I haven't gotten the chills watching a scary movie since I was a kid, and that darned clown from Poltergeist scared the jeebers out of me. The movie did a fine job of scaring, with no blood, faces jumping at the camera, which seems to be the only way Hollywood can think to scare anyone anymore. The tone and pace were perfect, and the girl playing Mia was just brilliant. Clive Owen, as always, was absolutely great and you could see real terror and belief in their faces. Best scary movie Ive seen in quite some time.

It doesn't take very much for this one to send chills up your spine. All horror lovers will enjoy the thrill ride as faces are jumping about, the hot water Mia gets herself into, not knowing if there's any turning back allowed. The acting performance of Clive Owen is impressive. Be careful and look all around, the air is filled with fear and terror. Scary and Haunting!

Two children in two different countries with one thing in common, every night a weird being with no face comes to take possession of them. Despite this no one can appear to see this being named Hollow Face who does want to be loved but only can cause pain and many other harmful emotions. Hollow Face makes his way to the U.S. where a father named John Farrow (Clive Owen, "Children of Men") must turn back this being when it targets his daughter Mia.

Despite attempts to keep his family and home safe, Hollow Face's continued pursuit forces Farrow to get more desperate to solve the mystery and save his family. Its not a horrid film as far as one that deals with spirits though Mia writing Hollow Face's story and her narration at times early on in the movie is a nice touch.

It does have some creepy elements to it thanks in part to director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) who directs the U.S. and especially the Spanish speaking parts quite well. Its not really a perfect movie by any means but Owen is especially good as the father and the rest of the cast is at least acceptable. **1/2 out of 4 stars.

I was surprised i'd never heard of this film, as I do like Clive Owen a great deal. So many "scary" movies these days just aren't, and their idea of horror is usually gore. I imagine the thought process of most horror filmmakers go something like this:

"There's this crazy person killing people. Maybe it's because of some wrong done to crazy person in the past, or maybe he's just crazy. We don't really know and we don't think the audience has enough brains to care. All we wanna do is show him killing a lot of people in some bizarre and gruesome way. So that you can tell our killer from all the other psycho killers, we'll have some hook, like he rips out their spines or sews their lips together or eats their eyeballs. Grossing out the audience will distract them from the fact that our movie really has no plot at all. If we give you a reason or make some attempt to tie it all together in the end, it will be really lame or we'll throw in some "twist" because we all want to make the next "Sixth Sense." But either you'll see our twist will coming within the first fifteen minutes, or it will make absolutely no rational sense to anybody who's actually been paying attention. But we don't really care, because we have nothing original to say and we know it."

But "Intruders" is a cut above that formula. It's a restrained and genuinely creepy film.

It follows two families being terrorized by a faceless intruder. The children involved seem to be reading a story about the intruder -- or are they creating it? -- that reads like just another urban legends kids tell each other at sleepovers. But soon the parents are drawn into the terror.

It took me a long time to deduce the point of this movie. Once I did, there was no satisfaction as there should have been. It's not that anything was presented poorly, per se. I think it's that they failed to present what they needed to in order to sell me on this story.

The opening scene of this movie casts a less serious mood than one would expect from an R-rated horror. Two children (one 12, one 8) living in different countries (England and Spain) are visited nightly by a faceless being who wants to take possession of them. Each child has found a convincingly similar story about the faceless fiend. Quickly quelling this immature storytelling notion is the disturbing faceless imagery of "Hollowface," our spectral intruder.

The parents of each child have their own passed-down methods of alleviating their children's fears: nostalgic children's books, burning an effigy (a bit extreme if you ask me), closing your eyes and counting to five--none of them seem to work. Then some strange things start happening with the parents, too: a near death experience for Clive Owen's work buddy and Juan's mom has some issues finding credibility claiming demonic possession.

The children's childish(?) fears worsen toward mania and the parents have difficulty handling their terror. But what happens when the parents start seeing the same thing? Both children's parents adopt increasingly paranoid, but protective, behavior. The British family turns to the police, the Spanish family to the church; both fail to find credibility in the parents' story which, in their mind, is a case of the children's story "infecting" the parents. When efforts to help these families inexplicably fail, they are considered crazy and/or psychological explanations are forced upon them.
