Halloween is but a distant memory now that Hollywood’s major studios have released their themed horror treats for 2017 (see: Jigsaw, Leatherface, Cult of Chucky), but don’t worry, as Aviron Pictures has another trick up its sleeve in time for the New Year.
After landing distribution rights to the horror sequel, one which is arriving courtesy of director Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down), Aviron has today premiered a blood-curdling new poster for The Strangers: Prey At Night – which can be seen in the gallery down below along with the one from last month.
Set to arrive a full 10 years after Bryan Bertino’s original cult hit, this new effort has been championed as a soft reboot for the horror series, given that it’s opened its doors to Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, Lewis Pullman and Martin Henderson, who play a family on a road trip. Unfortunately, things don’t go so well for them, though, as three unhinged psychos – Emma Bellomy as Dollface, Lea Enslin as Pin-Up Girl and Damian Maffei as the Man in the Mask – decide to pay them a visit.
It’s been a long, long time since The Strangers was in theaters, but considering Roberts’ achievement on 47 Meters Down, we’re willing to lend Prey at Night the benefit of the doubt. He directs from a script penned by Bertino and Ben Ketai, while the official logline reads as so:
A family’s road trip 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.
“Let us prey.” Aviron Pictures will begin screening The Strangers: Prey at Night on March 9th, 2018.
