Trailer & Film Verdict : ‘Intermate’

Trippy new sci-fi film hails from the director of Revenge of the Cheerleaders

The trailer for a new Richard Lerner directed flick, Intermate, hit the interwebs this past week.

A trippy new romp from cult director Richard Lerner (Revenge of the Cheerleaders), INTERMATE is a campy sci-fi flick, with psychedelic effects, that tells of three women in a parallel universe who play a blind date reality game to experience euphoria.
Vedette Lim, Maya Stojan and Allison Dunbar star in a film written by Richard Lerner and John Powers, on digital platforms November 4.

Synopsis : Inside a space habitat in a parallel universe, three young women play the blind date reality game InterMate in order to experience the euphoria of the flashout. Unexpectedly they find themselves trapped on Earth seeking the missing player of their game. They encounter a jogger, a rocker, a biker, an exploitative owner of an escort service, a radio telescope supervisor, and others vulnerable to their ecstatic flashout. All the while they are pursued by an awkward Reality Repairman whose assignment is to seal the hole between realities before the Multiverse is permanently altered.

Directed and produced by Richard Lerner and written by Wayne Weber, John Powers, and Richard Lerner, INTERMATE stars Jonathan Goldstein, Lauren Swickard, Maya Stojan, Malea Rose and Gerard Downey.

I had a look at the film over the weekend – and you know,. it’s not half as bad as that amateurish artwork or non-existent budget would suggest. What it reminded me of was Roger Corman’s unreleased Fantastic Four movie or, for that matter, a Corman meets Troma movie. There’s a real audience for this kinda stuff – sexy sci-fi stuff that a teen can legally rent to get their kicks in both departments. So definitely consider it a fitting movie for that next beer n’ pizza night.

Is Norrin Radd coming to the big screen or small screen!?
