Consensus: Intruders has a fantastic first act but then settles into a bland plot and scare tactics that aren't all too scary.

Eric D. Snider

Gets disappointingly literal with what proves to be a goofy psychological story.

Why do so many horror movies that begin with promise fall apart in the final act?

Clive Owen's daddy issues are getting out of hand.

This is ... an intelligent, scary little movie. Because it's smart enough to know what's really scary is what's inside us.

Amy Biancolli
San Francisco Chronicle

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.

Don't tease that we might see a face get torn off and only give us what amounts to several noogies-from-the-beyond.

"Intruders'' looks great and has a promising opening, but this atmospheric Spanish psychological thriller is otherwise pretty underwhelming.

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.

Meredith Borders

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.

Clumsy and confusing. I had no idea what the hell was going on most of the time. The constant switching between characters that were barely related to each… More

A movie with an interesting concept that is undone by its stupidly idiotic twist in its last act. It's the type of twist where you are absolutely… More

Really, really, really dumb. One of the worst "scary" or "thrilling" movies I've seen because it is neither.
