The trailer for The Strange Ones suggests that the film will earn its title. Ominous and filled with dread, not much of the film’s mysteries can be gleaned. That’s probably for the best (this is a flick you want to see with few expectations). Magic Mike heartthrob Alex Pettyfer stars in this dark and mysterious thriller – wherein there is a lot more going on than meets the eye.
Mysterious events surround two travelers (Pettyfer and James Freedson-Jackson), presumably brothers, as they make their way across a remote American landscape. On the surface all seems normal, but what appears to be a simple vacation soon gives way to a dark and complex web of secrets and lies.
