March 30, 2012
Gets disappointingly literal with what proves to be a goofy psychological story.

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

"Intruders'' looks great and has a promising opening, but this atmospheric Spanish psychological thriller is otherwise pretty underwhelming.

Why do so many horror movies that begin with promise fall apart in the final act?

If you don't guess the big twist in the first 30 minutes, "Intruders" is half of a good movie. If you do, it's about a third of a good movie.

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.

Little happens in the first act, and most of what transpires in the second will be contradicted by the events of the third. Doesn't leave much of a net sum.

Its muddled, overambitious story leaves us unsatisfied - you might even say hollow.

Owen is a good actor stuck in a subpar creepfest that makes no good use of his gravitas and talents.

"Intruders" promises much but delivers relatively little.

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

Intruders is never scary, and it's so implausible and uninvolving that even when it's being explained, it is still unconvincing. Talky psychology is a poor substitute for supernatural thrills.

All Hollow Face -- a black-hooded, vaporous shape -- likes to do, apparently, is hover over sleeping bodies and snatch a leg or two.

With nothing tangible at stake, Intruders is just an aggregation of influences that's as blank as its bogeyman.
January 24, 2012
As these parallel supernatural mysteries begin to meld into one another, all semblance of credibility dissolves, leaving behind an impenetrable and frustrating fog of unanswered questions.

Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's technical skills are impressive, but this psychological chiller loses traction in the over-explanatory concluding stretch.

[This] attempt to marry a monster movie with high-toned themes of storytelling and memory yields something more generic than it sounds.
