THE STRANGERS – CHAPTER 1 Trailer Begins a New Home Invasion Nightmare

We all have hobbies that give us a purpose. That’s as true for scrapbookers, travelers, and toy collectors as it is for those who enjoy putting on a creepy mask and terrorizing innocent people who made the unfortunate mistake of stopping in the wrong town of violent psychopaths. Why does someone choose the latter way to pass their time? The unsettling The Strangers – Chapter 1 trailer provides the scariest answer of all.

The Strangers – Chapter 1 Trailer

The Strangers franchise, which began in 2008 and returned in 2018 with The Strangers: Prey at Night, is returning to theaters with its third film. This latest installment will also will kick off a new trilogy of home invasion nightmares. Once again a couple of outsiders will fight for their life against people who want them dead for reasons they don’t understand. Here’s the movie’s official synopsis from Lionsgate:

After their car breaks down in an eerie small town, a young couple are forced to spend the night in a remote cabin. Panic ensues as they are terrorized by three masked strangers who strike with no mercy and seemingly no motive in The Strangers – Chapter 1, the chilling first entry of this upcoming horror feature film series.

Meet the Strangers and Theirs Masks

The Strangers Chapter One masks and names

Recently, The Strangers – Chapter 1 released a closer look at our creepy masked strangers. And we also learned a little bit more about the personality of each mask.

A release shares that the left-most Strangers is Dollface, who is said to be “Smiling through every slash.” In the middle there is Pin-Up Girl, “She’s got killer looks.” And finally, there’s Scarecrow… “He’s already at your door.”


The Strangers – Chapter 1 Release Date and More

Three killers in masks stare at two people in chairs in The Strangers - Chapter 1

Renny Harlin (Cliffhanger, Die Hard 2, The Exorcist: The Beginning) directs with a script from Alan R. Cohen & Alan Freedland. The film stars Madelaine Petsch, Froy Guitierrez, Gabriel Basso, Ema Horvath, and those damn masks.

The Strangers – Chapter 1 breaks into theaters nationwide this spring on May 17, 2024. Whether it’s destined to be both a box office hit and a cult classic like the original film remains to be seen. We do know one thing, though – we don’t like this trailer (in the good way). A creepy cabin in the woods combined with the creepiest people on the planet will always frighten us. And the more experience those killers have the scarier they are.
