Very underrated horror, not scream bloody gore type (by BignProud)
First of all, it is very difficult to make an adult scared, really scared in a movie when you are surrounded by other people ; just watch it home along and that would be the real rate .. and frankly I would not. Anyway, decided to change London has fallen to this one instead and what a surprise it was ! I can not say it is a masterpiece but it is very solid horror movie that - I am so surprised no one mentioned this before - so heavily reminds of Stephen King's Pet Cemetery. There is no stupid screams that make you jump because it is just loud or blood splashing all over the screen. No, <more>
what it does instead though is giving us an emotional insight into a family drama while creating an uneasy and disturbing atmosphere that grips your stomach till the very end.
In my opinion this is up there with one of the best horror films so far this year. I genuinely enjoyed watching this and thought it was gripping throughout.It has a few excellently timed jump scenes that work really well. The overall storyline is fantastic and intriguing, the film keeps you gripped throughout and the atmosphere throughout is great.I especially like how the film is set in India and so we get a whole new twist/view of the horror concept mixed with another culture.I've seen Sarah Wayne Callies in Prison Break before, but she was outstanding in this!I'm fairly critical of <more>
horror films these days being a long time horror fan , but I can genuinely say I thought this was brilliant.
It is rare for horror movies to be this good, so I really don't understand what the low rating is for.The cinematography, acting, atmosphere and music score were perfect. They had tried to employ a lot of jump scares, but only two or three of them really got me. The Japanese type evil ghost, which was supposed to make us terrified and jump out of our seats, didn't really work for me. Either it's because my eyes were aching while watching this movie or it's because I found it to be distracting for its belonging to Japanese horror movies. The best jump scare scenes were those <more>
involving the boy himself. At least three or four scenes sent chills down my spine I'm not talking about the jump scares . It's very rare for a horror movie to make me feel such real fear. The story itself was very decent and different. The ending came as a big surprise, too. I completely agree with one reviewer who said it would have been better if we knew more about the boy when he was still alive. The movie had room for improvement, but frankly speaking, this is one of the most well-executed horror movies of the past 5 years. This is not a 5+ horror movie. It's easily a 6+. Strongly recommended.
I've read a lot of bad reviews slating this movie, I get why. Don't go into this movie expecting a great horror movie, it's not really a horror. It is however a really good tragedy which is portrayed using a medium of creepy devices. If you leave this movie and all you have is 'lame jump scares', you're missing the point of the story. If you're considering watching this, do it, it's worth the 1 hour 35. Each of the actors does a pretty stand up job, the direction and photography went well, my only gripe would be the editing. The flow of the story looked like it <more>
wanted to be a horror movie, when it should have looked like a 'Del Toro'.
I enjoyed this movie. It had what a horror movie should have, nothing more , nothing less. However the story did remind me of Pet Cemetery where there is a tragic loss of a young male child and the parent is so grief stricken they will do anything to see them again. Even if it means horrible things will occur because of their actions. Being a parent myself I could relate to the main character and how she felt she needed closure after such a terrible accident which took her son. I was familiar with the actress from the Walking Dead series so I knew she would deliver. The little girl also does <more>
a great job playing the possessed instrument of evil for the final moments of the film. There are some "jump out" scares but I believe the lead actress does a good job of playing a woman who is first pleased then regrets what she has done to her son & her family by not heeding the warning she was given before the ritual. It was a good movie and had all the elements Pet Cemetery had way back when, evil dead kid, grieving parent, "the warning" don't do this but character does just that. Worth a watch.
Its themes will linger with you much longer than any other supernatural horror this year. (by jordanhuntgeneral)
Prison Break's Sarah Wayne Callies carries this British-Indian horror production with the same demeanour as her more familiar role; maternal enough to sell the film's major theme, yet strong enough to carry the entire feature. This, after all, is what Callies is tasked with, as the grieving mother she portrays invites her dead son's spirit back to the world of the living with inevitably chilling consequences.While the majority of studio horror nowadays is bound by so many stipulations - the jump scares, the teenage cast demographics - that ultimately render it generic, The Other <more>
Side of the Door benefits from a refreshing change of setting in its Indian locale. As a result, not only does the film look elegantly beautiful with its colours and scenery, but its plot also benefits from a less familiar cultural angle than most supernatural thrillers are afforded. The central menace here - a temple doorway through which the living can contact the dead - is so far removed from Western ideology and the recurring origins of its horror movie monsters that the film undeniably offers something that is at least different, if not completely new. The second act, where things go bump in the night as Maria questions the nature of the spirit she's allowed back into her home, is admittedly routine, but that's not the issue with modern horror; the issue is whether or not it can at least try to overcome this mundane narrative.This is where the screenplay's wider themes come in to sharper focus, as the audience encourages Maria to make the right choices while sympathising with her fragile state of mind. The horror isn't simply limited to creepy children and unseen entities, but also the lengths a parent is compelled to go to in order to be reunited with a lost child. It's most certainly enough to make the more pedestrian scares forgivable as you witness a family being torn further apart by their loss just as much they are the shadows that lurk around them.The Other Side of the Door won't terrify you any more than any other supernatural horror released this year, and that's because, by now, genre aficionados really have seen it all. What it will do, however, is linger with you much longer as you place yourselves in the shoes of an emotionally drained mother who, you understand, would do anything to see her son again.
