Though it's as slim and poorly balanced as a cheap knife, "The Strangers: Prey at Night" is a stylish 1980s throwback that packs plenty of terror into its short running time.

It's never a good sign when a movie racks up its first ironic music cue before there is anything to be ironic about.

Hollywood Reporter

Replicating the tropes of its predecessor to a slavish degree, The Strangers: Prey at Night pretty much wastes all its inspiration on its punning title.

Variety (USA)

There's no real terror or dread in it, just the same old meat-puppet gore and cattle-prod scares served up with a kind of ritualised self-satisfaction.

The Guardian (UK)

Audience members will be too busy sighing at the screen to be scared.

Who are the assailants? Doesn't matter; they have no backstories, few weapons (a pick-up truck and a few stabby things) and zero personality.

While the film does possess its share of admittedly cheap jump scares - those masks! - Prey at Night gets far more traction from its mood, its pacing, and its overall skillful filmmaking than many other horror films of its ilk.
