Ahead of its theatrical release this week, Lionsgate reveals two new official looks at The Strangers: Chapter 1the first installment of a trilogy inspired by the horror franchise The Strangerswhich is carried out by the director Renny Harlin (Cliffhanger, Deep Blue Sea, Die Hard 2).

Con big screen release date set for May 17, 2024, the studio continues to prepare the audience with two official images that you find at the end of this note. The first of them focuses on one of the villains, Man in the Mask, in the middle of the forest, while the second lets us see Man in the Mask and Dollface stalking the protagonist, who is tied to a chair.

As said before, the three villains from the original installment, Dollface, Pin-Up Girl, and Man in the Mask are back in this new trilogy.

The trilogy was launched in September 2022. It is based on the original 2008 cult film by Bryan Bertino, of which Harlin has confessed to being a fan.

Chapter 1 focuses on the leading couple played by Madelaine Petsch (Riverdale, Jane) y Froy Gutierrez (Cruel Summer, Hocus Pocus 2, Teen Wolf), giving life to Maya and Ryan, a newly engaged couple, who ventures on a road trip. When their car breaks down, they are forced to spend the night at a secluded Airbnb in the woods, where three masked strangers terrorize and attack them from dusk to dawn, without warning or reason.

In recent weeks, Harlin assured that, although the promos for Chapter 1 They seem to suggest that it would be a remake of the original delivery, this is NOT the case. This will carve its own path, while the aftermath, Chapter 2 y Chapter 3will expand the story in new and unexpected ways.

Harlin complemented on the projects:

“Sin trying to trivialize it or explain it too much, the second and third films are an exploration of where it came from [todo]. More than anything, they are an exploration of what could happen to a person, in this case, a young woman, who is the victim of such senseless violence. What effect does that have on you mentally and physically, and what is your journey after that? It's an exploration of that more than anything. And I think we'll answer a lot of the questions that fans of the original have and then go much further. At the end of the third film, there really are more questions than answers.


A young couple drives across the country toward a new beginning; Unfortunately, they have no choice but to stop at an isolated Airbnb in Oregon and endure a night of terror against three masked strangers.

The script was co-written by Alan R. Cohen y Alan Freedland (The Freak Brothers, Due Date).

Lionsgate will release in theaters The Strangers: Chapter 1 on May 17, 2024.
