Writer-director Gregg Bishop supposed made this 2006 film guerilla-style for $15,000 in Atlanta, and by that standard the results are pretty impressive. While watching the film I was wondering why they seemed to always being filming during the day time and not having the money to shoot at night, or on real sets, or with lots of special effects, would pretty much explain it. That being said, it is ironic that "The Other Side" reminded me of "...Read more ›
THE OTHER SIDE is not quite a horror film. It's more of a theological thriller/action film. A young man escapes from Hell, along with others. Back on Earth, they are hunted by "reapers" -- kick-ass demons who seek to return them to Hell.
There are three "Reaper" demons. Two men who dress retro -- trench coats and black fedoras. And a young goth chick who is your typical Lara Croft/Resident Evil leather-clad, kick-ass femme soldier. (She was poorly cast in this film -- the actress is petite, and the role calls for a tall, Amazonian, bodybuilder type woman).
Even so, the entire cast performs competently. That's rare for a low-budget film. (The filmmaker claims it cost $15,000, but it looks way more expensive -- of course, filmmakers often lie about budgets, so who knows if it's true in this case?)
THE OTHER SIDE has some very impressive stunts and martial arts for a low-budgeter, especially several falls from balconies -- including one in which the guy lands in the back of a moving pickup truck.
The script is well-plotted, with some nice twists and turns, some unexpected.
This is not a scary horror film, but an action-packed theological thriller. The escapees from Hell must redeem themselves while back on Earth before the Reapers inevitably kill them.Read more ›
The chase scenes had a "Terminator" quality to them. The movie was too complex for what they were trying to do. Coming back from the dead and trying to avoid the Reapers is movie enough, but they added a twist in a dead, now alive, guy's (Sam) missing girlfriend. If that wasn't enough, they blindside you with an incredible plot twist, involving his brother, the dead girlfriend, and a once dead oriental man, who apparently has eluded the reaper for quite some time now.
This is a low budget film. Normally I judge low budget film the same as a $200 million dollar film. In this case I thought this film was worth the view so you can see the quality film $15,000 can get you. The script needed some tightening up, but I liked the concept.
