    "Scaring the poop outta everyone with a final jumpscare"

    Meanwhile I remember watching this when it came out. I was 10 and I'm pretty sure life after that day has been purgatory because I'm pretty sure I died. X'D

      Always thought the strangers movies were kinda worthless. Nothing to it at all. But i like listening to people explain this type of stuff for some reason

            This movie might not have had the best script etc but still a classic horror movie in my opinion

                "Because you were home" has to be the most terrifying tagline for any horror movie ever.

                  Phone Caller: You know you never told me your name.
                  Victim: Why do you wanna know my name?
                  Phone Caller: Because I wanna know who im looking at.

                @0:38 as a kid when I saw this me and my brothers and sister always thought her response was "cause you're a hoe". Listen to that scene again and tell me it doesn't sound like that's what she says.

                      I interpreted the ending not as it indicated that the group of 3 had never killed before, but that the blonde Doll Face was a new addition to the group and it was her first time.

Bullshit suck my dick. It sucking fucks it fucking sucks don’t watch this shit

                                          I hadn't noticed before that during most of the movie she's wearing a flannel shirt and jeans however when she's tied up in the end she's wearing her dress again. So they would have had to have changed her clothes.

                                                  The motive for the Manson family crimes was to create a race war. Read the book by prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi.

                                                    Why did his friend not call the police after driving past the the mangled car and the truck that was supposedly blocking their way out? On top of that he entered through the axed and shot front door without batting an eye? I wish these horror movies had real people as the characters, would make them a lot more tense.

                                                            Regarding the manson mureders; the killings were not random.
                                                            The home where tbe killings took place was previously owned by a man named Terry Melcher. Terry was the son of Doris Day and a popular, successfu record producer. He was also the record producer who rejected Charlie Manson for a record deal. The murders were a targeted revenge killing by Charlie, who was unaware Terry Melcher no longer lived in the house.
                                                            You need to do a little more research and get your facts straight if you presume to be the one explaining movies to people.

The reason this movie is scary and effective, especially when she's alone at the beginning, is because it takes the place that is supposed to be safe and turns it into the back alley or dark woods or any other place we associate with danger. Why do I watch these things before have to go to bed, ahh!!!!
