Monsters are born from children's imaginations and are passed down by families.
" As these parallel supernatural mysteries begin to meld into one another, all semblance of credibility dissolves, leaving behind an impenetrable and frustrating fog of unanswered questions. "
" All Hollow Face -- a black-hooded, vaporous shape -- likes to do, apparently, is hover over sleeping bodies and snatch a leg or two. "
" Why do so many horror movies that begin with promise fall apart in the final act? "
" "Intruders" promises much but delivers relatively little. "
" It's a pleasure to find that Mr. Fresnadillo has assumed the mantle of horror classicist to make "Intruders," using shadows and directorial sleights of hand to coax forth its slow-building scares rather than just pouring on the usual guts and gore. "
" Little happens in the first act, and most of what transpires in the second will be contradicted by the events of the third. Doesn't leave much of a net sum. "
" With nothing tangible at stake, Intruders is just an aggregation of influences that's as blank as its bogeyman. "
" This is ... an intelligent, scary little movie. Because it's smart enough to know what's really scary is what's inside us. "
" Gets disappointingly literal with what proves to be a goofy psychological story. "
" Intruders is never scary, and it's so implausible and uninvolving that even when it's being explained, it is still unconvincing. Talky psychology is a poor substitute for supernatural thrills. "
" Owen is a good actor stuck in a subpar creepfest that makes no good use of his gravitas and talents. "
" "Intruders'' looks great and has a promising opening, but this atmospheric Spanish psychological thriller is otherwise pretty underwhelming. "
" Its muddled, overambitious story leaves us unsatisfied - you might even say hollow. "
" Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo's technical skills are impressive, but this psychological chiller loses traction in the over-explanatory concluding stretch. "
" Plays with classic horror elements of rain, bony monster fingers, vertiginous camera angles, and assorted shout-outs to Pan's Labyrinth. "
" 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. "
