Sound and Vision:
The image and sound of Intruders is decent but nothing special. Just like the movie.
- Deleted Scenes
- Making Of
Intruders is directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo who’s previous work includes the splendid zombie sequel 28 Weeks Later. Unfortunately, we won’t be calling Intruders “splendid”. The two storylines that get combined are all but surprising, the monster gets far too much screentime (and bad CGI) to be terrifying, and the plot twists can be seen coming from miles away. And that includes the ending.
The acting isn’t bad and there are a couple of decent scenes present, but it all feels just a bit too much like junkfood. It lacks seasoning and doesn’t surprise in any way.
