1 Hour and 23 Minutes (83 Minutes)






If this one does not scare you, you're already dead!






At a time when the slasher has tired and simultaneously deteriorated from the plethora of mediocre relevant films, comes this nice film be a cool oasis for fans of the genre. Despite the lack of prwtotypiwn the "Intruder" manages to gain our favour by pressing more on extremely outrageous murder from the toughest we have seen in the area.

The events unfolding in a super market during the night and in particular after the closure when employees engage in standard tasks for the next day. In the first 30 minutes watching the initial drafting and later physical attack of a alitampoyra in the former of which works at the super market. The cheeky young eventually removed from her colleagues in a violent way and the shop permanently locked for the day. From this point onwards employees are victims of a bloodthirsty maniac who secretly soylatsarei in store killing his victims with the most barbaric ways.

Horror Trivia

The original title of the film was "The Night Crew" but the distribution company wanted to give him a name more "walking" in order to make slasher and more commercial. Eventually he was chosen the most appropriate title indeed "Intruder".

Apart from the relatively boring and insipid first 30 minutes, the rest of the film go swimmingly, especially in the field of violence that is the quintessence of the slasher. Although the effects are not always conclusive, however, manage to shock at scenes of lethal, making us remember for long this film. Special mention deserves to be made at the headquarters of the actors where we meet the eccentric filmmaker Sam Raimi known for legendary trilogy of Evil Dead movies, Spiderman, etc. Remarkable is the presence of his friend Raimi, Dan Hicks with a masterfully prepared for cubic film interpretation and there is also a cameo appearance of Bruce Cambpell, legendary protagonist of "Evil Dead". Generally all the actors stand well considering the psilochabalediariki mood that is employed in the film but without becoming comical. Beautiful addition constitute casual shots of the Moon in the pitch-black night sky giving little atmosphere in the "Intruder".

For the extremely low budget, the ' Intruder ' noted satisfactory performance causing temporary smiles to many fans of slasher, at a time when the genre was in perpetual decline. If they were a little more unpredictable, especially as to the identity of the offender, will surely gain more impressions. Definitely not a memorable film, but worth a check and if you're fond of that kind, I guess I should add it to your collection, if you haven't done so already.


Movie Highlights

  • A creepy melting machine head that despite the obvious placement of a fake head, the scene of shocking brutality keeps the Viewer.
  • A bloody hanging the victim into meat hook!
  • Stopping in the middle of a head with a meat cutting machine, the more shocking perhaps moment of film!

A plethora of very bloody murders, chabalediariki mood, his involvement always dear Sam Raimi, the closed environment of super market.


The predictable killer's identity, the uninterested and wearily first 30 minutes, a few non-realistic effects.
