Maria panics and opens the door, but sees no one. A direct sequel is probably ill advised, as these tend to butcher the franchise and have so far only been done right in Insidious: Part 2 and even that film wasn't as good as the first. His portraying of the strong husband, trying to be an island of strength and normalcy in his wife's depression while quietly trying to cope with his loss himself, is impressive and simply profound. She was one of the worst parts of the first few seasons and I was just fine when she exited the series, spoiler alert but if you really care you would probably know by now. Again, I felt as if the cinematography really captured some simplistic scenes, how the camera slowly panned toward the creepy factor, overall succeeding for keeping the audience at high tension! The strong performance goes a long way to build up dread, in fact a lot of the terrifying scenes work because she, in a sense, sells them so well. It was a pretty good movie, nothing spectacular, but worth a watch.
Well that is because this has happened already this year with The Forest. If you watch this film you won't be disappointed, just don't expect a night of sleeping with the lights on. Plus Points: 1 Plot: Plot of The Other Side of the Door is interesting one. Bringing it all together are Callies and Sisto. Let's start with the con's of this film.
Although it's not groundbreaking horror, The Other Side of the Door is an still efficient ghost story. The Good: I know a lot of peeps don't like her, but I think Sarah Wayne Callies has a great presence and a naturalness to her performances that I enjoy. Well, let's start with the -ahem - plot. I'm fairly critical of horror films these days being a long time horror fan , but I can genuinely say I thought this was brilliant. It has the third highest number of adherents worldwide behind Christianity and Islam and is the major religion of India, the world's second most populous country, where 80% of its 1. Not good enough to waste your time on. However, the cast and presentation deliver confidently.
La donna scopre così una misteriosa porta, il confine tra il mondo dei vivi e dei morti. Instead of being more of a horror film, maybe this film was more about a wife who is struggling in her marriage because of the loss of her child because a lot of that was expressed in this film. It has a few excellently timed jump scenes that work really well. I'd recommend this to provoke horror fans, but if you're not looking for clichés steer clear. 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 Side of the Door benefits from a refreshing change of setting in its Indian locale.
The movie had a similar vibe to The Grudge in that it used another country's culture to create a disturbing atmosphere for its characters. She enters Oliver's room and tells him that he can't hurt Lucy. Desperate for closure, Maria learns of a ritual where she can speak to her son one last time. Badly acted, badly written, not even scary. There was no hint to this when he was alive and no back story. But when she ignores a warning not to open the temple door, the balance between life and death is upset, leading to unimaginable terror. The cinematography really captured some unnerving shots that'll have you on the edge of your seat, expecting something to happen, when really nothing does.
It's been a few months since my last Horror film, and I must start off by saying I'm very glad I've chosen The Other Side of the Door to ease myself back into it! It's been done, especially a bunch of times in your theatrical horror film releases. If you're considering watching this, do it, it's worth the 1 hour 35. Starring Sarah Wayne Callies, Jeremy Sisto, Javier Botet, and Sofia Rosinsky, the film was released in the United Kingdom and the United States on March 4, 2016. It was a little something new, that I hadn't really seen in North American films. Jeremy Sisto is also a decent addition as the concerned husband and father. There are a couple of genuinely scary scenes, but there are a few more that just cop out on a jump scare.
Horror movies have come up with an interesting trend in 2016, possibly not a new one, but it is an awful one. A family suffers a tragedy, and while trying to cope begins to experience a supernatural haunting. She returns home the next day; now having closure, she focuses her attention on Michael and Lucy, but doesn't tell Piki that she opened the door. Piki explains that they are shamans who consume the flesh of the dead and coat themselves in ash to strengthen their bonds between the worlds of the living and the dead. Everything seems fine, but unfortunately she is struck by a tragic accident. In terms of scares, The Other Side of the Door is inconsistent at best. Strange things start happening; their piano plays itself and Lucy tells Maria that Oliver has come back and that he is hiding from someone.

Something an actor can easily miss the mark on, and fail upon. The next day Maria arrives at the temple and follows Piki's instructions. Hinduism is a culture, a philosophy and, of course, a religion. I liked that it was set in India and incorporated some of the Indian religions and customs. Again, something these horror movies easily miss. You won't get much in the way of actual insight into the Hindu religion, but its beliefs provide an interesting foundation for the film's story.
Couldn't help but notice that I saw 4 or 5 people leave midway through the film, and not returning. She gave good performance as grief stricken mother who wants to bring her dead son back. 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. The actors really did well portraying a broken, sad, and lost couple of which are slowly recovering a tragic event. No, 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. Most movies they can get annoying, or boring, but the movie kept it at a smooth, solid execution, saving it.
Her only warning is to not open the door, but, in typical horror movie fashion, Maria opens the door. Instead of the typical British or American creaky house, we're transported to India, and its colours and sunshine, it certainly makes you see a horror film differently. I would definitely recommend this film, had a great time watching it! Good Christ, don't these people ever learn? Maria agrees and the pair have Oliver's body exhumed and burned. Often times characters are over dramatic, but Lucy felt under-dramatic, even if it meant portraying a more accurate seven year old's coping with the loss of her brother and the deterioration of her mother. Other are clichéd and not that scary. For the first forty minutes very little happens, we get back story, plot, but little action, it's more creepy then scary.
