Intruders will be a Midnighter at SXSW Film Festival 2012, and this is the first trailer for it. The film looks to be scary enough, and that hollow face guy is someone who could very easily scare the crap out of me. The film stars Clive Owen, Carice Van Houten, Pilar Lopez De Ayala, Daniel Bruhl, Kerry Fox, Ella Purnell, and Hector Alterio. The film is directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later). I recognized the young daughter as soon as she popped up in the trailer. That is Ella Purnell and she played the young Keira Knightley in Never Let Me Go.
“Though no one can see him, Hollow Face lurks in the corners, desperately desiring love but only knowing how to spread fear and hate. He creeps into the life of John Farrow (Clive Owen) after Farrow’s beloved 13-year-old daughter Mia (Ella Purnell) is assaulted in their home. The line between the real and the imaginary blurs as fissures start to open within the family unit. It seems that no security measure can keep Hollow Face out.
From visionary filmmaker JUAN CARLOS FRESNADILLO (28 Weeks Later, the upcoming Highlander reboot), INTRUDERS is the chilling story of two children living in different countries, each visited nightly by a faceless being who wants to take possession of them.
INTRUDERS stars CLIVE OWEN (Children of Men), CARICE VAN HOUTEN (Repo Men), PILAR LÓPEZ DE AYALA (Juana la Loca),DANIEL BRÜHL (Inglorious Bastards), KERRY FOX (Shallow Grave) and HÉCTOR ALTERIO (Son of the Bride).”
Intruders will be showing at SXSW on March 13-15, 2012. It has a limited release on March 30. 2012.
