Release Date:July 17,2012
An all-together decent horror film that stumbles in its final act when its somewhat predictable big twist is finally revealed. What is refreshing is that Intruders relies more on the art of good direction and the use of lighting and shadow rather than just pouring on gory, bad, cgi elements like so many so-called horror films these days. Its not a great film, and certainly not destined to be a horror classic, but it does have genuine scares and is certainly better than most Hollywood horror fare these days.
From visionary filmmaker and Academy Award® nominee Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (Best Short Film, Live Action, Linked, 1996; 28 Weeks Later, the upcoming Highlander reboot), the psychological thriller Intruders comes to Blu-ray, DVD and VOD July 17th from Millennium Entertainment. The chilling story of two children living in different countries, each visited nightly by a faceless being who wants to take possession of them, Intruders stars Academy Award® nominee Clive Owen (Best Actor, Supporting Role, Closer, 2004; Killer Elite, Children of Men, Inside Man) along with Carice Van Houten (TV’s “Game of Thrones,” Valkyrie) and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds). Bonus features include a "Making Of" featurette and "Inside Look," a behind-the-scenes look at the film.
Intruders is produced by Enrique López-Lavigne (28 Weeks Later, The Impossible), Belén Atienza (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Impossible) and Mercedes Gamero (Planet 51, Torrente 4: Lethal Crisis). Jesús De La Vega (Hierro, The 2 Sides of the Bed) and Ricardo G. Arrojo (Planet 51, Julia’s Eyes) serve as Executive Producers. The script is by Nico Casariego (Tú qué harías por amor?) and Jaime Marques (Takers).
Though no one can see him, Hollow Face lurks in the corners, desperately desiring love but only knowing how to spread fear and hate. He creeps into the life of John Farrow (Owen) after Farrow’s beloved 13-year-old daughter Mia (Ella Purnell) is assaulted in their home. The line between the real and the imaginary blurs as fissures start to open within the family unit. It seems that no security measure can keep Hollow Face out.
