The Intruder

Critics Consensus

The Intruder might appeal to fans of shout-at-the-screen cinema, but this thriller's ludicrous plot robs it of suspense -- and undermines Dennis Quaid's suitably over-the-top performance.

  • Iit's high time Quaid truly embraced the role of a real horror-movie psycho, and the key pleasure of... The Intruder lies in watching the actor bounce among extremes of charm, anxiety, chumminess, and madness.

  • You know thrillers. Five-minute plots have a way of dragging familiar ideas into 2-hour narratives. This one has been done to death.

  • The real secret weapon of "The Intruder" is the intruder himself, played by Dennis Quaid in a completely unhinged performance of true lunacy.

    May 3, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Yes, "The Intruder" is formulaic and you've seen versions of it before. But the game cast and opportunities for interactivity - this is a movie that invites you to shout at the screen - make it a fun if predictable ride.

  • Were this not a depiction of a stalker but of an overly present neighbour, the camera's incessant reveals of Charlie ominously appearing in places he shouldn't would be almost comical in how belaboured they are.

    May 2, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • This new take on an old idea won't challenge The Stepfather for primacy in the thriller subgenre. In fact, it's a lot closer to the bottom of the barrel than the rim at the top.
