The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Cast: Beth Riesgraf, Jack Kesy, Martin Starr (Dead Snow), and Rory Culkin
PANIC ROOM meets YOU'RE NEXT in this gripping home invasion horror-thriller, full of shocks and surprises. After three criminals, including fan favorite Martin Starr, break into a supposedly empty house, they find themselves in a deadly game of cat and mouse with the occupant, a shy young woman with a few nasty tricks of her own to play on the invaders.
As the film opens you can immediately tell that something isn't right with Anna who is taking care of her sick brother. The early dialogue hints at the horrible family secrets that helped in molding Anna into the fragile young woman she is today. When three criminals break into her home shortly after her brother passes away looking for money, Anna makes a run for the front door and to safety but she stops at the doorway because she has agoraphobia. What happens next will shock the audience as she turns the tables on her captors in a disturbing and shocking way. And as the film moves along Anna and her disturbing family secrets come to the surface.
"Intruders" is a home invasion film that will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time. In the beginning Anna looked like such an innocent victim that you really feel sorry for and then you get to see what she is capable of. Anna has been in the house for 10 years, ever since her father died but when the three criminals break in they bring everything from her past back again and they wish they hadn't. This is one young lady you don't want to mess with.
I really enjoyed this thriller and was rooting for Anna all the way even though I knew how unstable she was because this guys asked for it. The acting was excellent, Beth Riesgraf was brilliant as Anna, she brought out all of Anna's emotions perfectly. The rest of the cast all gave terrific performances as well including Rory Culkin and Martin Starr.
One of the coolest things about the film was Anna's house, I am not going to give all the surprises away but let me just say it was laid out. "Intruders" to me was an original, disturbing and shocking thrill ride that had me hooked right from the start and it kept me glued to the screen until the very end. Credit has to go out to Writers, T.J. Cimfel and David White as well as Director, Adam Schindler, they have taken the old home invasion theme and brought some originality by creating such a suspenseful and tension-filled thriller that is both frightening and engaging. "Intruders" hits cinemas and VOD January 15, I highly recommend checking it out as soon as possible.
