16 Horror Movies That Will Make You Pee Your Pants
The Strangers (2008)
Unlike, Elm Street, The Strangers is firmly rooted in reality, taking inspiration from the Mansons’ Tate Murders, the Keddie Cabin Murders, and a series of break-ins that happened in director Bryan Bertino‘s neighborhood as a child. There’s something about seemingly random home invasions that are just terrifying, and adding creepy makeshift masks only makes it worse. The Strangers relies on jump scares and suspense instead of over-the-top gore to create its sadistic story, which has polarized critics but left a lasting impression on horror fans.
