This film was written and directed by Guillermo Amoedo, a screenwriter who has collaborated on several scripts with Eli Roth (who presents this film), and offers a tale that sounds like an attempt to reinvigorate the vampire myth. Scream Factory will release it in both DVD and blu-ray versions, both of which will feature the same set of extras. Read on for all horrific hemoglobin-slinging details, including cover art and a list of extras…
Eli Roth Presents
A Film by Guillermo Amoedo
Available on Blu-ray and DVD October 6th, 2015

“Though the full title of… The Stranger bears the name of… horror specialist Eli Roth (Hostel), it has its own singular, and gruesome, distinctions.” – The New York Times
Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel, The Green Inferno) presents the riveting directorial debut of writer Guillermo Amoedo (Aftershock, The Green Inferno, Knock Knock) with this macabre and gruesome tale set in a small Canadian town. Scream Factory, in partnership with IFC Midnight, will bring The Stranger, the tale of a mysterious man whose search for his wife plunges the community into a bloodbath, to Blu-ray and DVD on October 6th, 2015. The Stranger comes loaded with bonus features, including Amoedo’s short film The Fourth Horseman, the new featurette Welcome to Chilewood, theatrical trailers and more.

A mysterious stranger, Martin (Cristóbal Tapia-Montt), arrives seeking to kill his wife Ana (Lorenza Izzo, The Green Inferno, Aftershock) who suffers from a very dangerous disease that makes her as addicted to human blood as he is. But when he discovers that Ana has been dead for a couple of years, Martin decides to commit suicide to definitively eradicate this peculiar disease which imbues his blood with healing powers. Before he can do it, however, Martin is brutally attacked by three local thugs, lead by the son of a corrupt police lieutenant, Caleb. The incident suddenly initiates a chain reaction that plunges the community into a bloodbath.
