Never Talk to Strangers has all the familiar elements of your run-of-the-mill erotic thriller. There’s the repressed-yet-sexy criminal psychologist. The mysterious, possibly dangerous hunk. Sexual interludes that flirt with violence. What sets Strangers apart from all the other low-budgeters in your video store’s fatally attractive section, however, is that it boasts big-name stars. But don’t let that fool you. Knowing both actors are capable of decent performances, viewers might feel like this limp movie is just a cruel tease. C+
