Synopsis

Storyline:
Martin, a drifter, arrives in a small town and asks about a woman named Ana. Peter, a teenager, directs him to a cemetery, but three thugs harass him. Peter interrupts them as they savagely beat Martin, but then flees. De Luca orders them cover up the crime. Peter convinces his mother, Monica, to perform first aid, which Martin refuses, saying that his blood is ‘contagious’. When De Luca returns to bury the body and finds it missing, and suspects Peter. He sends Caleb to take care of the situation, but before they can kill Peter, Martin kills them. De Luca interrogates Peter. and sets Peter on fire. As Monica calls an ambulance, Martin recites a Latin blessing and rubs his blood on Peter. Later, at the hospital, Peter miraculously recovers and is discharged. The police capture Martin and make Monica, a nurse, perform a transfusion from Martin to Caleb. Martin begs her not to do so and insists that his blood must be blessed to prevent ‘infection’.
User Reviews: Must admit the trailer looked promising for The Stranger and the movie certainly had some interesting elements. I’ll avoid spoilers however from the cover alone you can gleam a hint. It was really strange for me however as it almost seemed like some of the cast had their voices dubbed over, this was very strange as others sounded fine and I don’t know why that happened but it was off putting as some of the cast subsequently (whether related or not) just seemed not to be doing a great job acting. So we ended up with a strange movie with a mixed cast of almost amateurs and some pros, very strange. I would have liked to know more of the how and why and less of the rather forced plot devices and characters. A shame as there really were some good elements to this horror movie however it all ended up a bit all over the show despite good efforts.
