The Intruder features Dennis Quaid as the neighbor from hell in this real estate thriller from Deon Taylor (Meet the Blacks). Screenwriter David Loughery (Lakeview Terrace) seems to specialize in the home invasion thriller. This one deals with an attractive, well-to-do married couple (Michael Ealy and Meagan Good) who purchase a Napa Valley estate and discover that the seller has a psychopathic attachment to the place. Developed under the title Motivated Seller, the film is purportedly a loose remake of 2003's Cold Creek Manor.
