    Amy Biancolli San Francisco Chronicle

    If you don't guess the big twist in the first 30 minutes, Intruders is half of a good movie. If you do, it's about a third of a good movie. Either way, there's a whole lot of bad movie to contend with. show more

    Hollowface, like Intruders (which ought to be just the singular "Intruder," as Hollowface works solo), is all about empty scares. Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo does include perhaps the most half-hearted exorcism ever filmed, which only seems fitting. show more

    Where the film falls apart is in trying to steer this nightmare out of dark fantasy into the cold light of logic. show more

    Far from carving its way into new nightmares, Intruders is bland enough to put old ones to rest. show more

    Michelle Orange Movieline

    A movie about childhood nightmares that plays too much like an actual, incoherent nightmare to make a good movie, Intruders is a psychodrama divided against itself. show more

    Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's Intruders looks great and has a promising opening, but this atmospheric Spanish psychological thriller is otherwise pretty underwhelming. show more

    Its muddled, overambitious story leaves us unsatisfied - you might even say hollow. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    The inevitable twist ties things neatly together before leading to a confusing, borderline-indecipherable ending that fails to satisfy on a number of levels. show more

    Rex Reed New York Observer

    He (Owen) doesn't fail the movie. The movie fails him. As his wife, the superb Carice van Houten has so little to do or say - so peripheral a relation to everything else in the movie - that she seems to be an intruder herself. show more

    Damon Wise Empire

    Though short on shocks and mild in horror terms, Fresnadillo's fantasy has a lot of heart and sincerity in equal measure. show more
