A terrifically fun highlight of 80's slashers!
14 September 2006 | by (Brentwood, USA) – See all my reviews

Surprisingly good stalk 'n' slash movie from Scott Speigel (long time associate of director Sam Raimi) was probably the last true slasher flick of the '80's.

Grocery store workers are set to do the night shift when an uninvited guest drops in and the employees begin to be butchered.

An effective dark sense of humor, stylish camera work, and eye-popping gore FX (from the makeup masters at KNB FX no less!) uplifts this movie above the normal slasher fair. Granted, the story of Intruder isn't exactly brilliant, but it serves well as a frame work for some highly energized thrills and blood-letting. Also worth mentioning is the atmospheric sense of dread that runs through out the movie.

The cast isn't half bad, some even make for some quirky characters. Genre fans will notice plenty of familiar faces in the cast. Director Sam Raimi appears as the butcher, younger brother Ted Raimi as a produce worker, Renee Estevez as a cashier, Dan Hicks as the store manager, and even B movie hero Bruce Campbell cameos as a cop.

All around Intruder makes for great fun for the slasher fans, exactly how this gem managed to escape me for so long I don't know! Not for the faint of heart.

*** 1/2 out of ****
