I liked a lot of things in this movie that I didn't expect to, and I disliked a lot of the things I thought I'd be on board with, averaging out for a pretty midling experience. I didn't love _The Strangers: Prey at Night_ but I was into it enough that I'd watch it again some day.
_Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
Now that's what I call a surprise. After the first "The Strangers" being quite good in my opinion, I didn't put too much hope on the sequel. The first one at least had Liv Tyler, right? "The Strangers: Prey At Night" features no bigger actors, aside from Martin Henderson maybe, but therefore the director of "47 Meters Down" and "The Other Side Of The Door", movies I really enjoyed. And after seeing, he took on the second part here, I was very curious. And he really nailed it. I liked the entire family and with each one being in trouble, I felt the tension rising. The killers were basically doing what they did in the first one, so that stays true to the source material, and then we get this amazing 80s soundtrack throughout the movie. Heck, we can almost enjoy Bonnie Tyler's 'Total Eclipse Of The Heart' in its entire length, while at the same time sitting there with the eyes glued to the screen, because you don't want to miss a single detail. That is some really great directing here and as a result, I like this sequel even much more than the first one. And that is a very great compliment towards the entire cast and crew. Keep up that good work!
