Overview

Scott Spiegel's little-seen gore classic Intruder finally makes its way stateside in all its uncut glory thanks to Wizard Entertainment. While the flick doesn't quite get the attention of an Anchor Bay or Blue Underground release, this disc should still be a top priority sale for anyone lacking the previously released Region 2 version. The kills are indeed intact here, and even though it might not have the most pristine picture or sound quality, it's good enough for now. Seasoned veterans of the film will find some humor in Wizard's blatant attempt to garner more sales with a pasted-in picture on the back of the box of Bruce Campbell, whose screen time equals about a minute in the final moments of the flick.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
Gnarly and bloody hilarious, Scott Spiegel's low-budget slasher opus Intruder is just what the demented doctor ordered for gore fans and dedicated followers of the Evil Dead troupe of filmmakers. Shot for a measly 100,000 dollars, the film is considered a cult classic in most horror circles due to the infamous uncut print that made its rounds on the bootleg circuits for over a decade. Known mainly for the supporting roles of both Ted and Sam Raimi (along with a tidbit from Bruce Campbell at the end), Intruder explodes with their patented quirky humor but isn't afraid to get down and dirty with the nasty and inventive kills from future K.N.B. makeup effects head Greg Nicotero. Spiegel's directorial debut also displays a strong visceral style that's very much in the same vein as Raimi's early features and packed with crazy p.o.v. shots that spice up the action throughout the film. Additionally, the ensemble cast goes a long way with their quirky characters, and the grocery-store setting is an interesting touch that easily sets it apart from the rest of its slasher kin. Fans need not worry about hunting down the uncut version in various grey-market settings anymore, thanks to plenty of available copies overseas and finally an official U.S. DVD release from Wizard Entertainment in 2005.
