Brief Synopsis:
A recut of the film The Strangers to keep it a complete psychological horror. The ending has been completely modified for a new experience.
Intention:
Overall I really enjoyed this film. It was a great horror movie for me. However, the ending just didn’t sit right with me. The cool part of the movie for me was that we don’t see much of whats going on. Its just us and the horror that the 2 main characters are experiencing. The ending changes that mood really, and shows way too much, IMHO. With this version, I have greatly modified the beginning and ending of the film to keep that psychological horror experience in tact.
Special Thanks:
Special thanks to zorzalita, boon23, AvP, ghostcut, and moth3r.

A great example of how simple cuts can make a big difference in the mood of a film.

Just saw this with 2 friends the other night. None of us have seen the original yet, but I already know that I prefer your edit.

Personally, scary movies are very effective on me. It apparently is not that hard to scare me. But I don’t enjoy a lot of gore, so I avoid a lot of the movies out there. Your edit gave me a pretty good piece of psychological suspense, and felt like a real movie (i.e. no noticeable edits).
