Strangers 2 First Look, Release Date and Title Revealed

12 October 2017 10:11 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For years we've heard about a potential sequel to The Strangers, a movie that many consider to be one of the best home invasion horror movies ever made. Now, The Strangers 2 is finally makings its way to theaters. Not only that, but the sequel has an official title and release date. To top it all off, the studio has released the very first photo from the highly-anticipated horror sequel and, if we were to guess, the trailer probably isn't all that far behind.

According to a report from Bloody Disgusting, The Strangers 2 is now officially titled Strangers: Prey at Night. The studio has officially given the movie a March 9, 2018, release date. That is significant, as it marks the 10th anniversary of the original movie. An entire decade between horror sequels for a very successful movie is an unusually long time to wait. The Strangers was made for just $9 million and grossed $82 million worldwide. »

There are many filmmaking workshops, hosted by institutions ranging from Sundance to Ifp, that allow emerging directors to assess their next projects with a group of mentors. Shudder Labs falls in line with that tradition, but comes equipped with a special focus: The new creative retreat is exclusively designed for horror directors. Hosted by Shudder, the horror streaming platform owned by AMC Networks, Shudder Labs was run by former journalist and curator Sam Zimmerman and took place June 11–15 at the Mohonk Mountain House.

Seven filmmakers participated in the lab, taking guidance from mentors that included Sarah Adina Smith (“Buster’s Mal Heart”), Larry Fessenden (director, “The Last Winter”) and Lindsay Peters (Director of the Frontieres International Co-Production Market). The Masters-in-Residence were Mike Flanagan (director, “Ouija: Origin of Evil,” “Hush,” the upcoming Stephen King adaption “Gerald’s Game”) and Nick Antosca (screenwriter, “Channel Zero,” “Hannibal,” “The Forest”).
