Hot on the heels of the sequel Strangers Chapter 1 comes the original horrifying home-invasion movie The Strangers (2008). Writer-director Bryan Bertino’s (Mockingbird, The Monster) made his directorial debut with this firm cult favourite, which is now set for Standard Edition Blu-ray on 19 August 2024.

The chilling horror stars Liv Tyler (Lord of the Rings, The Leftovers) and Scott Speedman (Underworld, Animal Kingdom) as a young couple whose weekend escape turns into an unimaginable nightmare, as they’re terrorised by masked attackers.

After a proposal goes wrong at a friend’s wedding, what should have been a romantic break for Kristen (Tyler) and James (Speedman), is suddenly interrupted by a 4 am knock on the door and turns into a terrifying home invasion. Three masked strangers: Man in the Mask (Kip Weeks – Ragged Isle), Dollface (Gemma Ward – The Great Gatsby), and Pin-up Girl (Laura Margolis – Dirty Sexy Money) are a torturous twisted trio who have brutality in mind and the couple at their mercy, but who are they and what is their motive? The terrified couple must do everything they can to survive a night of psychological torment and bloodthirsty violence… who will make it out alive?

The release features a host of special features, including the extended and theatrical cut, interviews with Liv Tyler and Laura Margolis, director Bryan Bertino and editor Kevin Greutert (Titanic, The Saw Franchise) and more, please see full list below.
