Intruders (2011)Wow, the best of this movie is really good. There's a basic plot of a person who is being pursued by a demon, and we see this person both as a boy in Spain and as an adult (Clive Owen) in England. So the pursuit, or call it possession, by this evil thing is carried out over a long period of time, and the movie rocks back and forth between the two zones.What makes it further complicated, and in a wonderfully childlike way, is the connection of the two zones. It's not just that the same person is affected. Without giving too much away, the boy overcomes the evil with a kind of trick of trapping it with storytelling and he hides the key to this trap high in a distant tree where it won't be found.Except that the boy grows up, becomes Clive Owen, and has a cute daughter who loves to...

4/10: Substantially void, yet fascinating
Sunday, November 1, 2015

Rather curious and unfathomable little movie this is, to say the least I'll immediately admit that I was extremely focused and fascinated when watching Juan-Carlos Fresnadillo's "Intruders" and this from the opening sequences until the very last climax sequences. And yet at the same time I also regularly caught myself thinking during this film stuff like: "this isn't going anywhere " or "what is the meaning of all this?". Director Fresnadillo interweaves two separate stories, one set in his home country Spain and one set in Britain where made his previous success film "28 Weeks Later". Both stories revolve on two young children that are being terrorized by a petrifying monster nicknamed Hollowface (because he seemingly doesn't have a frontispiece and wants to steal theirs). Hollowface appears at night in the bedrooms of the the Spanish boy Juan and the English girl Mia. In Spain the desperate mother of the boy seeks the help of a...

5/10: It's just too slow paced and uninvolving, despite the passionate performance of Mr. Owen
Wednesday, August 1, 2012

INTRUDERS': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)A Spanish and British horror film starring Clive Owen and directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (who also directed the Spanish/British horror sequel '28 WEEKS LATER'). The film was written by Nicolas Casariego and Jaime Marques and tells the story of two children in different countries who are both haunted by the same demon looking to possess them. It co-stars Carice van Houten, Pilar Lopez de Ayala, Ella Purnell, Izan Corchero and Daniel Bruhl. The movie contains some frightening sequences and some decent acting but for the most part is a bore.One story is set in Madrid and focuses on a young boy named Juan (Corchero) who is terrorized by a monster called Hollowface. His mother (Ayala) sees the demon as well but is unable to stop it so she calls on a local priest (Bruhl) to help exorcise it. Another story focuses on a young girl named Mia...
