Details about each character
This is the first invader we see in the movie. He appears as a kind man with good intentions and starts talking to Wen. They even play together for a while before the girl flees. Further, Leonard acts as the group leader, explaining their goal and methods to achieve it.
One of Wen’s dads, Eric, is the central character victimized by strangers. He sustains a concussion during the visitors’ break-in. Also, he becomes convinced that the upcoming apocalypse is real earlier than his husband.
Another head of the family and Eric’s partner, Andrew, is less trusting. He keeps trying to escape and isn’t willing to sacrifice anyone. In his opinion, the disasters shown by strangers are coincidental.
This is the seven-year-old daughter of Eric and Andrew. They adopted the girl and took her on vacation. She goes to play and catch grasshoppers, but Leonard approaches her to introduce himself. When the girl spots the three other strangers behind his back, she feels suspicious. However, her parents don’t take Wen’s warning seriously until the attackers come to their cabin.
One of the four intruders, Redmond becomes the first sacrifice in the movie. The other three foreseers beat him to death with his head covered in cloth.
Another companion of Leonard, this woman uses a hatchet-like weapon. Sabrina experiences a few attacks by family members. Which results in some tragic events.
A female invader described on Wikipedia, Adriane, also claims to have visions about the impending apocalypse. So she is sure about the necessity of sacrificing one of the family members.
These two people are a gay couple who adopted a child. Their sexual orientation plays a significant role in one of the movie’s plot twists. You can find more details about Eric and Andrew on Wikipedia in the plot section.
You may read on Wikipedia about Redmond’s previous interaction with the vacationing couple. Andrew recognizes him as a homophobic man who had once attacked him in a bar. That led to the assaulter's imprisonment. That fact evokes a strong sense of guilt in the rest of the invaders. However, they keep sticking to their apocalyptic visions.
There is a part about the girl on Wikipedia. Wen tries to warn her parents right before the intruders break in. In addition, later she manages to escape from the house into the woods. However, unfortunately, Leonard eventually finds her and brings the girl back to the cabin.
According to Wikipedia, Leonard is sure that a pandemic will spread and oceans will rise. The sky will fall, and darkness will engulf the earth. That’s what he tells the family after tying them up.
The four visitors are extremely determined and hold onto their predictions of the apocalypse. They remain untouched even when it turns out that Redmond wasn’t impartial at all. This moment is explained on Wikipedia. Sabrina, Adriane, and Leonard continue to demand a sacrifice despite Andrew’s recognition of Redmond.
