18 Movies Like Intruders (2016)

It was formerly known as “Shut In” on the festival circuit, and “Intruders” is an effective home invasion thriller that features interesting performances and great pacing… until it isn’t.

As is case with so many other films in this genre, “Intruders” struggles to find its footing in the film’s third and final act. As a result, the movie transforms from an exciting game of predator-and-prey into something more akin to “Saw.”

The filmmaker, Adam Schindler, is more skilled with actors than many other young horror directors, which contributed to the conciseness of the film’s first half.

However, he is unable to fully grasp the direction in which the film should proceed from that point on. The end result is film that has a lot of potential but leaves a sour taste in your mouth, similar to how a meal can look appetising on the plate yet fail to satisfy your hunger.

4. The Perfection (2018)
