Fun Facts about The Strangers: Chapter 1

• Stellar Cast: The film features a top-notch cast, led by Madelaine Petsch and Froy Gutiérrez, who carry the weight of the story with their realistic and intense performances.

• A Reimagined Story: Drawing on the story created by Bryan Bertino and brought to the screen some years ago, Alan R. Cohen and Alan Freedland wrote the script for The Strangers, rescuing the concept that we are all strangers to each other and that we never really know what we’ll encounter, thus reimagining the story already known by some horror fans.

• An Uncommon Script: Cohen and Freedland crafted such an extensive new story that, instead of the usual 95 pages of a script, The Strangers has 278 pages.

• A New Saga is Born: Due to the extensive script, Harlin and the studio’s decision was to create three major films to tell the story without waste and thus ensure that the first chapter, as a first act, serves as the basis for the rest of the plot.

• Renny Harlin, a Horror-Loving Director: The talented director behind this new installment shares his passion for the horror genre and his unique vision for the film. Inspired by horror cinema classics and his love for dark and twisted stories, Harlin promises to take viewers to forbidden places and surprise them with unexpected twists throughout the trilogy.

• Full Circle: In a recent interview I had the opportunity to conduct with Madelaine Petsch, she revealed that they have already finished filming the entire trilogy and are only awaiting their theatrical release, starting with chapter 1, which will be released on May 1st.

• Masked but Not Inert: The trio of ruthless strangers who create a living nightmare for the protagonists of this film was also carefully selected as they had to be actors who could convey emotion even with the mask on.

The production team is comprised of Courtney Solomon, Mark Canton, Christopher Milburn, Gary Raskin, Alastair Burlingham, and Charlie Dombek. Lionsgate presents, a Fifth Element production, in association with Stream Media / Sherborne Media, in association with Lipsync.

With a stellar cast, an intriguing plot, and a palpable atmosphere of terror, The Strangers: Chapter 1 is destined to become a modern classic of horror cinema.
