I recently had watched this movie, and I must say that without question this movie is the scariest, and creepiest movie I have ever seen. In fact it was so scarry that I slept all the lights on the last two nights, and I keep a baseball bat by my night stand.

I am not going to recap the movie ad nauseum the way some of the other reviews here have already done, however I will give a high level perspective of why this movie is so good at being scarry.

1. There are no ghouls, ghosts, vampires, and demons. The premise of this movie is litteraly one group of people taking advantage of other people.

2. The costumes used by the strangers were simple, and eloquent. Exactly the kind of stuff one could pick up at any party store or costume shop. I feel as though this added a whole other level of realism to the movie.

3. Overall creepiness of the type of harrasment the strangers inflicted on the kristen, and james.

Some negatives that I observed about the movie:

1. James and Kristen making some stupid decisions, that would have any person with a brain scratching their heads...ie...splitting up when you have these psychopaths coming at you from all directions.

2. The strangers violating the laws of physics by being able to subtly and quickly sneak into a space and scrawl messages across the walls, windows of a room to further torment our protaganists, and never ever be seen or heard by James and Kristen. This just doesnt seem plausible to me.

3. The ending didnt really give me closure.

With all that, the movie was highly effective at serving its purpose which was to freak me out, and entertain me, which it did for it's entire 80 minute running time.

I highly recommend this movie, and am only giving this movie 4 stars instead of 5 for the reasons I state above.

This atmospheric - and undeniably horrifying - directorial debut from Bryan Bertino gave me the chills unlike any other film that I have seen in a long while.

I won't go into the story, because most of you already know it, but I will tell you this: if you are as jumpy and as easily frightened as I am, do NOT watch this one alone. I made the mistake of doing that the first time, and I couldn't finish it. I had to rent it later on, and watch it with a room full of people in order to see the entire film. The thing that makes the film so effective is simply this: this could happen to anybody. Anybody could break into your home and terrorize you for no reason.

The direction is strong, and Liv Tyler does an excellent job. You can tell that it was definitely inspired by Haneke's FUNNY GAMES, but it's not a rip-off by any means. Bryan Bertino has done an excellent job with his first film, and I look forward to his next film.

This is a VERY scary movie! The acting and writing are great, the characters are strong and and the intruders are truly creepy and will stay with you long after the movie's over. They say horror is an invasion of privacy -- well this movie taps into that perfectly. I hope Liv Tyler does more horror movies, she's nailed this one! Though I would categorize this as a terror film, which is slightly different than horror -- but for us horror fans pretty much all the same. These people are being terrorized and its a situation that could happen (and lets hope it never does!). If you're a fan of scary movies and by some miracle haven't caught this one -- rent or buy, you won't be disappointed.

This movie is quite possibly one of the scariest I have ever seen. Not your run-of-the-mill horror movies like a lot of the mainstream Hollywood movies that are out there as it takes a different route for scares. There is an ominous feeling of dread and suspense that hangs over you the entire film and, in several of the creepier moments and scares of the movie, makes it difficult not to cringe.

The acting and characters, setting, cinematography, soundtrack and story are all excellent, albeit rather unsettling, and provide a much needed breath of fresh air from the huge list of sub-par horror movies that continually crank out every year.

If you're looking to be scared, 'The Strangers' will to do the trick and then some.

I was a little worried, to be honest. Based on the premise and early looks at the trailer, it had the look of yet another "torture porn" story, of which there are already plenty. Fortunately, 'The Strangers' rises above this and sets out to create something far more subtle, but no less gripping.

'The Strangers' is a no-frills suspense film. The premise is pretty basic: Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman play a couple on the rocks, spending the night together in a secluded home. From the beginning, there's a strong sense of isolation and a feeling of sadness that pervades the movie. The uneasiness grows, steadily and unstoppably, as it becomes apparent that they're not the only ones out there...and the strangers that slowly encroach on them do not have good intentions. Not at all.

There's a little backstory here, mostly telling us what's going on between the two main characters, but the main thrust of the story is the growing presence of the strangers. It's done effectively, at first mostly with sound - a knock on the door, a whispered voice, a disturbed wind chime on the back porch. Eventually we see them, often lurking in the background, wearing blank masks of burlap or creepy doll faces. The pace is steady - implacable and insistent and undeniable.

The smartest thing about 'The Strangers' is how it balances what is seen and what is unseen. It doesn't rely on gore or "gotcha" moments for its scares. Instead, it captures the feeling of isolation and the unknown - the feeling of being alone and afraid of something you can't see - and builds on it effectively. The ending is shocking and brutal yet not overdone.
