The Strangers: Prey at Night Movie Review (2018) | Roger Ebert

“The Strangers: Prey at Night” is an unexpected anomaly-a sequel that both is better than and fixes the problems of its predecessor.




The Strangers: Prey at Night – Second in series, this 2018 film stars Christina Hendricks, featuring a clip from Tiffany’s “I Think We’re Alone Now”. The 2008 installment, The Strangers stars Liv Tyler and uses another song to great effect, the country classic “Mama Tried” by Merle Haggard. No, it wasn’t really a sequel. I thought the original movie was better than the second, but maybe it will grow on me over time. Worth watching? I say yes.  



HARVEY’S DREAM SHORT STORY REVIEW – Harvey’s Dream by Stephen King reminds us that dreams can be scary. Harvey and Janet, a dysfunctional married couple, discuss how he woke up screaming, during a dream where one of their daughters was run over and killed. Who better than King to exploit a human primal fear? It’s a very short story, which first appeared in the New Yorker, and also appears in the collected works entitled ‘Just After Sunset’. Give it a read–and, you’ll find your heart racing as you sort out the differences–between dreams and wakefulness.
