Interesting Premise But Filled With Unlikable Characters
18 January 2016 | by HorrorOverEverythingSee all my reviews

The whole "Woman turns the table of ruthless killers" thing has been done a lot lately. You're Next, Preservation, I Spit On Your Grave Remakes, have all done the theme quite well. So when I read the premise for this film it sounded like more of the same and I really wasn't too thrilled. But "Intruders" managed to take that theme and do something pretty interesting and a little interested with it.

I won't spoil anything but I will say that this isn't just simply a movie about a woman being attacked by men and then turning the tables on them. There are some things thrown in to spice it up a bit and make the movie more suspenseful. However, some of the things that were thrown in felt a little choppy and rushed. It's good that the film makers tried to do some original things but some of them just didn't work.

The movie's weak point is definitely the characters. The baddies are just not interesting at all and the leading female transitions through emotions way too much to ever really gain a connection with the audience. You want to root for her but a lot of her actions are questionable, and plus one minute she will be a ruthless bad ass and then the next she is a babbling victim.

I liked this film, it does enough right to make it an entertaining experience. Unfortunately it misses the ball on being more then just good, if they would have done a few more things right it probably could have been a pretty great horror film.

6/10
