Intruders: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

Agoraphobic Anna (Beth Riesgraf), is mourning because of the death of his brother. With his condition, she decided not to attend the funeral. Adding more to his problem is when three thieves sneak inside her house. They immediately captured Anna as she is afraid to leave the house. However, the burglars didn't know that Anna has a bag of tricks and can turn the house into a giant trap.  

The film has a very interesting premise, but it fails to capitalize the ideas to make it more thrilling. It can really make an impact and inject fresh new blood with the horror genre but can't seem to hold on to the intensity of the first half. The back story ruined it a bit as the characters tend to make irrational decisions that make them look dumb. It also fell short with the brutality and excitement that we expect the film would deliver. 

Director Adam Schindler made a great use of the small location to build tension at the start. He also had an outstanding cast that knows how to deliver. However, the second-half really was a meltdown when the mysteries started to unfold one by one and that really ruined the momentum. But all praise goes to Beth Riesgraf, who really performed well. 

Overall, Intruders is exciting but a little disappointing. They squandered the opportunity to bring in new dimension to a horror picture. Beth Riesgraf is a gem, and I hope that Intruders will be her stepping stone to get her to the big league.
