About The Strangers: Chapter 1 Movie:

The Strangers: Chapter 1 is an American horror film written by Alan R. Cohen, Alan Freedland, and Amber Loutfi and directed by Renny Harlin. The film stars Madelaine Petsch and Froy Gutierrez.

It is the first installment of a new trilogy of standalone sequel films, where Chapter 1 will follow a similar premise to the original release, before continuing from there and expanding the story-arc for the main characters.

Though initially marketed as a reboot of the franchise, it has since been clarified that the films will take place in the same continuity as the first two installments.

Principal photography on all three films commenced in September 2022 in Bratislava, Slovakia, and was completed in November 2022.

Lionsgate hosted the world premiere at Regal L.A. Live on May 8, 2024. It was theatrically released on May 17, 2024.

Two sequels which were filmed concurrently with Chapter 1, will be released at unspecified dates in 2024.
