Four teenagers, Malik, Gem, Barbie and Wes, take a excursion to an old series of mine tunnels under the border area of California and Mexico where they, and a few other people traveling by, become trapped and are soon set upon by ghosts of a series of victims who are under the control of a warlock bent on carnage.

After Gen runs outside to greet Wes, the image is reversed. You can tell, as the name on Gen's shirt is reversed and the logo on Malik's shirt is reversed. This appears to have been intentional, to maintain the continuity of the vehicle being on the right and the house on the left. See more »
Intermedio could have been much better but also much worse. What was actually disappointing about the movie was that it did have potential, but it doesn't live up to it. It does get some redeeming qualities because some of the settings are eerie, the opening is atmospheric in a creepy sense and some of the killings were inventive. The special effects for the ghosts are not that great, but at the same time I have seen much worse. Unfortunately, Intermedio is a movie where there is a movie more bad than good. It is often very murky to look at, with overly-dark lighting, and it is very choppily shot and edited. The sound effects and such are often too obvious and overbear the dialogue a lot. But in regards to the dialogue actually, you're not missing all that much because it is terrible, very stilted and doesn't go anywhere. It also felt very improvised, I commented on another movie recently that the dialogue reminded me of an episode of Ghost Hunters or something, and I got a similar vibe here as well. The characters as a consequence come across as obnoxious and are never developed enough to make us properly care for them. The acting does little to change that either, to sum it up in one word it is rather amateurish, loud panting when running around for example is not really a sign of good acting. But I think it was the story that really dragged Intermedio down, it is very stodgily paced, with nothing in the atmosphere to make the movie truly unsettling and you learn nothing about the ghosts other than that they're tortured predators. It also doesn't know what kind of movie it wants to be, it starts off being a creature horror then as a revenge thriller, these two styles couldn't have been more different and it jarred and dilutes any kind of tension that the opening sequence gave the impression it would. Add to that a contrived ending, and you have overall a jumbled mess with some redeeming values. 4/10 Bethany Cox
