Intruders Invites You Down into the Basement: DVD Release Details

The taut thriller and horror feature Intruders, from director Adam Schindler, is slated for a DVD release. Momentum Pictures will handle the release and DVDs will be available this March. Intruders offers a bit of a twist, with one agoraphobic woman attacked by a group of burglars. But, Anna (Beth Riesgraf) is no stranger to violence. The film's trailer was released, recently and it is hosted below. The clip shows actors Rory Culkin, Jack Kesy, Joshua Mikel and others. As well, the film's official DVD artwork is hosted here, with more release details below.

The film's story offers a change in protagonist and antagonist; the tables are quickly turned. So, viewers might be best to see this title blind, not watching publicity material beforehand. However, from the trailer, it becomes obvious that Anna is a wolf in sheep's clothing. A torture room (an inescapable basement) traps at least one man, while another man threatens murder. But, Anna promises a murder or two of her own.

Intruders has received several positive reviews over the months, from this horror fan's research. Blair Hoyle of Cinema Slasher mentions the film's entertainment factor: "Intruders is an entertaining enough entry in the world of home invasion cinema." And, Rob Hunter of Film School Rejects states "live-wire personalities [roam] its halls light up the environment with their darkness." These menacing personalities will darkly shine this March 1st, when the film is released to home entertainment audiences.

Release Date: March 1st, 2016 (DVD).

Director: Adam Schindler.

Writers: T.J. Cimfel and David White.

Cast: Rory Culkin, Leticia Jimenez, Jack Kesy, Timothy T. McKinney and Joshua Mikel.

The Hoarder has Room for Another Body or Two

There have been a number of storage-styled horror films of late. There was the simply titled Storage (2009), then Self Storage (2013) and then the sci-fi infused Storage 24 (2014). This time, your trip to the local storage facility takes place with Matt Winn's The Hoarder. Starring Mischa Barton ("The O.C.") and Robert Knepper ("Prison Break"), The Hoarder involves a break-in of a storage facility and the strange cast of characters who lie behind these locked doors. A trailer for the film was released in the middle of 2015. Then, the film was released in Germany in late 2015. Now, horror film fans can take a look at the film's release, which is scheduled for April 2016.

The official synopsis focuses on Ella (Barton). She decides to break into her fiancĂ©’s storage locker. But, things do not go according to plan. An unspeakable monstrosity has taken residence in one of the other lockers. Meanwhile, a corrupt detective has his own nefarious designs. All of these characters come to blows, deep below ground, in a maze-like structure.

Fans of indie features can preview the film's release below. The film's trailer is hosted here.
