OTHER SIDE OF THE DOOR REVIEWED
“The Other Side of the Door” follows a grieving mother, as she wants a chance to say goodbye to her dead son. She takes part in a bizarre ritual that allows her to break the barrier between the living and the dead. Now, dead kids and other ghoulies are finding their way into her life. Most of the film is a young family making peace with their loss. But, that doesn’t make for interesting horror movies. So, we have dead kids turning evil due to occult tampering.
The dead little boy possesses his daughter and the parents go crazy trying to set things right. While the movie works its ass off to shoot in near pitch black conditions, the material grows predictable. There are traces of incredible horror movie here, but what makes it any different than the other post 2000 tax shelter horror movies? So many of these movies could’ve existed as part of a larger anthology. It’s just stretching them out to feature length makes them unbearable. The ending is quality, though. However, it takes too long to get there.
