Intruders (2011) Review:

Intruders is best described as a ghost film with a twist. The first third of the film reveals a bad copy of CGI ghost films such as Darkness Falls or Mama and, after 30 minutes, I almost stopped watching because the story appeared so basic and the CGI so terribly bad.

Luckily, I didn’t stop (I never do) and I gladly discovered that the rest of the film was much better, quite enjoyable actually. The concept of this imaginary creature “Hollowface” is interesting. You get to see the monster quite early in the movie and that leaves plenty of time for the story to build up around the intriguing theme of a strange disease called “la folie a deux”. Still, the story is too far-fetched and too fantastic to be any scary and, looking back at it it, doesn’t make much sense either. I wish someone had warned me that Intruders is more of a fantastic movies than anything really horror, I think I would have had appreciated it a lot more.

Other than that, the acting is great (Clive Owen plays the dad) and the story has a few surprises to delivers. That makes it an average movie that I would still recommend to curious and ghost lovers. Knowing it is almost a fairy tale beforehand may also help you to like it better than I did.
