Ham-Fisted to Say the Least

As a previous reviewer pointed out, this is a vampire movie that doesn't seem like a vampire movie at first. It becomes obvious pretty early on but it doesn't feel like even good vampire movies that are out there.

The problem comes from the characters. The writing is a god-awful vomit of words that just seems so fake as to be a parody of itself. The goofy thugs on "the stranger"'s first night were so brazen as to be impossible to believe. The corrupt cop dad showing up... OK, I can buy that. But then he starts acting as if absolutely nobody will do anything to him for not only dragging the body of a murder victim off to hide it for his idiotic son but then he picks up the kid, sets him on fire, pulls him off of a bus in front of dozens of passengers and... How do you write this and not see how insanely goofy this is?

The main characters aren't QUITE as unbelievable but the outright stupidity of some of them can't be believed either.

Conceptually it had potential. The execution was a miserable failure

Good story, but bad acting!

I never write reviews but this time I had to! The story itself is not bad at all, but the acting is. Only Cristobal Tapia Montt as Martin is saved here. Also, the lines in some cases are really off! The dialogues sometimes really don't deliver. Production company IFC Midnight normally produces good or decent horror movies, but this time is sadly not the case. If you are a horror fan and you have a lot of time, then watch it.

The Best Part Is When The Movie Is Over

A modern, vampire tale: a man (played by Cristobal Tapia Montt) enters a small town looking for a woman. Instead, he finds trouble: a young thug who does what he wants because of who his father is; and the thug's father, a high-ranking police officer who will do anything to protect his son. Father and son commit a heinous crime that they try to cover up, but "The Stranger" has terrible secrets of his own that will threaten to spill the blood of many who live in the town.

My most memorable, movie moment of "The Stranger" was the start of the closing credits. I was so happy that it ended and my suffering was over. Why did I not stop the movie earlier? Because I was watching it with three other peopleÂ…otherwise this movie would have been stopped at the 20 minute mark.

A badly written script (almost every line has the word "f*@k" or some variant of it, telling me that the writer/director doesn't have the skill to create tense, gripping dialogue without the crutch of curse words; characters who do things that make no sense; pacing that is off), and acting that belongs in high school plays completely wreck a good story. If you're looking for a movie to watch while folding your laundry and playing with your phone and checking out the sale items on the local CVS flier, then this movie is for you!
