Late Night Classics – Intruder (An Interview with Danny Hicks)

For “Zooley”…

Intruder is an old-school gorefest from Director Scott Spiegel (From Dusk Till Dawn 2) that came out at a time when the slasher film was all but dead. 1989 was not the best year for the slice-and-dice subgenre: A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child, Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan, and Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers bombed at the box-office and all of these McFranchises were running out of fresh ideas fast.

Out of nowhere; Sam Raimi, Ted Raimi, Scott Spiegel, Danny Hicks, and Bruce Campbell got together after the seminal Evil Dead II to create a down and dirty bloodbath that takes place in the most unimaginable of locales – a supermarket. Imagine if you will the Lovecraftian beasties of The Mist replaced by a pissed off employee who is not ready to collect unemployment, and what you have is the Intruder.
