The Strays on Netflix: trailer, story and more information revealed.
Netflix released the official trailer for The Strays on January 26, 2023, providing a look at the terrifying scenarios that will happen in the new film. The trailer begins with a haunting background soundtrack and a narrator saying:
“Thank you for visiting our house.”
The video then shows many disturbing scenes with a boy and a woman that the protagonist Neve seems to meet often. It has a disturbing, almost surreal tone, which will appeal to lovers of atmospheric horror and psychological thrillers. According to Netflix’s Tudum, here’s a brief synopsis of the film:
“Does Neve have the ideal life? Or is it a perfect lie? In Nat Martello-British White’s social thriller The Strays, a woman’s carefully constructed upper-middle-class existence begins to crumble when two strangers come to town. White’s Martello directorial debut, starring Ashley Madekwe (Salem, The Umbrella Academy), delves into the interconnections between class identity and internalized racism.
Viewers can anticipate a highly atmospheric psychological horror thriller that tackles some of the most intricate parts of the human psyche based on the official trailer and description. While the trailer lacks blood and violence, the effect depends on character, mood, and tone.
