An absolute mess, completely unsatisfying and a waste of time.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

A step down for its director, the film feels like an exercise in horror style, but it's not scary and the story is weak.
March 19, 2012
It's one of those instances where the idea probably sounded a whole lot scarier on paper.

I'm sorry, but Hollowface is not the next big horror icon. He's a guy in a hood with weird fingers. I think the fisherman slicker guy in I Know What You Did Last Summer was scarier.

Watchable only if you're at home, on the couch, with a strong cup of coffee in hand.

Intruders might be a horror story without undue histrionics, but it is, quite literally, in need of a face.
January 29, 2012
The twist is that the two stories are not concurrent, though in the end this doesn't make the film more coherent or plausible.
January 27, 2012
Alas that [the film] do[es]n't seem to understand that movie monsters need something more primally urgent about them than [it has] bothered to attach to Hollowface...
January 26, 2012
A highly conventional supernatural chiller in a very ordinary Hollywood-ised manner.
