Reviews:

“It’s thanks to Taylor’s meticulous direction and fully committed performances from his gifted leads that The Intruder is lifted from a pulpy thriller lacking substance to a tightly wound master class in over-the-top scary movie soapy drama.” Kalyn Corrigan, read more at Arrow in the Head

” …the real draw here is to see Quaid cut loose in an unhinged role, and boy oh boy does he deliver. If you’ve seen the trailer for The Intruder, you probably have a good idea of how everything will play out. Genuine surprises are few and far between […] so it falls on the actors to sell the admittedly mediocre material. Quaid is more than up to the challenge, and Ealy & Good do what they can.” Trace Thurman, read more at Bloody Disgusting
