Right at the end of the 80's, a horror decade ruled by violent slashers, comes one of the coolest independent productions ever unleashed upon us, gorehounds: Scott Spiegel's "Intruder". It looks like the most basic and primitive slasher ever made (the story can be summarized in one phrase, namely, a group of supermarket employees are all brutally murdered by an unidentified maniac) but if you observe "Intruder" more closely, you'll find plenty of peculiar aspects that proves that this film definitely outshines the majority of late 80's horror films. First and foremost, the names involved in the production. Sam Raimi (by then very famous already for his "Evil Dead" films) and Lawrence Bender helped realizing "Intruder" and, even though the budget possibilities were still very limited, their presence is an added value. Secondly, there's the truly ingenious camera-work! The film takes entirely place in a familiar setting ? a local supermarket like every town has one ? but all the different and innovating camera angles add an unexpected amount creativity and playfulness. But the obvious element to love is, of course, the very high level of nasty and unhinged gore. One by one, all the cast members are killed in the most repulsive ways imaginable, using typical supermarket-attributes like meat hooks and garbage chutes. The murders are graphically shown, so this film isn't for the faint-hearted, but there's also a large amount of pitch-black humour to enjoy, as well as shockingly unhappy ending! "Intruder" is a must-see for all you sick puppies out there, just make sure you purchase an uncut version!!
