Intruders (15)

The Independent Culture

Two imaginative children, Mia (Ella Purnell) in London and Juan (Izá* Corchero) in Madrid, are haunted by Hollow Face, a beast who steals children's faces.

Concerned by their children's fears, Mia's father (Clive Owen) and Juan's mother (Pilar López de Ayala) seek advice in a shrink and a priest respectively. The spooky scenes in Spain are more effective than the English ones in Fresnadillo's feeble chiller; it's like a weak episode of Tales of the Unexpected.
