the prices aren't the only things getting cut in half in this store!
For me, the mysterious part of it all is the title of the film. Why is it called Intruder? I've heard of intruders, they invade homes, they usually look for something. Intruders usually don't show up late at night in a supermarket ( that wouldn't make the market so super, now would it? ) Intruder, my arse, you have a mad slasher on your hands...while you still have your hands. And if your dipping into this, thinking that it's another one of those horror flicks where the gross stuff is done off camera, just because it's a low budget movie, you'd better think twice: Intruder delivers the goods in GRAPHIC VIOLENCE. This gory shocker just may put all the other wannabe slasher movies in its place. Our story opens up in local supermarket getting ready to close. The young female cashier is harassed by one of the final customers for the night, an old flame. A little dispute finds him exited out of the building, ah, they were closing anyways. Shortly afterward, a body count begins to rise within the store, a VERY HIGH body count. The deaths are downright grisly, brutal, and not for the faint of heart...okay? You've been warned. There were even a couple of scenes where I almost looked away, and I thought I'd seen them all, since I've seen so many in this genre. Hey! You have to hand it to the deli department, they have so many gadgets that can be used as weapons. Meat slicer, an army of knives and meat cleavers, oh man! Killer is going to be on cloud nine in this store. In my opinion, this is one of the best 80's slasher flicks, and I recommend it to all that are a fan of Sam Raimi, the great guy who brought you Evil Dead and Spiderman 2002. Oh, and don't forget to lock your doors...you can never be too safe these days.
