Movie Info

Gory slasher mayhem from Evil Dead co-writer Scott Spiegel, this claustrophobic thriller is set entirely in a small supermarket, whose owner is preparing to go out of business. This doesn't sit too well with the film's resident maniac, who busily butchers the night crew using the tools of the trade (hooks, axes, knives, power tools and so on). The victims include Spiegel's pal and Evil Dead director Sam Raimi as the butcher-shop buffoon who meets a nasty end on a meathook; even Raimi's favorite

A hidden slasher gem that manages to make use of its single setting story.

Audience Reviews for Intruder

Scott Spiegel is from the Raimi and Coen gang, obviously not as successful but in many ways he's just as talented behind the camera. Honestly, some of his compositions are amazing - I thought the same thing when I first saw Dusk till Dawn 2. The structure of Intruder is perfect, the story, gore, setting, everything, is just right for the genres. Somebody please give the man a bigger budget and let him do his thing! Classic horror films, this is a must!

If you've seen damn near every slasher movie, Intruder is a pleasantly solid entry in the genre. GREAT gore and kills.

Scott Spiegel's Intruder is one of the 1980's last great Slasher flick that came out at the end of the decade. While many Slasher franchises were recycling ideas, and many countless ripoffs were filmed, Intruder is one of the better of the bunch. Of all the slashers that in the last years of the 80's, Intruder has got to be the most original, the most grotesque and overall the best of the decades most popular genre of horror. Intruder was directed by Scott Spiegel who previously worked with Sam Raimi on Evil Dead 2. Like I previously stated, Intruder is a great slasher film, and is one of final slasher greats of the 80's. The film boasts some very impressive kills scenes with plenty of blood and gore to appeal to the most die hard Slasher film fan. The key aspect of the film is the special effects, I personally think that these are some of the best special effects I've seen in a slasher film in quite some time. Like I said, the kills are great and will definitely appeal Slasher fans. There's also a good mix of suspense and humor in the films plot, and Scott Spiegel has crafted a solid Slasher film. Intruder is a fine Slasher film that signaled the end of 1980's slashers. The film is great, and if you've seen the countless early 80's Slashers, and want something refreshing, then this is a great film to watch. This is a definite Slasher classic that is a must see for every horror fan, and with great gore effects, and awesome kills; it really makes Intruder a film that separates itself from most Slashers. This film is an awesome experience for horror fans.
