Trivia

The dot Piki wears in the middle of her forehead is a religious symbol worn by Hindus. As well as being a beauty spot, it also represents the third eye of spiritual sight capable of seeing things the physical eye does not see. See more »

Goofs

When Maria reads from "The Jungle Book," she opens the book to a point about half way through. However, the story she reads aloud is the first one, "Mowgli's Brothers," so the book should have been opened to a much earlier spot. See more »

The Other Side of the Door is decent horror which not only has great plot but also has decent execution which does not disappoint.
23 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

The Other Side of the Door (2016) : I expected a lot from 2016 horror movies because all of those trailers looked spooky and promising but when it comes for movie it is disappointing.Except The Conjuring 2,the others like The Boy,Forest etc..disappointed me.But I will agree that though they fail to impress,they have interesting plots.The Other Side of the Door also has interesting plot and even its trailer looked promising.How is it??

Plot: Michael (Jeremy Sisto) and Maria (Sarah Wayne Callies) are Americans who settled in Mumbai.Their happy life gets upside down when their son Oliver dies in a tragic incident.Maria learns of a secret temple in a village where she can contact with her dead son through a door which connects to the other world.But she was warned that she should not open that door at any cost.But she disobeys it and opens the door which upsets the balance between life and death.What happens to Maria and her family???

Plus Points: 1)Plot: Plot of The Other Side of the Door is interesting one.An American horror set in India and based on Indian rituals is truly a step for good plot.

2)Performances: Performances are decent and Sarah Wayne definitely shines among them. She gave good performance as grief stricken mother who wants to bring her dead son back.

3)Make Up: Make up work is awesome.The use of Aghoras and Indian religious characters like Mruthyu is good attempt.Even ghosts are done naturally by makeup without using any CGI which is needed to be appreciated.

4)Climax: Movie's climax is good and twisty.

Minus Points: 1)Limited Scary scenes: Out of all those scary scenes only the scene at temple succeeds.Other are clichéd and not that scary.

So The Other Side of the Door is decent horror which not only has great plot but also has decent execution which does not disappoint.

My rating 6.75/10
