Intruder channel 5 review: Channel 5 is part of its four-night drama but recent efforts seem to be overlooked by the Quality Control Department on the road to the screen. However, it drew in the viewers, and Intruder will most likely do the same. With Hickeys and her fine friends hovering the polished Andean mood-enhancer and talking totally the opening party sequence clearly defines the defective and self-delusive characters that we have here to face.
Gareth Tunley (creator of 2016’s psychological thriller The Ghoul) wrote and directed the film, which is about what happens when a pair of youths break into Sam and Rebecca Hickey’s luxurious country home (Tom Meeten and Elaine Cassidy).
They disturb Sam by tormenting the house and one (Syed) trying to escape via a window, which Sam stabs him in the back fatally. A shocked Rebecca insists that the police should be called, but a panicked Sam realises that he could be indicted for assassination because his victim did not assail him and tried to get away.
After a party that night, Sam, Rebecca, and her boyfriend Angela trickled the evidence to make it look like Syed had attacked Sam and Rebecca, kneading him to save his husband.
Sam operates as a TV host on the London Chat Radio station, which appears virtually identical to the LBC to the great idents of the station and would be in a perfect 10am weekend slot with a hectory and authentic tonic. However, it’s bizarre that London Chat Radio looks like a West Country radio station, but in fact the show has been recorded in Ireland (as was The Drowning).
