“We can get through this…”
Intrusion premiered on Netflix on September 22nd 2021. The thriller film stars Freida Pinto, Logan Marshall-Green, Robert John Burke and Megan Elisabeth Kelly. It runs for approximately 90 minutes.
Meera and Henry Parsons are traumatized after a home invasion occurs in their newly built home, shattering their trust in those around them.
Here is the trailer:
Intrusion has a chilling and unsettling impact as it takes a home invasion premise and weaves it into something even more disturbing. But does this film do enough to earn a watch? Let’s find out…
Performances with edge.
I was absolutely thrilled to see Freida Pinto in this and I thought she did an excellent job. Logan Marshall-Green was so fantastic in both Upgrade and The Invitation and he is no stranger to this type of movie. I really loved the character dynamics and I thought they both presented us with believable performances worth getting excited about.
I cared about what happened to them which made this movie come to life that much more for me.
A shocking twist.
It’s not always easy presenting the audience with an unpredictable twist and I thought that this film delivered and then some. There will be no spoilers in this review, but I was so shocked by the reveal and I could not stop watching this movie once we got toward the end. I loved every second of it!
Flickering identity in the middle.
The film quickly gets off to a chilling start but then things split off into several different directions during the middle portion. I was slightly confused and started to wonder about what kind of movie I was actually watching. That being said, once I reached the peak of the movie, I was completely hooked, but I think that some of the initial discoveries could have been done in a more seamless way to keep the audience completely invested.
So am I in or out?
This movie wasn’t perfect, but I thoroughly enjoyed my watch. I think that Netflix has been presenting us with some really entertaining guilty-pleasure thriller and horror films lately and this one was really enjoyable.
The performances were great and that twist still has me in complete shock! Loved it!
