The screenplay by Chris Sparling gets right to the point. It doesn’t truly provide a baseline for the couple’s new living circumstances or their relationship. Director Adam Salky catches Meera’s lovely home, which appears to be right out of a magazine, and quickly transforms it into a place of doubt and anxiety. Throughout the film, the protagonist is continually spying. She isn’t particularly good at it, though. Characters in horror films are frequently mocked for making poor judgments. Intrusion is a thriller, but her decision-making and investigative skills are more in line with what spectators would anticipate from a horror movie character. IMDB
Meera’s health scare, medical history, and other aspects of her backstory are hinted to in Intrusion. It is, however, never fully integrated into the film. There’s a version of this movie where the themes of marital strife, Meera’s past, and the house invasion translate into something more serious and urgent. Intrusion, on the other hand, is a surface-level thriller that isn’t interested in delving deeper into its story elements or characters.
