Eureka! Entertainment have announced the release of THE OTHER. With the same haunting tension as The Exorcist and The Omen, director Robert Mulligan’s The Other eschews gore in favour of richly detailed psychological horror in its depiction of deeply disturbed children. Beautifully shot and adapted for the screen from the best-selling novel of the same name, The Other, is an unsettling horror masterpiece released on Blu-ray in a Dual Format (Blu-ray and DVD edition) as part of the Eureka Classics collection on 23 February 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 best-selling novel The Other is an unsettling horror masterpiece.

SPECIAL DUAL FORMAT (BLU-RAY + DVD) EDITION:

• Stunning new transfer of the film in its original aspect ratio in 1080p on the Blu-ray with a progressive encode on the DVD
• Optional English SDH
• Original theatrical trailer
• 24-PAGE BOOK with a new essay by Aaron Hillis, and more.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.

  1. Smart and allegorical little horror rich with “clues” (“the changeling”, civil war and pre depression era setting) is perhaps a parable about American history and the death of innocence. An existential crisis reminiscent of Herodotus’ tale of Hera’s two sons, or as Billie Joel sang, only the good die young.
