Anna (Riesgraf) suffers from agoraphobia that when her brother, Conrad (McKinney) passes away, she is left alone in the house she has not stepped out of the past 10 years. When a trio of criminals, J.P. (Kesy), Vance (Mikel), and Perry (Starr) break into Anna’s house, she cannot bring herself to flee. However, unbeknownst to the intruders, agoraphobia is not Anna’s only psychosis.
Intruders is a tightly paced indie thriller with a promising start and second act, but finishes with a lackluster final act. There’s quite a bit of debate as to how the ending could be improved, but all in all, Intruders prove to be a mediocre thriller. Furthermore, Starr and Riesgraf carried the movie with convincing performances. Apart from that, there is nothing that stands out in particular throughout the film with the possible exception of the set design of the house.
Overall, Intruders is an average thriller flick that reminisces Fincher’s Panic Room. If you’re into thrillers with a hint of Saw or revenge flicks, you may want to check this film out.
