The Strangers Movie Review

The acting was kind of dead in the movie, but I still really liked the movie. Fortunately the storyline didn't require good acting. The producers did a really good job of making this movie scary. It wasn't even an overly complex plot. I will say don't try to think too much because there are definite flaws with the plot.

The things I liked about this movie is that it doesn't really attempt to be feel good. It is a raw story that is told in a raw manner. It wasn't based on shock value either. It didn't have scenes like the ones from The Hills Have Eyes or Hostel. It played off of psychological fears. As a matter of fact it freaked out my girlfriend. We go in a little fight because she expressed on irrational fear of moving out to a wooded area.

Alright that is pretty much my review of the movie. Go see this one if you are in the mood for something scary. Now a tip for the guys.

If your girlfriend start to express some crazy fear after seeing the movie don't try to appeal to her with logic. This is not what she is looking for; making me an idiot. Simply, let her know that you will protect her and go where ever she feels comfortable. Try to sympathize and relate. Females are naturally emotional we are not, and that mean that you will have to make the effort to be compassionate. Now if only I could turn back the clock.
