Saw this on TV in the early 80's
3 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this film, titled as "The Intruder," in, about 1987, after taping it off a local Sacramento TV station late at night. I recall that it was a well-made suspense film. Before IMDb existed, I looked for mention of this movie in film reference books, but to no avail. I'm surprised to learn it was based on a Dean Koontz novel. I think the tape may still be at my parent's house! I only have a vague recollection of the plot but I will continue writing as I just learned of the 10 line minimum for IMDb (I guess brevity is not the soul of movie commenting). I remember being impressed with the economy of the storytelling - in this way, and because it takes place on the road, it reminded me of Spielberg's "Duel," and in retrospect, this movie was surely influenced by "Duel." Anyway, it was good stuff, and hopefully I'll be able to find the movie and re-watch it. Cheers!
