Owen is always at least good, and here he's perfectly cast.
April 3, 2012
Spanish director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has created a fascinating hybrid -- and a moody, spooky movie besides.
March 30, 2012
With Intruders , Fresnadillo has made a small but quality film that will make you furrow your brow as much as bite your nails.
March 30, 2012
Defying science and religion both and striking at the darkest places in the psyche, it exposes the fragility of both life and of sanity.
March 30, 2012
More adventurous viewers will discover a challenging picture that bends reality in a subtle matter, taking an alternative path to sniff out some scares.
March 30, 2012
This is ... an intelligent, scary little movie. Because it's smart enough to know what's really scary is what's inside us.
March 29, 2012
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.
March 29, 2012
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.
March 27, 2012
Even when the terror feels muted, it still maintains a sense of dread, maybe in part because children are involved.
January 29, 2012
Intruders has many familiar elements, but it's not a problem; the film uses its archetypes wisely, and never glibly.
January 27, 2012
Izn Corchero and Ella Purnell play the children naturally, and in telling his parallel tales Fresnadillo creates and sustains a vaguely threatening atmosphere.
January 26, 2012
Fresnadillo favours creepy suspense over gore resulting in a polished psychological drama.
January 23, 2012
Though short on shocks and mild in horror terms, Fresnadillo's fantasy has a lot of heart and sincerity in equal measure.
October 6, 2011
Creepy and atmospheric, this is a well written and stylishly directed psychological thriller that's heightened by strong performances...

...promisingly spooky...
