Film still: Intruders
"Admirably nasty... menacing and magnetic"
  —Los Angeles Times
"Tautly directed...and benefits greatly from [Beth] Riesgraf's performance as the agoraphobic Anna"
  —Film Journal International
"Debuting director Adam Schindler's thriller is a lively effort that should engage genre fans... an efficiently engineered suspense movie, with solid performances and a tight pace"
  —Chicago Tribune

Anna Rook (Beth Riesgraf) is isolated from human contact in nearly every way, which is exactly how she likes it. Suffering from crippling agoraphobia and holed up in an old Victorian mansion on the outskirts of town, the people in Anna's life can be counted on two fingers: her terminally-ill brother, Conrad, and the charismatic Meals-on-Wheels driver, Dan. But Anna's home is about to be invaded by a trio of small-time criminals after a hidden stash of cash. She cannot bring herself to flee, but what the intruders do not realize is that agoraphobia is the least of her psychoses.

A deadly cat-and-mouse game ensues in this home invasion narrative that explores the detrimental effects of anxiety and trauma as it twists into something truly unexpected.

Directed by Adam Schindler, 2015, U.S.A., 90 mins.
