Product Description

Like most 12-year-olds, Niles and Holland like to get into mischief. The only problem is when Holland gets into mischief, people have a funny way of "accidentally" dying. Niles knows that Holland is responsible for all the gruesome accidents happening in the neighborhood - the pitchfork hidden in the hay, the severed finger in the box, the baby in the wine barrel. He knows but dare not tell anyone, not even his beloved grandmother Ada (Uta Hagen), that Holland is the evil twin¿or is he?

5.0 out of 5 stars the other Sept. 3 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This is by far one of the greatest movies I have ever seen. The story is incredible. I'm surprised no one tried to remake this flim, clearly overlooked. This is a true movie lover's horror flim. Some one with sense, not for people who want to see heads chopped off, and a lot of blood. This movie will make you rewind (due to the fact it's not on dvd) and watch over and over.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you've seen it once: it will never leave you Aug. 16 2007
By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Interesting suspense film along the lines of movies like "The Bad Seed", this effective little shocker that evolved from the early 1970s is surprisingly a good movie. I wasn't expecting much from it, and the cover of the DVD led me to believe it was something along the lines of "The Omen", but I was pleasantly surprised with how the film turned out. It's an effective little horror movie with plenty of twists and turns, a clever script, and some pretty good acting. Set in an unnamed American farming township in 1935, the story revolves around eleven-year-old Niles Perry and his identical twin brother Holland. Portrayed by can't-tell-'em-apart twins Chris and Martin Udvarnoky, Niles and Holland are part of an extended family whose matriarch is Ada (legendary German actress Uta Hagen). The boys' father is dead, and their mother (Diana Muldaur) spends most of her screen time traipsing dourly about the homestead.

From the get-go, Niles is obviously the well-behaved one of the two, as well as the 'follower' in their relationship. Holland resorts to various mischief, often landing his twin into trouble in his stead. There's some sort of family heirloom in a clandestine tobacco tin which Holland has apparently relinquished to Niles, who doesn't seem to want it. A traveling circus comes to the area, featuring a sleight-of-hand magician who inspires the boys. Ada is a wisened old Russian immigrant, and she shares a special bond with Niles which seems to be clairvoyant in nature. When the twins' mother is paralyzed in a tragic fall after confronting them about the mysterious heirloom, Ada realizes that she must set right a great evil which she had unknowingly set off some time before.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the scariest movies ever made! Nov. 24 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The Other should be a classic, but is so severly over-looked! This should be seen only by people who like psychological horror films. This isn't for the Scream-Generation, this is for intelligent people. Now I must compare this movie to The Omen and The Exorcist. Let's see, in my oppinion The Exorcist and The Omen are scarier. Sorry if that offends anyone, but that is the honest truth. This film however has a much better story that those two, and dare I say better actors? Sure why not. This is a very scary and disturbing movie, kind of a mix between The Good Son, The Shining, and The Omen. But this is an original masterpiece that has yet to be copied. This is not for casual horror buffs, this is for the ones that like more than random sex and blood in there movies. The Other is a criminally underated and should be taken seriously. WHERE THE HECK IS THE DVD!!!! Watch this one alone in the dark for the ultimate effect!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gothic Heartland July 8 2004
Format:VHS Tape
This film holds up well in the decades since its release. It was filmed boldly in color, and yet director Robert Mulligan still maintained the "feel" of the Depression in 1935 Connecticut. This was a world he perfected in 1962 with his classic film, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. The script by Tom Tryon, from his own novel, was fraught with challenges for the minds and hearts of the viewers.
Twins Chris and Martin Udvarnoky were perfectly cast as twins Niles and Holland Perry. They had been discovered doing plays for Herbert Berghof, who just happened to be married to Uta Hagen. This movie was the only film work the twins ever did. They just seemed to drop out of sight afterward, heightening the reality of their performances. When I first saw this film in a theatre in 1972, I bought the extant twins premise. It was skillfully handled visually by Mulligan. I was strung along until midway when Uta Hagen, as the grandmother Ada Perry, revealed to the young Niles that his "bad" brother, Holland, had been dead for a year.
The movie worked on two levels successfully. There was a sun-kissed rural 1930's heartland, a kid's woodland paradise, on the one hand; great spans of forest and field, old barns, and dark mysterious cellars. Juxtaposed to that, overlapping and intermeshing with that, we discovered a Gothic plot; complete with a doomed family haunted by dark psychic powers, whose family crest was a peregrine falcon, for their name Perry, emblazoned on an heirloom ring, and on the creaking weathervane high atop the Victorian style house. Murder stalked the Perry farm, and spread out to the neighbors; murder disguised as accident.
Mulligan orchestrated wonderful touching moments between Uta Hagen and young Chris as Niles...
