This year marks the five-year anniversary of the horror movie, "The Strangers: Prey at Night", and the three strangers are returning to Kentucky where most of the movie was filmed for a really cool event.

Five years ago, I remember watching the movie "The Strangers: Prey at Night" because the first movie terrified me. The first "Strangers" movie, in my opinion, had one of the scariest lines in movie history. When Liv Tyler's character asked why the strangers were doing this to them, one of them said "Because you were home." I remember thinking, wait, I'm at home! It made the movie feel eerily real. Not to mention, it scared the crap out of me. (Caution: There are some violent moments in the clip below after that line is delivered)

The follow-up movie, had that same kind of feel, only I feel there was a lot more suspense and scares. I really enjoyed the movie. I watched it not too long ago, and had the same knot in my stomach that I had watching it the first time, five years ago. You really find yourself rooting for the main characters, but you are still somewhat intrigued by the strangers themselves.

One thing about the movie that I didn't realize was that some of it was actually filmed in Kentucky. Some of the biggest scenes were filmed at Kincaid Lake State Park in Falmouth, Kentucky. This includes that infamous pool scene, which we will talk about in a second. Now, five years later, the strangers will be returning to Kentucky for a pretty cool event that you might want to check out.
