The Strangers 2 director Johannes Roberts sat down with the guys over at Dread Central to discuss the upcoming sequel, which he revealed is inspired by the films of horror master John Carpenter! Roberts on The Strangers 2: “It’s going to be great, I hope. I’m in week two of filming. It’s Christina Hendricks, Martin Henderson, Bailee Madison, Lewis Pullman, and they’re fucking great. It looks absolutely incredible. I love Bertino’s film, I think it’s an amazing movie and tonally this movie is going to fit very well into that universe. It has a real strong emotional heart, which the first one did, and it has a very cool retro feel to it, a lot of sort of references to… I mean, I always bring a lot of John Carpenter with me because that’s what I grew up on, but also maybe going back a bit earlier to the seventies movies, from Don’t Look Now to Duel, the Spielberg movie, even Christine a bit, the John Carpenter movie. All of these influences are finding their way into the movie, but I think it’s going to be a real fantastic movie. I’m super excited about it.” Emmy Award-nominated Christina Hendricks (“Mad Men,” The Neon Demon, Drive), Bailee Madison (“Once Upon a Time,” Just Go with It), and Lewis Pullman (Aftermath, Battle of the Sexes) star. Synopsis: “A family whose road trip takes a turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park and after the power goes out they decide to hunker down for the night in a borrowed trailer. Under the cover of darkness, three familiar masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test their every limit.“ Sounds pretty damn good to us.
