You feel that tingle in your pants? That can mean one of two things – and one of those things is that it’s time for another edition of Sunday Bloody Sunday! The weekly feature where I applaud your favorite gore scenes in picture form, like the good ol’ days of thumbing through a Fangoria magazine. This week, I tackle an underrated slasher from 1989 called Intruder.
Directed by Scott Spiegel (co-writer of Evil Dead 2 and personal friend of Sam Raimi), Intruder takes a supermarket setting and a ‘who is the killer among us’ plot and throws in a ton of gore gags courtesy of some early work by the KNB efx crew. And it’s these gore gags that make this slasher stand out, with the highlight being a band saw kill where a poor bastard has his head literally sawed in half. So I’m spotlighting that kill this week as well as a bonus kill of director (and actor) Sam Raimi meeting his demise by a meat hook. Justice served for Spiderman 3. Enjoy, and if you’ve seen Intruder, feel free to spill your thoughts about it:
