The Intruder 1.0 stars

Intruder movie poster

Charlie (Dennis Quaid), a locked-and-loaded delusional narcissist whose view of life is shaded by a red baseball cap, refuses to budge from his property even after its sale to a young couple (Meagan Good as Annie and Michael Ealy as Scott) has been finalized. Who can blame a guy if the home in which he killed his ex doesn’t hold some sentimental value? Besides, Scott has a tough enough time trying to convince psycho Charlie to back the hell off when Annie, stupidly sensing a lonely widowed soul, keeps opening the door to him. Quaid gives what could amount to a career-crowning performance. Not since Terry O’Quinn’s star turn as The Stepfather has there resided in the basement a more nuanced, finely derailed monster. But it’s a wasted effort, seeing as screenwriter David Loughery finds nothing new to explore. All of this seems to be just fine with director Deon Taylor, who pretty much had this material covered in Traffilk. 2019.
