The Strangers is a 2008 American psychological horror film written and directed by Bryan Bertino. The plot follows Kristen (Liv Tyler) and James (Scott Speedman) whose stay at a vacation home is disrupted by three masked criminals who infiltrate the home. The screenplay was inspired by two real-life events: the Manson family Tate murders, a multiple homicide, as well as a series of break-ins that occurred in Bertino’s neighbourhood as a child. Some journalists noted similarities between the film and the Keddie cabin murders that occurred in Keddie, California in 1981, though Bertino did not cite this as a reference. This modern horror favourite is getting a new limited-edition BluRay release in the UK from Second Sight Films.
Four brand new audio adventures from the era of Peter Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor will be brought to life by Jacob Dudman in The Twelfth Doctor Chronicles due for release from Big Finish in February 2020.
