SYNOPSIS

Sebuah thriller supernatural diselingingi kilas balik yang berlatar daerah barat laut Kanada. The Stranger menceritakan sosok misterius bernama Martin yang datang ke sebuah kota kecil yang tenang untuk membunuh istrinya, Ana, yang menderita penyakit berbahaya yang membuatnya kecanduan darah manusia—sama seperti dirinya. Tetapi, ketika ia sampai di sama, Martin menemukan bahwa Ana ternyata telah meninggal sejak lama, dan ia memutuskan untuk bunuh diri demi memastikan bahwa penyakit tersebut telah habis diberantas. Sayangnya, sebelum ia dapat melakukannya, Martin diserang dengan ganas oleh tiga preman kota tersebut yang dipimpin oleh Caleb, putra dari letnan polisi yang korup. Insiden ini pun memulai rangkaian kejadian yang akan membuat kota tersebut masuk dalam pertumpahan darah.

 

A supernatural thriller, laced by flashbacks, and set in Canada’s North-West, The Stranger turns on the mysterious titular figure of Martin, who comes to a small quiet town seeking to kill his wife Ana who suffers from a very dangerous decease that makes her addicted to human blood – just like himself-. However, when he arrives to the town, he discovers that Ana has been dead for a couple of years and decides to commit suicide to definitely eradicate this dangerous decease, but, before he can do it, Martin’s brutally attacked by three local thugs led by Caleb, the son of a corrupt police lieutenant, and the incident suddenly starts a snowball that will plunge the community into a bloodbath.

BLOGGERS REVIEW

HARIS FADLI PASARIBU (Tales from Motion Sickness)

The Stranger has an interesting premise and not so interesting execution. The snail pace only drags the film down instead of giving some nuances or depth. While the finale’s somewhat exciting, there’s almost nothing happening on the first and second act. Rating: ★★
