Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Gets disappointingly literal with what proves to be a goofy psychological story."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"Why do so many horror movies that begin with promise fall apart in the final act?"
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"I could think of a half dozen things that INTRUDERS almost says, but the film doesn't take the time to actually say any of them."
‑ Meredith Borders, Badass Digest
"The story jumps back and forth between the two countries and quickly becomes tedious and only mildly scary. The ending might surprise you if you manage to stay awake. A compelling story with more chills and a clearer plotline could have helped."
‑ Paul Chambers, Movie Chambers
"Intruders was either the victim of reshoots and postproduction meddling or it desperately needed some."
‑ Matt Singer, ScreenCrush
"This is ... an intelligent, scary little movie. Because it's smart enough to know what's really scary is what's inside us."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"If you don't guess the big twist in the first 30 minutes, "Intruders" is half of a good movie. If you do, it's about a third of a good movie."
‑ Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle
"Intruders is a thriller hybrid that goes a long way and it is definitely worth the watch."
‑ Billy Tatum, We Got This Covered
"Intruders is a slow-going psychological thriller with very few thrills and little intrigue."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"Spanish director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has created a fascinating hybrid -- and a moody, spooky movie besides."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media
""Intruders'' looks great and has a promising opening, but this atmospheric Spanish psychological thriller is otherwise pretty underwhelming."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"It's a pleasure to find that Mr. Fresnadillo has assumed the mantle of horror classicist to make "Intruders," using shadows and directorial sleights of hand to coax forth its slow-building scares rather than just pouring on the usual guts and gore."
‑ Manohla Dargis, New York Times
""Intruders" is a horror film that has absolutely nothing memorable or noteworthy about it."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"Owen is always at least good, and here he's perfectly cast."
‑ Andy Klein, Christian Science Monitor
"Treats a molehill of an idea as though it were a mountain of fright."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
