    This film was alright but it certainly wasn't groundbreaking or anything. Intruder was a fairly typical slasher, and the fact that it was released in 1989, about the time the entire slasher craze was over, is pretty telling; this movie sort of sums up the entire reason that the slasher subgenre was falling out of fashion- it had gotten boring.
    Intruder isn't exactly a BAD film, but it's extremely unoriginal. The plot is very basic and straightforward, there's really nothing going for it, and the only reason it exists is to serve as a backdrop for the killings. And the killings aren't all that spectacular either. They're mostly rehashes of scenes from earlier slashers and special effects, while adequate, do nothing to save them.
    Everything that happens plot-wise is more than obvious and the writers rely heavily on the whole 'final girl' thing, which doesn't really work out that well.
    Despite all of this, Intruder is still pretty fun and while I wouldn't re-watch it, it's not a bad way to waste an hour and a half. Just make sure you have a beer or five close at hand.

    I guess I'm dead :P

    I really hated this film until near the end of the second act. I was only frightened by a couple jump scares but that was it. I didn't see the last five minutes so can anybody tell me? Please?

    8.3/10.
