Intruder

Overview

Gory slasher mayhem from Evil Dead co-writer Scott Spiegel, this claustrophobic thriller is set entirely in a small supermarket, whose owner is preparing to go out of business. This doesn't sit too well with the film's resident maniac, who busily butchers the night crew using the tools of the trade hooks, axes, knives, power tools and so on. The victims include Spiegel's pal and Evil Dead director Sam Raimi as the butcher-shop buffoon who meets a nasty end on a meathook; even Raimi's favorite lantern-jawed star ...

The victims include Spiegel's pal and Evil Dead director Sam Raimi as the butcher-shop buffoon who meets a nasty end on a meathook; even Raimi's favorite lantern-jawed star Bruce Campbell puts in an eyeblink cameo as a brutish cop. Though the film sports some clever, audacious gore effects from KNB FX Group, most of this footage is absent from Paramount's home video print.

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.
