Have you ever watched a film trailer that left you with more questions than answers? That was us after we watched the trailer for Netflix’s upcoming movie, The Strays. In the film, Ashley Madekwe (Salem) stars as an upper-middle-class woman whose perfectly crafted life begins to unravel with the arrival of two shadowy figures in her town. There is so much going on in this trailer, and it honestly has us curious and creeped out all at once.
A perfect life… a perfect lie…
We shouldn’t be surprised that the trailer for The Strays has us feeling this way. I mean, any movie that starts with overly pleasant music and idyllic picturesque neighborhoods tends to go the opposite of how we think it will (See Don’t Worry Darling). This trailer gives nothing away; every part of it had us asking what was happening. We still don’t know, and we’ve watched it a lot.
One thing we know is that Madekwes’s character is hiding something. Those two shadowy figures seem to know her, and it’s clear they are set on upending her perfect life. Whatever life she was leading in the past has caught up with her, and we are beyond intrigued to watch this all unfold.
