|Review by Joshua Gravel|
Intruders starts off as a seemingly run of the mill home invasion flick, but builds upon that now common premise to deliver a taut thriller with some well thought out twists.
I made the mistake of watching the trailer for Intruders prior to watching the actual movie, which does the film a disservice, by giving away several key elements. With these plot points revealed completely out of context, the story looks both implausible and hokey when in reality, writers T.J. Cimfel and David White did a pretty good job of providing characters with enough back story to justify their actions.
First time feature director Adam Schindler delivers a tight story with a strong cast led by Beth Riegraf as Anna and a striking dramatic turn by comedic actor Martin Starr as one of the titular intruders. Overall I was impressed with Intruders and look forward to future projects from those involved.
I would definitely recommend that you check out Intruders, as it is a quality independent film with some interesting characters and is a tensely plotted thriller.
