly, stubbornly uninteresting.

The Guardian Full Review
Below Average A follow-up to the nastily effective 2008 hit about a family of masked killers is competently made but devoid of tension. Before long, characters are all making stock horror movie decisions, and there's no amount of effective craftsmanship that can sell stupidity. Audience members will be too busy sighing at the screen to be scared.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 9 moviegoers:
We weren't able to collect enough reviews to be very accurate, but these few reviews show that most weren't impressed with this movie. These aren't bad review by any means, but they show that only one twentysomething male and two twentysomething females loved "The Strangers Prey at Night." Most felt it was just an "average" movie.
