Martin (Cristobal Tapia-Montt) is a stranger that comes to town to kill his wife Ana when he finds out she has been dead for years.   Martin is infected with a dangerous disease that makes him addicted to blood (aka vampire) that gives him amazing healing powers and a dangerous aversion to sunlight.  He is brutally attacked by three thugs lead by Caleb and his supposed death is covered up by Caleb’s father- a police lieutenant, but Martin is rescued by a kid named Peter.  It sets up a chain reaction that leads to more violence and blood.  Writer/ Director Guillermo Amoedo has created an intense vampire movie which was filmed in Chile.  It is a well cast movie with a good script. THE STRANEGR sucks you in as it unfolds through the events in the present and flashbacks as it spins and entertaining vampire movie worth at least a rental plus I wait to see the director’s next movie.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES:

WELCOME TO CHILEWOOD is about the birth and growth of making movies in Chile for the international and home market plus they also touch upon making THE STRANGER in English for the world market

FINAL ANALYSIS:  THE STRANGER is an entertaining vampire movie that is at least worth a rental and Guillermo Amoedo is a director to watch if he creates another horror movie as intense as this one.
