Here comes fuckin' INTRUDER, walking down miles ahead of its release date...

.
Synapse Films appears to be shipping their upcoming Blu-ray/DVD combo of Scott Spiegel's Intruder well ahead of its official December 13th release for those who pre-order via their site.

I ordered mine last Monday and received it today (even had to sign for the package). According to Don May over on Facebook there are still copies left that include a VHS-sourced DVD-R of the workprint, that's some eight minutes longer, and until sold out the pre-order's denotation of "+BONUS DISC" will reflect that. Kentai's Films also received their pre-order early and posted screenshots from the Blu-ray which look great. Wizard's prior DVD definitely can't compete.   

From some old thoughts: "There's something quite zen about this low-budget, late era slasher from many of those responsible for The Evil Dead. Maybe it's the night shoot or the quiet grocery store locale. Whatever it is, even as the killings begin, the proceedings have a pleasant calming effect. It's like hack n' slash yogurt; sweet, to the point, and easily digestible for even the most ardent of non-slasher fans."

Well, your photo convinced me. I ordered it. I would have done so earlier but there was a problem with their veri-sign.

Just watched the DVD version last night, of course not as strong as the Blu-ray, but it's still a massive jump from the Wizard DVD.

Still, props to Wizard for releasing it uncut (like Synapse). The original VHS from Paramount was cut all to unwatchable hell.

...do you dare tread upon the staircase?
