Mysterious accidents befall a family on a farm in depression-era Connecticut resulting in the death of a beloved father and a cherished twin brother. But when nine-year-old Niles begins to see and speak to his twin, Holland, the remaining family members, including concerned grandmother Ada (Uta Hagen), can only wait in terrified anticipation for more tragedies to occur… as it slowly dawns on them that the accidents may not be accidental after all.
Adapted for the screen by Thomas Tryon from his own bestselling 1971 novel, and beautifully shot by acclaimed cinematographer Robert Surtees (Ben-Hur) The Other is a genuinely chilling psychological horror from To Kill A Mockingbird director Robert Mulligan, which eschews gore in favour of richly detailed psychological horror in its depiction of a deeply disturbed child.
