Entertainment Tonight (h/t Bloody Disgusting) has today unleashed some new footage for long-in-development sequel, The Strangers: Prey at Night, and it’s enough to strike fear in even the toughest of horror aficionados.
As the title suggests, it’s the much-anticipated continuation of Bryan Bertino’s cult favorite – a continuation 10 years in the making – and it once again chronicles the collective killing spree conducted by everyone’s favorite strangers: Dollface, Pin-up Girl and the Man in the Mask.
On paper, they sound like the worst superhero team in the history of superhero teams, but don’t let the frivolous nicknames fool you; together, The Strangers form the deadliest lineup in the land, and ET’s eerie clip is not for the faint of heart. Granted, it’s more concerned with Prey at Night‘s leading family – a family made up of Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) et. al – as they slowly come to the horrifying realization that they’re not alone, after all.
Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) directs from a script penned by Ben Ketai and Bryan Bertino, the latter of whom is responsible for The Strangers in the first place. This time around, Prey At Night follows a family’s innocent road trip as it takes a “dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive.”
Aviron Pictures will unleash a trio of masked psychopaths when The Strangers: Prey at Night begins screening (and we begin screaming!) on March 9th.
