WHAT IT'S ABOUT:

When a young married couple (Michael Ealy and Meagan Good) buys their dream house in the Napa Valley, they think they have found the perfect home to take their next steps as a family. But when the strangely attached seller (Dennis Quaid) continues to infiltrate their lives, they begin to suspect that he has hidden motivations beyond a quick sale.

WHAT THE CRITICS THOUGHT:

The real secret weapon of The Intruder is the intruder himself, played by Dennis Quaid in a completely unhinged performance of true lunacy. - Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times

A flaccid wannabe thriller that barely spends any time forming its story, and what little we do know is utterly uninteresting. - Candice Frederick, TheWrap

The film is so full of jump scare fake-outs and shout-at-the-screen moments, it neglects to build sustained suspense-a far worse sin than its lack of logic, which can actually be kind of fun. - Katie Rife, AV Club

A hammy home-invasion thriller steeped in the storied mothballs of a thousand Lifetime melodramas about dark secrets, ax-wielding sociopaths, and premium real estate. - Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly

As the cogs speed up, something relatively miraculous happens: it actually starts to work. - Benjamin Lee, Guardian
