Decent Mystery for Fans of the Genre

Intruder, The (1933)

** (out of 4)

Bland "old dark house" type mystery but this one here takes place on a deserted island. The film starts off on a cruise ship where a man is murdered but before the killer can be located, the ship sinks with the survivors ending up on a strange island, which appears to be the home of a killer gorilla and a strange caveman. This is a pretty bizarre little film but the screenplay is so weak and so full of holes that I couldn't help but grow rather tired, which isn't good considering the movie runs just 57-minutes. The biggest problem is the story that seems to go in and out of focus as the movie never seems to really pay much attention to the actual mystery going on. Not only do we have the mystery but quite often it takes a back seat to various comedy attempts via a drunk, fighting characters and the strange Tarzan-like creature who keeps yelling throughout the film. The gorilla shows up in a couple scenes and to be honest, I'm still not really sure what he was up to. The inside of the cave with the two skeletons was pretty funny but in the end there's just not enough to keep this thing going. The performances are decent but nothing great. Griffith fans might be interested in checking out Wilfred Lucas in his small role here.
