Plus, with the two formidable actors as the protagonists, Logan Marshall-Green and Freida Pinto, you’re sure to be entertained from start to finish.

Intrusion isn’t one of Netflix’s best original movies, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth watching. One good thing this movie does is keep the suspense going, and just as the main character Meera (Pinto) begins to distrust her husband Henry (Marshall-Green), so do the audiences.

It’s not completely unpredictable at the end and the movie would have benefited from a bit more explanation and character development, but with a cool 93 minute runtime, Intrusion follow up on what he intends to do. So what exactly happens at the end? Let’s get into it.

Spoilers ahead for Intrusion.

What is Intrusion?

The basic premise of Intrusion goes like this: a married couple move to a new home across the country hoping to start a new life. Meera is a cancer survivor, and she and her husband come to terms with their trauma by building a beautiful new home and moving out. They seem to be really strong at the start of the movie, but soon Meera begins to realize that all is not as it seems.

Sadly, the two are the victims of a home invasion one night when three men break into their home. To Meera’s surprise, Henry has a gun in the house and he shoots the burglars. A few days later, Meera is shaken but Henry does not seem at all disturbed.

Authorities inform the couple that the men who broke into their home lived in a nearby trailer park and that a family member, Christine Cobb, is missing. They show Meera and Henry pictures of her before sending them on their way.

One night soon after, Henry heads to the next town to buy party supplies for their next housewarming party, only to leave his wallet at home. Meera decides to drive after him with his wallet so he doesn’t have to go all the way there and back. To her surprise, Henry takes an unexpected turn and she is suspicious of where he is going. Before she can continue to follow him, however, she has a car accident.

Meera is thankfully doing well, but she begins to be sketched out by Henry. The next day, she takes Henry’s car to work while hers is in the garage and decides to check his GPS history. Once she finds an unknown address she drives there and it ends up being the trailer park. She bravely walks through the Cobb House and finds a letter from Henry’s architectural firm, meaning they had a connection that Henry never told her about.

It certainly feels like at this point that Henry is evil, or at least has something to do with Christine’s disappearance.

Before leaving the trailer park, Meera goes through Dylan Cobb’s mail and finds a video camera addressed to the police. Later in the movie, she sneaks into Henry’s office and finds a reader with photos of their house being built. In the photos, she sees not only Dylan, but also Christine. Shocked, she ends up confronting Henry about the photos and demands answers.

Henry seems clear in telling Meera that because he was strapped for cash while building their house, he hired some guys under the table. Dylan was one of the household employees, and after Henry fired him, he continued to send him money in the mail. Henry claims that Dylan and the other men invaded their house because he stopped sending money.

Meera and Henry reconcile after this and decide to leave it all in the past, but during their housewarming party, Meera decides to take a closer look. She uses the video camera memory card she finds in Dylan’s mail and looks at what he was planning to send to the police. In the video, Dylan suggests that Henry has something to do with Christine’s disappearance.

How does the intrusion end?

Determined to uncover the truth, Meera returns to Henry’s office during the housewarming party and discovers a secret basement. She goes down there and finds Christine glued to a chair! That’s when our suspicions come true – Henry is the bad guy, and he actually kidnapped Christine and kept her in their house the entire time.

Throughout the movie, we heard random pipe hits that Meera likely attributed to the plumbing. In fact, it was really Christine who was being held hostage, trying to make noise for someone to come and help her.

In the end, Henry sends their guests home and goes down to the basement. He admits he’s the culprit and wants Meera to support him like she did when she was battling cancer. Fortunately, Meera doesn’t give in, and instead, she is able to hit him on the head with a clock – the same clock Henry gave her on their first date.

Henry is apparently dead and the final scene shows the house being sold and Meera presumably going on with her life. As for a sequel, there hasn’t been much discussion of a Intrusion 2, but while the movie isn’t on a cliffhanger, there’s still a chance Henry is still alive. We haven’t seen his body buried, so you never know. There could be a story for a sequel.

Until we hear anything make sure to broadcast Intrusion on Netflix right now!
