The Intruder is a psychological thriller which has similar echoes to 1990’s rather excellent Pacific Heights, starring Michael Keaton, but can ’90s nostalgia make this genre great again?
It centres around newly-married couple Scott Russell (Michael Ealy) and his wife, Annie (Meagan Good), who buy a beautiful Napa Valley house on several acres of land, only to find that the man they bought it from refuses to let go of the property.
At first seen in the trailer, former owner Charlie Peck (Dennis Quaid) is fine with letting go, but then he’s out mowing the lawn, and then coming back in the middle of the night…
Based on the trailer, this could go either way, so I hope it goes the right way.
I first saw Michael Ealy in the US drama Sleeper Cell, which was a fantastic drama and could really have done with a third season to tie off the loose ends, but it was cancelled and we’ll never see how it should’ve turned out.
The Intruder is released on May 3rd 2019 in the US, but as of yet there’s no UK date.
