Intruders tells the parallel tale of two families whose lives are thrown off track by menacing apparitions: in Spain, a mother protects her son from a faceless stranger; in the UK, a young girl has terrifying dreams of Hollowface, a demon who becomes a real danger.

A murky, loosely-defined story about a hallucinatory evil that spans generations. Clive Owen is great fun, as usual, and there are some interesting sequences - but overall, "Intruders" is a pretty boring bout of the same-old.
Very uneven horror film is well-shot with a capable cast, and manages a handful of effective sequences. But the clunky plot fails to generate any kind of momentum, leaving the whole thing just sort of dull and forgettable.
Less a horror film about the bogeyman than a scary, psychological character study about what creates it. Intruders is so lyrical in both its stunning use of montage and the carefully rendered metaphor of fear and loss that it's like a tone poem, akin to the work of Guillermo del Toro. As an evaluation of how one chooses to protect their kids, it's as insightful as it's haunting. A very underrated film.
Not bad but not very good either. Owen is fine as is some of the other actors. Unfortunately van Outen is completely wasted as the clueless mother. The twist at the end was ok but the soppy ending felt way to sweet for my taste. Good for a rainy sunday night if you like your scares light and easy.
The first 5 minutes are genuinely absorbing, despite some CGI that looks lifted right out of 1996's "The Frighteners," with a dark and dream-like mood similar to survival-horror video games like "Silent Hill." Then Clive Owen enters the picture and it all goes downhill. Clive tries his best but the screenplay forces a hodgepodge of inane ideas that feel cribbed from the M. Night Shyamalan playbook.
Fresnadillo is a filmmaker who is truly borderless. His films are perfect representations of the planet as melting pot of language, colors, origins, and though they have specific settings, they could be anywhere and are fascinating in that he refuses to treat one culture as inherently different from another. The film isn't a masterpiece, but his movies will always be more interesting than most genre films.
