The Other

The Other is an Independent film.

The trailer was really a short teaser, only 30 seconds.  It appears to be one man's internal struggle with external choices.  The only dialogue is a voice-over at the very beginning of the trailer: This was never about death, this was always about life.

Then it's a man and his "machine" of sorts and what looks to be his experiments.  There is what appears to be hope, then pain, then more pain, then apparent madness. It's a true teaser because very little is given, let alone given away.  The visuals were kind of cool and the music was perfect.  I watched the teaser twice and disjointed thoughts popped randomly into my head. It was like the answers were on the tip of my tongue but I couldn't articulate them. 

I had to cheat.  I had to read the synopsis, which is not really cheating because in the early days of Beerbohmtastic I occasionally reviewed a film based on its synopsis.  Yeah, I know, it's even sillier than trailer reviews but again, I digress.

Once I read the synopsis for The Other, I watched the trailer again and the disjointed thoughts became clearer thoughts.  This is the order of my thoughts: doctor/scientist discovers he is terminally ill.  He somehow discovers a way to cure/slow down his illness, the procedure is both painful and may or may not alter his genetic make-up.  Altering his genetic make-up may cause a Jeckyll & Hyde effect.  His choice is certain death or live as a monster (of sorts).

I liked the trailer for a few reasons.  I always prefer when a trailer gives away very little with interesting visuals and makes me curious enough to seek answers.  Yeah, I'm odd that way.

Cool teaser trailer.  I'll see this film.
