In a place called...Midvale, a sanitarium becomes minus one patient, when one of those interred breaks out of said loony bin after dispatching security specialists there and heads off to looking for the love of his life. Our disturbed individual is obsessively jealous, slaying anyone whom he fears may be endangering his relationship with his current girlfriend. Can the police catch him before he catches up to her?

The usual nutcase escapes from the usual mental hospital. The usual small town cops do their usual bumbling as the usual idiots are massacred in the usual style while the usual blonde in the usual peril screams her head off.
The only remotely UNusual element here is the false-protagonist "twist" near the end, which is entirely unsatisfying. Despite fleeting moments of fairly potent violence, DEADLY INTRUDER is a cliché-ridden, barely marginal outing from the high tide of similar fare offered up during the 80s. When a film presents Danny Bonaduce for star power, you know your in for a sh--ty little cupcake.
Forgettable, common, and pretty crummy...avoid. 3.5/10
