OTHER: A Little Bit of Cronenberg-esque in Chicago?

OTHER: A Little Bit of Cronenberg-esque in Chicago?

I’m gonna tell you that this short trailer for this short film definitely has me hooked.  Don’t blink or you’ll miss just how crystal cool this one is. We’ll let you know when we’ve perused the short and can offer a more informed opinion. All they’d need is another 14 minutes and 29 seconds of bad ass and they’ll have a winner in my book. I assure you this is not The Other from 1972 so take you psychological horror and introduce it to what might be a Cronenberg-esque adventure into the body.

The trailer for “OTHER” is now live on the film’s official website.


“OTHER” is a 15 minute short sci-fi/horror film from Daniel DelPurgatorio, director of Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter. It was produced by Vitamin in Chicago, IL.

Patrick is a brilliant doctor, in an obsessive race to alter his own grim prognosis. During a series of unconventional experiments, he discovers a scientific loophole unlike anything he had ever imagined. In pursuit of this dark prize, Patrick will risk everything to ensure he sees his experiment to the end…even if it means accepting the sinister results.

“OTHER” will be having it’s world premiere on Thursday, December 15, 2011 at The Den Theatre in Chicago, IL. The free screening will be open to the public on a first come, first serve basis. The event will be held at 7:00pm and will feature the entire cast and crew of the film.

Dr. Jimmy Terror, more commonly known as James P. Harris, has been “writing your eyes” shut since 2010 with his horror themed blog Dr. Terror’s Blog of Horrors (whose name is a play on words derived from the Amicus film, Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors). In the early 2000’s he fronted the band The Vaudeville Vampires, a short-lived Horrorabilly band which saw the creation of a catalog of horror related songs before disbanding (with only one, six song demo ever being produced and distributed). He has had only one on screen appearance to date in the horror/suspense short, Ocean Parkway, as maniacal, gloved killer with a hair fetish. Having done some un-credited, behind the scenes work in some low budget genre pictures, he is currently working on his first foray into screenwriting with a demonic, retro gore entry that pays homage to Lucio Fulci, Dario Argento as well as other Italian masters of the genre.
