Is he a savior or a killer?

IFC Midnight’s The Stranger, which is produced by Eli Roth and directed by Guillermo Amoedo, is now available on VOD. If you’re considering whether to check it out, we have a new clip, as well as a trailer, below.

The Stranger stars Luis Gnecco, Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, and Aaron Burns.

The synopsis:

Amoedo shows a deft ability to turn a bloodthirsty monster movie on its head, into a slow-burn, character-driven film. The Stranger takes its time, building the tension through occasional flashbacks and having the audience sympathize with Peter, who grew up not knowing his father. Peter, like the audience, is kept largely in the dark about his father’s motives or even what he is… because he’s certainly not human. What is apparent is the chaos his dad’s return has on the small town, especially a member of the police force and his violence-prone son.

The Stranger is ultimately about family, the legacy we pass on to our children and the lengths we go to protect and ensure their survival, no matter how dark and deadly they might become.
