    Is this even happening? I'm surprised it's taken so long.

    I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it. I just think it could have been done a lot better. I've been thinking about giving it a re-watch but I just lack the motivation.

    The original plan was for it to have been done all continuous, without any noticeable breaks in the edit, like The Silent House. This was how it was originally going to be made but when Raimi's company optioned the script from Brian and him to direct they wouldn't go for it because they didn't believe it could be done. That's the problem with Hollywood, they have to see someone else do it first.

    Kinda disappointing because Brian's movie offered a much cooler application of the no-cuts, "realtime" schtick than TSH did, either version, because we were going to do it as written, with flashbacks, location and time changes and all and never break the continuous feel.

    This is part of the reason I get annoyed when folks call it a movie based on Ils because we were talking about doing it this way years before The Silent House and nearly a year before Ils came out in Europe.

    I'd see a sequel, but really at this point I don't see it happening. The first did have some really good tension and atmosphere, though.

    Yeah, I really don't think it's happening. They get Scary Movie 5 made but not this.

    Would have been interesting had they had no cuts, would have completely changed the atmosphere of the film. Shame really.

    One of the few, more recent horror movies I have truly enjoyed. Not sure how a sequel would work and I am all for it as long as it is not a simple retread.

    Yeah, before Brian's script got the attention as a Nicholl finalist the realtime aspect was how we were planning on the film generating buzz without any stars, as an independent. Laboring in post production and loading actors with tons of rehearsal and really long takes was a lot more appealing than extended fundraising.

    I had this really boring argument with someone over on the BD forums a while back talking about this plan and they just wouldn't accept that, flashbacks and all, we were doing it continuous. I think he'd read the script and it was just making his head explode.

    That I'm aware, Brian never wrote the script itself as anything but conventionally structured. Elaborate screen action and post production notes would have actually hurt his chances of any conventional script reader even finishing it. Studio script readers are entry level meat shields between writers and studio folk who's time is actually valuable.

    Your script will get summarily tossed in the trash if you use a font that doesn't look like a standard typewriter, if you don't use the standard three-hole-punch paper or if you use three and not two brads to hold it together. Any excuse to chuck it in the trash before they get to page ten and then decide if they want to skip through to the back to see how it ends. An unknown writer with no agent...their prospects for making it or ever getting an actual shot are kinda like the odds of a man being rescued off a deserted island equipped with a palette of paper and empty bottles.

    When it got picked up and they agreed to let him direct there was no way he was going to fight to make it the way he really wanted.

    First one was good. I would like to see a #2 without the big names.

    Such a shame the industry is too scared to try new things, or people for that manner. Its good Robert Englund and Lance Henriksen(sp?) do all these low B movies for very little, or in some cases zero money, they know it'll get watched with them in it and they want new talent to be seen.

    Would have made for a far more interesting film had they done it as planned. Hopefully a sequel will get that approach. Doubtful though.

    Bryan Bertino’s 2008 home invasion thriller The Strangers was a successful debut for the director, and it seemed tailor-made for an immediate sequel. Though it hasn’t happened yet, despite several small starts, The Wrap reports Relativity is moving forward with The Strangers 2 with a new director and screenwriter. Marcel Langenegger, who directed 2008’s sexed-up thriller Deception with Ewan McGregor and Hugh Jackman, will take the helm. He’ll work from a script by Ben Katai, best known for writing and directing the 30 Days of Night sequel, as well as the non-horror Crackle series Chosen, which stars Milo Ventimiglia as a man who gets tasked with killing someone. Interesting choices.

    The Strangers 2, which originally had Bertino as writer, will center on a family taking a trip to a trailer park that a relative owns, with the troublesome teenage daughter soon going away to boarding school. Only when they arrive, the man and his wife are found dead at the hands of Dollface, Pin-Up Girl and Man in the Mask, and the family then spends the rest of the night trying to survive the masked attackers. Will The Strangers 2 one day make itself familiar to everyone, or will this be another failed beginning?
