Vintage Trailer of the Day: The Intruder Within (1981)

I know very little about this made-for-TV rip-off of Alien, but when Shannon Shea mentions something like this in his column, it’s time to check it out. Fortunately, the trailer sells the hell out of the movie.

All that matters is lines like this: “A strange, unknown creature so powerful it lies dormant for centuries surviving for one purpose…to someday return…and rule this land.”

Rule this land? Is the creature King Arthur?

Probably not, but The Intruder Within looks truly inspired. Wait. Is that Michael Hogan? It is! Why am I not watching this movie right now?
