When Strangers Appear is a 2001 psychological thriller film starring Radha Mitchell (Pitch Black, High Art), Barry Watson (TV's Seventh Heaven) and Josh Lucas (The Deep End).
When Beth (Mitchell) opens her remote roadside diner, she expects another slow day. But almost immediately, Jack (Watson), a handsome drifter burst in, bleeding and on the run. Within moments, the three surfers Jack claims are chasing him appear and the stage is set for a deadly game of cat and mouse as Beth must decide whom to trust and whom to fear. The film features the single "Calling On" from Weta in its soundtrack.
