Intruder (1989) 

Written and directed by Scott Spiegel 

This is my first showing of what I’m going to call “Saturday Night Dead”, and I figured I’d start it off with one of my favorite horror films of all time; Intruder. 
The movie starts off with the employees of the Walnut Lake grocery store closing up for the night, when cashier Jennifer’s psycho ex-boyfriend comes around harassing her and her coworkers. After some inept cops show up, the crew thinking they were rid of him, go back to work only to end up being stalked and killed off one at a time. With a bandsaw, trash compactor, meat hooks, and several other weapons at the killers disposal can any of them make it to daylight… or at least until  another unit of idiot cops show up? 

Keep an eye out for the following Evil Dead 2 crew members in this one: Sam Raimi, Ted Raimi, Danny Hicks… and Bruce Campbell with a cameo at the end. Also, write/director Scott Spiegel cowrote Evil Dead 2. (But I’m sure you knew that. Didn’t you?)

There’s a bunch of body parts thrown around the store, a good eyeball scene, a few headless bodies, as well as a number of ridiculous yet awesome kills.  If you’re into slasher films, fun horror and well as gore, then I think you’ll like this movie.

So I changed my avatar to Danny Hicks’ character “Bill Roberts” from the movie Intruder. Great, underrated movie, and if you haven’t checked out it out, I recommend it. I may actually post it tomorrow for “Saturday Night Dead”. I believe they have the unedited version on YouTube. Anyway I’m gonna try this whole “Saturday Night Dead” (real original name, I know, haha) thing on here in which I will post a different horror movie from YouTube every Saturday night. Simple enough, eh?

After doing casting in Los Angeles and New York, the role of Jake in Evil Dead 2 was still not filled in which was frustrating Sam Raimi. It wasn’t until Danny Hicks auditioned that the role was awarded to him. It turned out that if they didn’t find anyone in Detroit, Sam Raimi was going to play Jake himself.
