It’s 10:00pm and the employees of Michigan’s Walnut Lake Supermarket are in for a really bad night. The place is shutting its doors for good, and the night crew has a long shift ahead of them. Longer than they think! The lovely check-out girl has a deranged ex-boyfriend, the store’s phone lines are cut and the employees start dying in the most stomach-churning ways imaginable. A deranged killer is on the loose in the grocery store! Can anyone stop this murderous intruder? Starring a veritable "who's who" of Michigan film folks: Sam Raimi and his brother Ted along with cameos from Bruce Campbell, producer Lawrence Bender and INTRUDER director Scott Spiegel.

Fun, well paced, and funny. Must admit I did not see that twist coming. Who knew a grocery store could have so many cool ways to kill someone?

When this first came out it was cut to pieces (no pun intended) by the censors. This version appears more or less intact which is a good thing as the only real reason for films like this is to take delight in the over the top gore effects. In this case said effects by the team of Howard Berger , Robert Kurtzman and Greg Nicotero - who is responsible for much of the fx on "The Walking Dead". Pretty much your standard slasher flick - no big surprises but some inventive cinematography and a bit more intensional humor than one normally sees in these things. For lovers of 80s slasher/gore.

Grade A fun slasher! Plus the Raimi brothers and even a cameo from Bruce Campbell! Loved it.

Oh, vey. The HAIR in this was painful.

Intruder is missing some heavy doses of logic, but it's undeniably a well-crafted slasher. You won't find cinematography like this in many others. Similar to The Burning, the makers of Intruder created a good rapport within their cast of characters, so you at least sort of care about them before they're gruesomely mutilated. The real stars of the film though are the four special makeup effects artists: Greg Nicotero, Robert Kurtzman, Sean Rodgers and Howard Bergman. They put some gnarly kills on-screen. Never trust laundry detergent that won't stay on the shelf.

Not just the best slasher film in a year when they really had fallen from grace, but one of the greatest slashers period.

By the numbers 1980s stalk and slash, but with grizzly "humor." Avoid. The only thing that made it remotely worth watching was that it took place in an awesome 80s grocery store with lots of product in view.

back from the 80's this old school slasher film had some great camera angles and was pretty well done..Very 'campy' and mildly entertaining...
