This is ... an intelligent, scary little movie. Because it's smart enough to know what's really scary is what's inside us.

It's a pleasure to find that Mr. Fresnadillo has assumed the mantle of horror classicist to make "Intruders," using shadows and directorial sleights of hand to coax forth its slow-building scares rather than just pouring on the usual guts and gore.

Horror has been so dumbed down in recent years that it's a minor miracle when a movie in this genre actually gives you something to ponder, something more than omnipotent nuts-with-knives or teenagers trapped in abandoned summer camps.

Plays with classic horror elements of rain, bony monster fingers, vertiginous camera angles, and assorted shout-outs to Pan's Labyrinth.

A movie about childhood nightmares that plays too much like an actual, incoherent nightmare to make a good movie, Intruders is a psychodrama divided against itself.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Even when the terror feels muted, it still maintains a sense of dread, maybe in part because children are involved.

Intruders has many familiar elements, but it's not a problem; the film uses its archetypes wisely, and never glibly.

Izán Corchero and Ella Purnell play the children naturally, and in telling his parallel tales Fresnadillo creates and sustains a vaguely threatening atmosphere.

Fresnadillo favours creepy suspense over gore resulting in a polished psychological drama.

Though short on shocks and mild in horror terms, Fresnadillo's fantasy has a lot of heart and sincerity in equal measure.

The twist will likely infuriate many, but Fresnadillo's effort to give audiences something different has to be appreciate. Owen is excellent.
