The arrival of a mysterious stranger with "contagious blood" sets off a violent chain of events in Guillermo Amoedo's unconventional horror film
Guillermo Amoedo's vampire thriller is unlikely to get a commercial boost with its ungainly title prominently featuring the name of its producer. The Chilean director has populated his Canada-set film with Chilean actors delivering English-language performances, resulting in a disorienting feeling that further detracts from the already stilted proceedings. Tamping down its vampire tropes with murky plotting and a sluggish pace, Eli Roth Presents The Stranger lacks the visceral excitement necessary to attract any but the most undemanding genre fans.
The titular character is Martin (Cristobal Tapia Montt), who shows up late one night at the small town home of sixteen-year-old Peter (Nicolas Duran) and his nurse mother (Alessandra Guerzoni). The haggard-looking stranger inquires as to the whereabouts of his ex-love Ana (Lorenza Izzo), only to be informed that she's dead.
After finding her grave in the local cemetery, Martin, offering no resistance and clearly harboring a death wish, is beset upon by a gang of teens who brutally beat and stab him, leaving him for dead. The attackers are led by Caleb (Ariel Levy), whose police lieutenant father, De Luca (Luis Gnecco) quickly covers up the crime.
