“In the aftermath of a deadly haunting in a small suburban home, a sinister omnipresent entity proceeds to cause havoc in the private lives of a young boy, an unsuspecting teen, and an absently minded inspector”. Intruders is a peculiar short film telling two different stories all in one film. At first, I was very confused watching this horror short; I kept trying to piece it together looking for a certain connection that links the film as an entirety. I couldn’t find anything until I researched the film and found the entire analysis behind. This horror shot is actually an adaption of two comic one called 5:45 by Al Columbia and another comic titled Jacov by Uno Moralez. Between the two stores included in this film my favorite and the most disturbing story has to be Jacov.  Jacov a teenager(Charles Sira rd Blouin) spying on an apartment building across the street and he sees something unexplainable terrifying. This story is fantastic it visually interesting keeping you on the edge of your seat the entire time. This short is obviously inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s film Rear Window. There is a particular shot in Jacov where the young boy’s eye is peering through the end of a handheld telescope and it’s an exceptional shot and if not the strongest shot in the film. Personally, Jacov is the strongest story told in the entire film and I actually would have preferred it as a separate horror short; it would have been more effective. 5:45 was ok; visually this short was great but other than that it was kind of boring and really scary just a ghost boy wondering his home. The only real connection all these horror tales have is that there is an “Intruder” an inspector enters the ghost boys home disrupting the peace; a possessed lady breaks into a young boys apartment. Overall Intruders is an entertaining horror flick that has good cinematography and an intriguing story; unfortunately, one fable is more interesting than the other. Watch The Film Here
