After attending the wedding of two friends, Kristen and James leave for James' family secluded summer house, where they plan on spending a romantic evening. Their plans are disrupted when three masked and armed figures enter the house, intent on torturing and maiming the couple. THE STRANGERS is a classic horror movie, pitting two innocent victims agains the terror of masked and mysterious individuals. The fact that it's based on real events, only makes the film scarier.
