Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This dark thriller offers lots of suspense-filled moments filled with unnerving twists. Thanks to good writing, what seems like a simple story reveals itself to be a complicated cat-and-mouse game that is easy to get caught up in. Meanwhile, Dehaan's strong performance as the intelligent, misogynistic, and sadistic stalker makes it creepier at every turn. If you enjoy horror stories, you will find The Stranger to be entertainingly addictive.
