Intruder 1989 ★★★½

Arriving at the tail-end of the 80's and therefore missing the slasher boom, this low-budget effort contains some imaginative use of the camera, decent gore fx work and cameos from none other than Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell!

The supermarket setting & lack of many of the usual tropes of the sub-genre - not a naked pair of tits in sight - contribute to something that feels a little different from the slasher-norm and you have to admire that. Sadly, the "twist" is a bit silly and the final reel somewhat undermines the rest of the film.
