Eureka Entertainment are deservedly well known for their excellent high-definition releases of classic cinema – and next on the list is Robert Mulligan’s 1972 creep-fest The Other! *whispers* Holland… Holland… it’s out on February 23, 2015…
A genuinely chilling psychological horror from director Robert Mulligan (To Kill a Mockingbird), The Other provides enough gruesome twists and turns to keep you guessing right up until its shocking finale.
Mysterious accidents befall a family on a farm in Depression-era Connecticut, resulting in the death of a beloved father and a cherished twin brother. But when nine-year-old Holland begins to see – and speak to – his twin, the remaining family members can only wait in terrified anticipation for more tragedies to occur… as it slowly dawns on them that the accidents may not be accidental after all.
With the same haunting tension as The Exorcist and The Omen, Mulligan’s The Other eschews gore in favour of richly detailed psychological horror in its depiction of deeply disturbed children. Beautifully shot by the extraordinary Robert Surges (Ben Hur) and adapted for the screen by Thomas Tryon from his own bestselling novel, The Other is an unsettling horror masterpiece. It stars Uta Hagen, Diana Muldaur, Victor French, John Ritter, Chris Udvarnoky, and Martin Udvarnoky.
