The Other movie scene

Uta Hagen learns her grandsons are connected to a series of fatal accidents in 1972's The Other.

The 1972 horror-mystery film The Other, one of the creepier “twins” fright flicks of the Seventies, makes its Stateside Blu-ray debut from Twilight time in October.

It’s the summer of 1935, and twins Niles (Chris Udvarnoky) and Holland (Martin Udvarnoky) spend all their time on the family farm in Connecticut , sometimes congregating in the cellar, though it is prohibited due to their father’s death by falling down the cellar stairs. Their grief-stricken mother (Diana Muldaur) passes most days in her bedroom, while their sister, Torrie (Jenny Sullivan), and her husband, Rider ( John Ritter), are expecting a child soon. Then, the first of a serious of fatal accidents occurs…

Based on actor-turned-novelist Thomas Tryon’s novel of the same name and adapted for the screen by the author, The Other was directed by Robert Mulligan (To Kill a Mockingbird) and also stars Uta Hagen as the boys’ loving grandmother who begins to see the truth behind the accidents.

Bonus features on the Blu-ray include an isolated score track and the original theatrical trailer.

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, be prepared to pre-order this one directly from distributor Screen Archives on September 18, the official prebook date.
