What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Mpho Rantao quote iconThere's nothing new in 'Strangers' horror sequel.

Gabi Zietsman quote iconThe Strangers: Prey at Night is really nothing more than what you see in the trailer, with no unexpected twists unlike the first one. It’s straightforward enough that you may get a jump or two, but at some point you actually just get bored with the slow-moving masked psychos.

Tomatometer quote iconThe Strangers: Prey at Night may appeal to fans of the original who’ve been jonesing for a sequel, but its thin story and ironic embrace of genre tropes add up to a bloody step back.
