Intruders is great, and then it falls apart in the final act, and becomes something less. That's kind of true, because most of what comes before is better than what is found in that final act, but it still works, faults and all.
Don't let the naysayers scare you off of this one.
*It really is better to see Intruders without knowing too much about it. I'd say that if you like Home Invasion Thrillers, then you should skip reading any reviews (even this one), and avoid watching the trailer, and just give it a rent. If you don't mind reading details about a movie that could potentially ruin its twists, then read on.
|NOPE. NOT GOING OUT THERE.|
|DAMN SHE LOOKS WICKED.|
|"HELLO, BOYS. I HOPE YOU ENJOY YOUR STAY."|
We knew this was going to be a Home Invasion/Survival flick, but we didn't know how it would play out, or that it would be so entertaining to watch.
|IT DIDN'T PLAY OUT VERY WELL FOR HIM THOUGH, DID IT?|
The dialogue was pretty naturalistic in this one too, and you can tell that the director handled the actors well, because as much talking as there was in this movie, it never felt dull, forced, or over-the-top.
|THEY NEVER SAW IT COMING.|
That said, Intruders still does it better than most, even if it doesn't do it quite as good as some others.
|THAT KID LOOKS THRILLED TO BE IN THAT PICTURE.|
|BILL HAVERCHUCK GREW UP CREEPY.|
Give it a rent, and enjoy.
Intruders is available now on VOD.
Beth Riesgraf, it's nice to meet you.
