Dark and disturbing HK Cat III thriller.
27 June 2006 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

Wu Chien-Lien plays Yan,a wanted criminal who flees from Taiwan to Hong Kong by killing a prostitute and assuming her identity.Once in HK,she meets a perfect victim played by Lai Yiu-Cheung.She proceeds to take him hostage in his own home,and prepares for the arrival of her also-wanted murderous husband."The Intruder" certainly packs a punch.It's a gritty and evil film filled with enough brutal violence and gore to put a smile on the face of any self-respecting HK Cat III fan.Wu Chien-Lien is reasonably effective as a remorseless female serial killer,who murders hookers,dogs,grandmas and men.The climax is suspenseful and horrifying.The film lacks sleaze of its nasty Cat III predecessors,but fans of violent and disturbing Hong Kong cinema should give it a look. 9 out of 10.
