Jason watches "The Strangers"

As part of my effort to find a theater not playing "Sex and the City".

Anyway, "The Strangers" is a pretty good but not great horror flick. I appreciate that they don't rely on intentionally dumb teenagers or gratuitous "torture porn" gore. It's a small cast, a stripped-down plot, and a well executed slow build. A young couple are trapped in a house and attacked by three masked strangers. Allegedly based on (speculation about) true events, and they got the scares right. Yeah, it was okay, but not great. It was a good waste of 90 minutes.
