Sources are telling us that Michaelbrent Collings’ brilliantly frightening spec STRANGERS is seriously heating up on the market. Based on the bestselling novel of the same title, also written by Collings, Strangers tells the story of a family who wakes up to discover they have been sealed inside their home.
