Review: Other (Video 2011)
First I´d like to thank Daniel DelPurgatario for providing a screener!
Patrick (David Steiger) is a brilliant doctor, in an obsessive race to alter his own grim prognosis. During a series of unconventional experiments, he discovers a scientific loophole unlike anything he had ever imagined. In pursuit of this dark prize, Patrick will risk everything to ensure he sees his experiment to the end...even if it means accepting the sinister results. Other is written by Rob Foster, Anthony R. Williams and Daniel DelPurgatario who also is the director. Professionally shot and edited, this is a good looking short film (running time just under 15 minutes), David Steiger is very good as Patrick and he´s the only actor to appear in the film so he carries it on his shoulders. I think that the soundtrack is nothing less than fantastic. The make-up fx are very good, there is no gore but this is not a film that is expected to rely on blood and guts.
This review is based upon a passwordprotected online screener provided by the director of the film.
Rating: 7 out of 7. I loved Other and I´m very curious to see what Daniel DelPurgatario will come up with next! Other gets my highest recommendations!
