The Intruder is a delightful use of the conventions of melodrama to subvert traditional horror archetypes.
58
The film is so full of jump scare fake-outs and shout-at-the-screen moments, it neglects to build sustained suspense — a far worse sin than its lack of logic, which can actually be kind of fun.
50
An entirely too manipulative, too obvious couple-in-jeopardy thriller, and a fun “bad” movie.
50
A B-movie with a few thrills and plenty of inane dialogue.
50
The whole thing would be more fun, you start to feel, if Intruder just committed fully to the schlocky midnight-movie glory of it all; let Quaid’s lawn-mowing wingnut swing that ax not just for soft vulnerable body parts, but the stars.
40
A cookie-cutter thriller that takes its time getting to the (sorta) good stuff, it's for die-hards only.
40
Basically, a lot of things happen; not interesting or believable things, but, hey, there's movement and action.
30
The Intruder rings incredibly hollow.
20
The Intruder offers few surprises of any sort.

Washington Post
There is a faintly greenish fuzz of bread mold at the edges of every frame of this stale exercise in psychological horror (subgroup: homeowner hell).
