Intruder channel 5 review: Channel 5 prefers four-night dramas, though The Drowning appeared to have slipped through quality control unnoticed on its way to the screen. However, it drew in the audience, and Intruder is likely to do the same. Gareth Tunley (creator of the 2016 psychological thriller The Ghoul) wrote and directed the film, which is about what happens when two teenagers break into Sam and Rebecca Hickey’s luxurious country home (Tom Meeten and Elaine Cassidy).
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.
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 realizes that he could be indicted for assassination because his victim did not assail him and tried to get away.
