Universal Home Entertainment is bringing The Strangers to a screen near you later this month, a thriller playing on one of our most universal fears.
The horrifying events that took place in the Hoyt family’s vacation home 1801 Clark Road on February 11, 2005 are still not entirely known. Champagne. Rose Petals. Candlelight. It was supposed to be a night of celebration for Kristen McKay (Liv Tyler) and James Hoyt (Scott Speedman). But after leaving a friend’s wedding and returning to the house, everything had collapsed for the happy couple. Then came a 4 a.m. knock on the door and a haunting voice. “Is Tamara here?”
The DVD version of the movie will feature an anamorphic widescreen presentation with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio. The movie will be presented in its theatrical version as well as an unrated cut. As extras the disc will contain Deleted Scenes as well as the Featurette “The Elements of Terror,” offering a look at the production process of “The Strangers.” The influence of locations, sets and sounds to create fear are discussed by the crew, with anecdotes from Liv Tyler about the physical challenges of being terrorized.
The Blu-Ray version with its 1080p high definition transfer will also offer a Dolby Digital 5.1 track as well as the theatrical and unrated cut of the film. The BD-25 disc will contain the same bonus materials found on the DVD release. As an additional extra, however, a BD Live feature will be included, allowing you to create your own movie clips, then view and share your favorite clips with your best buddies at any time!
“The Strangers” arrives in stores on October 21 for $29.98 and $39.99, respectively.
