It appears to be joyful and ideal until Ashley Madekwe develops an itch, which intrigues the viewers with its aspect of mystery and suspense. The movie is a thriller, and as an educator’s ideal existence is upended, the pace steadily picks up.

‘The Strays’ Production And Release Date
Tristan Goligher from “Learn from Pete,” Valentina Brazzini, and Rob Watson from “Personal Shopper,” “The Power,” and “Gone Too Far” are the producers of this social horror drama.
Filming for “The Strays” began in September 2021 and continued the November of the same year. “The Strays” shooting was done in the United Kingdom. The film was expected to be launched by 2022, but due to the pandemic and other delays, it will now be launched in 2023.
The film will now be available for fans in the month of February 2023 on Netflix.
‘The Strays’ Cast
The lead role in the film Neve is played by Ashley Madekwe, who was earlier seen in several series and movies, including “Umbrella Academy,” “Revenge,” “Tell Me a Story,” “Tell Me Your Secrets,” and others. The role of Neve was meant for an older person, but when Ashley was hired for the role, it was changed. The director was impressed by the actor, who is originally from Croydon but now lives in Los Angeles. She would be apt for the role, he thought. Moreover, her age was enhanced with the help of make-up artists, who did a terrific job. So, accordingly, the ages of the children were lowered to match the age of the mother.
The titular “Strays” are played by the actor Jorden Myrie, who was seen in an earlier “Stephie,” and Bukky Bakray, seen in “Rocks.” Bukky previously won the BAFTA Rising Star Award for the drama series “Rocks” in 2020.
The director was impressed by the personality of Myrie. He saw him as a charismatic person who kept impressing the team with his acting skills.
Martello-White, the director, found in Bukky an intuitive actress who needed sparse guidance as she knew what she was doing.
The role of Sebastian in the horror film is played by Samuel Small, who is the son of Ashley. The role of the daughter is played by Maria Almeida, who will be seen as Mary, and the role of the husband, named Ian, is played by the actor Justin Salinge.
‘The Strays’ Plot And Trailer
Ashley Madekwe, also known as Neve, enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She was the deputy head of an affluent children’s private elite school in the area. Justin and Mary, her kids, attend the same school. Before Neve starts acting out, their mixed family appears to be the picture of perfection to an outsider. She lives in a beautiful home that she and her husband built after putting a lot of time and effort into it. She makes an effort to blend in with the upper-class community, but she has a questionable past that becomes apparent as the two young people come into her life.
The trailer’s opening sequence had traditional and upbeat music, which gradually changed as the mystery came to light with deafening bangs on metal. Ashley portrays Neve, who looks like a deranged, delusional lady who is trying to warn her family of the danger that is about to arrive at their door. She doesn’t appear to be taken seriously, though. There are sequences where two strangers invade the home with the goal to harm, although the motive behind this is unclear because it was not made apparent in the trailer. Ashley as Neve has a really attractive and promising appearance. She looked uneasy and weird due to the suspense from her background, and she did a superb job of persuading the audience that she was playing the part. One of the most eagerly anticipated movies of 2023, “The Strays,” will have viewers gasping for air with its spine-tingling tension and dread.
