“An agent of UNESCO (nothing to do with the organization UN Protection of Cultural Heritage) discovers that a bottle of wine produced by a famous Italian wine is contained blood. The scene shifts Emilia-Romagna early 70s. A couple of hippies in their wanderings, they come across a certain Antonio accompanying them in the house where he lives with his sister and brother in law. In the sumptuous dwelling the two young people encounter strange characters: a gypsy woman, a prostitute and a disturbing drunk (Lucio Dalla). The host calms them by saying that he is only a producer of wines and loves to entertain strange people. In fact, Mr. Anthony is a madman who has created a mechanism, a kind of robot that can suck blood from human bodies.” [CG]

Intruder – Workprint

Title: Intruder (Night Crew) ~Workprint~
Production: USA 1989
Director: Scott Spiegel
Cast: Elizabeth Cox, Renée Estevez
Run Time: 90min
Circulation: NTSC DVDr
Generation/Source: VHS Master
Language:  English
Subtitles: None

“This is the original “rough edit” of Intruder (aka Night Crew). There are no credits and the film is not mixed with final music or sound effects. What you will see is the earliest assembly of Intruder, containing different edits and scenes not in the final released version. You can even hear the director talking, off camera, to the actors during the filming of some scenes. This version existed on an old VHS tape found by the film’s director. Quality is a bit rough at times, with occasional dropouts and glitches inherent in the VHS format. Because of the alternate content of this particular version, we felt it was still interesting enough to release for the fans.”
