Intruder (1989) Revisited – Horror Movie Review

A new episode of our The best horror movie you never saw video series (published under the reviewed banner) has just arrived online, and in this one we’re taking a look at one of the least-watched slashers of the ’80s, the 1989 film from director Scott Spiegel. Intruder (pick up a copy of the unrated Blu-ray HERE). In its unclassified form, Intruder features some amazing and gory kills provided by KNB. Sadly, the R-rated cut was the only version of the film that was available for several years, which certainly didn’t help its reputation. But now the unrated hack is widely available, and in the video embedded above you’ll find out why we think you should seek it out. Intruder.

Scripted by Spiegel (who wrote evil dead ii with Sam Raimi) from a story he crafted with producer Lawrence Bender, Intruder has the following synopsis:

It’s 10 p.m. and the employees of Michigan’s Walnut Lake supermarket are having a really bad night. The place is closing its doors for good, and the night crew has a long shift ahead of them…longer than they think! The charming cashier has a deranged ex-boyfriend, the store’s phone lines are cut, and employees start dying in the most twisted ways imaginable. A deranged killer is on the loose at the grocery store! Can anyone stop this murderous intruder?

The film stars Elizabeth Cox, Renée Estevez, Danny Hicks, David Byrnes, Eugene Glazer, Billy Marti, Burr Steers, Craig Stark, Ted Raimi, and Sam Raimi. There are also appearances by Alvy Moore and Tom Lester from green acresthe Three Stooges regular, Emil Sitka, and Bruce Campbell.
