INTRUDERS - INTRUSOS cover image
Intruders is a very intriguing short film. The dialogue is in Spanish with English subtitles and it made in the USA. It really makes you think about the difficult situation that immigrants are faced with when coming to the U.S. The subject is very serious, but also digestible for younger viewers, which is amazing. The story might be difficult for some to understand, but this film does it very well and is definitely entertaining and interesting at the same time.

The film follows a group of students in Florida that go to an abandoned house to shoot a short film. When rumors of the house being haunted begin to spread, panic ensues.

Not many films that aren't documentaries attempt to teach about the struggles of immigrants. How this film presents that in the storyline is interesting and, even for younger kids, is easy to relate to. The story is very entertaining; some parts are even quite funny. There is something about watching kids running around trying to figure out why supernatural events are happening that is so fun to watch!

The camera work is quite acceptable. One particularly interesting shot takes place, near the end of the film, when they do almost a looping shot around a room. The costumes are very appropriate for the time and place, which is current day, in Florida. There are two different locations used - the bus and the house. Both locations are right on point. The house is supposed to be abandoned in such a way that no one wants to buy it. The house seems a little too clean for being abandoned, but you can overlook that. What has the most impact on this film is definitely the sound effects. At times, the audio and video seem a bit out of sync and the youth actors are a bit flat at times, but neither detract too much from the film. Also, the subtitles are slightly off. I do recommend that the filmmaker fix those before it is exhibited.

The message of this film is "it is important that you listen to other people's stories, even if they will never apply to you."

I learned about how difficult immigrating is at school. However, watching this film made me realize how much more I have to learn on this topic.

I give Intruders 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 10 to 18, plus adults. This film would be an excellent way to teach kids about immigration issues and it is definitely entertaining. It would play well as KIDS FIRST! Film Festivals, especially those focused on social issues. Reviewed by Exxie P., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic

This short film explores values ??such as teamwork, friendship, solidarity, equality and equity. A group of students from an arts school organize and review pending projects for the production of a short film that represents their final cycle work and, with it, the opportunity to advance to the next grade. The day of filming, already at the house that will be a filming location and while the equipment, props and so on go down, someone watches them from the inside. No one in the group realizes that they are being watched, much less the experience that awaits them.
