Home-invasion horror flicks seem to be all the rage these days, with recent movies like Vacancy, 1408 and the upcoming Funny Games all earning their scares by tapping into that seemingly universal fear of being trapped in a house and terrorized by psychotic strangers.
The latest offering, appropriately enough, is Bryan Bertino's long-delayed The Strangers, starring Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman as a young couple who fall prey to three unkown assailants while staying at a vacation home. After lingering in limbo for far too long, the flick finally got a release date: May 30th, 2008.
The teaser trailer for The Strangers debuted today online. Check it out over at Yahoo! Movies.

Still here in Hall H where I'm being held captive on this sunny Saturday and eagerly awaiting the Marvel Studios presentation.
We already saw footage from Iron Man at the Paramount Panel Thursday. In cast you didn't hear, it's some pretty incredible stuff. Word is there will be more coming at this presentation.
We'll also be hearing about the Incredible Hulk, which began filming two weeks ago in Toronto.
A nice selection from the cast and crew is here as well including director Louis Letterrier, producer Avi Arad and castmembers Edward Norton and Liv Tyler.
The first piece of news is that this will be the first in a series of Hulk films.
Norton mentions that he was one of the writers of the script, which is news to me and seems to come as a surprise to most everyone else in the room.
They show a very brief still of concept art which looks pretty cool. Everyone goes crazy.
Now it's time for Iron Man...
Cast and crew comes out including John Favreau in the Iron Man T-shirt we were given Thursday.
Favreau introduces Terrence Howard, who he says can't wait to play War Machine if the series continues. Now Robert Downey, Jr. and Gwenyth Paltrow come out.
They show the footage again and everyone goes crazy.
"I'm sorry, could there have been a little more of me in that," says Downey, Jr.
"What you saw there was all practical photography," says Favreau.
Stan Lee has just been brought out, with Favreau confirming that Lee will have his usual cameo in the movie.
"I took Stan to lunch at the grill in Beverly Hills," says Downey, Jr. "Now he can get a table there any time he wants... Basically I just followed what he said about why Iron Man came into being."
Lee talks about the lunch they had and the great booth they were given.
"They were just happy I wasn't in the bathroom the whole time," says Downey, Jr. to big laughs.
Question of the possibility of an Avengers movie one day?
They say that is definitely the plan, which is met with big applause. Posted 07.28.07 by reelz
