Intruders Reviews

March 30, 2012
One more bummer supernatural thriller, all too easy to figure out and with an arty overlay that mitigates pulpy enjoyment.
March 30, 2012
Joins the crowded subgenre of childhood boogeyman scare-fests that fail to find the spine-tingling power of what we think may be under the bed.
March 30, 2012
The mildly incoherent script simply doesn't generate enough suspense or provide enough scares to allow viewers to invest in its outcome.
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 30, 2012
Never compels the viewer to buy into any of this or to invest emotionally. And the scary stuff is only frighteningly bland.
March 30, 2012
The net effect is like what happens on Halloween when a teenager who's too old and much too tall to be out trick-or-treating knocks on your door wearing a painstakingly constructed but zero-scare-factor hobo costume.

"Intruders'' looks great and has a promising opening, but this atmospheric Spanish psychological thriller is otherwise pretty underwhelming.
March 30, 2012
It's impossibly labored and dull, a case study in the wrong way to make a horror movie.
March 29, 2012
An absolute mess, completely unsatisfying and a waste of time.
March 29, 2012
Why do so many horror movies that begin with promise fall apart in the final act?
March 29, 2012
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.
March 29, 2012
Tellingly, Fresnadillo didn't have a hand in writing this one, and although it intrigues initially, its underlying premise, revealed in a third act 'twist,' is so illogical and just plain stupid any good will is thrown out the window.

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.
March 29, 2012
When the most pulse-pounding moments involve a burning overcoat or a glimpse of an arm in a surveillance video, the threat of inner and outer violation remains more theoretical than palpable.
March 29, 2012
Its muddled, overambitious story leaves us unsatisfied - you might even say hollow.
March 29, 2012
Owen is a good actor stuck in a subpar creepfest that makes no good use of his gravitas and talents.
March 29, 2012
"Intruders" promises much but delivers relatively little.
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.
