Review rate : C

“..unfortunately, it’s followed here by twists that explain things too easily, making the fantastical seem ordinary after all..”
by Eric D. Snider [Film.com]
“..this is still an intelligent, scary little movie..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
2 of 4

“..there's plenty of atmosphere, with numerous dark shots, shadows, and night scenes, but the tone is more moody than scary..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
3 of 5

“..the most interesting parts of the story are stacked heavily towards the end of the film..”
by Amber Wilkinson [Eye for Film]
Review rate : C

“..the horror genre is neither confining nor in need of transcending, and it's that kind of attitude that leads to mediocrities like Intruders..”
by Scott Tobias [AV Club]
3 of 5

“..the film falls apart over a final surprise that's neither engaging nor effective..”
by Bill Gibron [Filmcritic.com]
2 of 4

“..simply not in the class of such recent Spanish thrillers as "The Others" and "Pan's Labyrinth"..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
“..its climactic reveal fizzles accordingly..”
by Mark Holcomb [Village Voice]
2.5 of 5

“..intruders segues into exactly the sort of slow-moving horror picture one might've expected..”
by David Nusair [Reel Film Reviews]
“..for a man with his own demons, the character takes far too long to connect the dots..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
2.5 of 5

“..first two acts are quite well done as they build on the mythology and really deliver on scares..”
by Brad Miska [Bloody Disgusting]

by Matthew Turner [ViewLondon]

LATEST REVIEWS

PAUL BLART: MALL COP 2 :

“..the rest was a blur of weak slapstick, one over-dyed moustache and vague sexism, ageism and sizeism..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

CHILD 44 :

“..unrelentingly grim, plodding, and close-to-incoherent adaptation of Tom Rob Smith's best-selling mystery..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]

UNFRIENDED :

“..a flashy new coat of paint for the "found footage" genre of horror movie, replacing wobbly handheld cameras with webcams and Skype. Unfortunately, the engine underneath that gloss is woefully familiar, offering the same jump scares we've seen..”
by Jacob Hall [NY Daily News]

MONKEY KINGDOM :

“..these gorgeous-looking films are so much more than chronicles of nature. They have a heart and an insight that's remarkable..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ALEX OF VENICE :

“..although it's enjoyable, actor Chris Messina's directorial debut is somehow less than the sum of its parts, wading only through the shallow end of familiar human conflicts resolved too conveniently to satisfy..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]

TRUE STORY :

“..lightweight script doesn't help a grandiose premise..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

MONSTERS: DARK CONTINENT :

“..plays like a dorm-room answer to modern war films, complete with the constant profanity and masculine hysterics that pass for impact in an immature script..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]

THE ROAD WITHIN :

“..three superb young actors try but fail to bolster a thin script..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

BEYOND THE REACH :

“..it isn't nearly as much creepy fun as it sounds like..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

THE SQUEEZE :

“..between plot and character, there are definitely 18 holes in "The Squeeze"..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
