Meta is a talented director and I am excited for what she does next, but The Intruder just doesn't fire on all cylinders.

"The Intruder" generates so much intrigue to maintain a breathless pace and unsettling atmosphere at every turn, with Rives' layered performance fusing the strange trip together.

Top Critic

An oddly flavorless supernatural psycho-thriller from sophomore Argentinian director Natalia Meta.

February 21, 2020 | Full Review…

Like the ragged mental state of its main character, it unravels as it goes on. But it is also never less than stridently entertaining, in part thanks to a brittle central performance from Erica Rivas.

The spirit of the film is one of mischievous fun, and the story's refusal to take itself seriously wins a regular laugh.

A psychological thriller revolving around sound. Wonderfully acted.
