What’s with all these British horror films coming out? The Woman in Black and now Intruders. It’s nice and refreshing actually. And hey, at least we aren’t getting a million Japanese horror remakes anymore, right? Those turn out pretty horrible – like Dream House.
This one is about a guy called Hollow Face who visits two children in different countries every night to try to gain possession of them for nefarious acts. Or maybe he’s bored, I dunno. The trailer centers on Clive Owen and his daughter. The creepiness here comes from reality and fiction blurring and not knowing what’s going on, like in Shutter Island. It’s the newest film from Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, who directed 28 Weeks Later.
The problem, I think, is that all these horror movies that use a lot of CG (see: Dream House, this) tend to not be scary. At all. What happened to old fashioned scares? That’s why the original Paranormal Activity worked so well. It felt real. So did The Shining and The Exorcist and even The Thing. I just hope this movie feels real. Then we can get some real scars.
