According to production notes,[2] the film was inspired by an event from director Bryan Bertino's childhood: a stranger came to his home asking for someone who was not there, and Bertino later found out that empty homes in the neighborhood had been broken into that night.[3] In interviews, Bertino stated he was "very impressed" with some of the theories circulating on the Internet about the "true events" the movie is allegedly based on, but said his main inspiration was Helter Skelter, a true crime book about the 1969 Manson family murders.[4][5]. There has also been some speculation that the film was also based in part on The Keddie Murders, which took place in a small cabin in rural California in 1981, but whether or not that crime was an inspiration for the film has never been verified.

In another interview, Liv Tyler revealed that in Bertino's original script, "You saw a lot more of the strangers. It was much more of a Manson-esque experience."[3]

Contrary to popular belief, the events depicted in The Strangers are not based on one solid case, and the characters and events are in fact fictional.
