Other than the fancy setting (India), The Other Side of the Door has little going for it. A pale imitation of Pet Semetary with every horror trope thrown in for good measure, there is just not a lot going on. I will say that at least the horror baddie Myrtu has a decent design. But ultimately it's entirely forgettable.

I have a hard time finding much to write about 'The Other Side of the Door'. What can I say about a film which is nothing more than a constant assault of every single horror movie cliche that's ever been brought to the screen? That is exactly what you get for the entire 90 minutes of this poorly executed stinker. Not a single original thought went into the making of this crap. It's aggravatingly dumb to the point where I actually got tired of laughing at it's complete incompetence and sat there with loathing contempt, hoping it would end sooner. It's the same old watered down, recycled imitation brought to us through careless execution and a careless attitude towards the audience.

I came across a porno spoof of this called "The Other Side of the Whore". I highly recommend it. It's good stuff. The Other Side of the Door is one of those horror movies that we get every year that's normally terrible or just not that good. It came no surprise to me that this movie wasn't good, because honestly who expected this to be good? probably someone out there. The acting was flat, it wasn't scary or effective at all and the kid actors freaking suck, I mean I've seen better kid actors in better movies then this.

"What if I could bring your son back to you just one more time? What if I could give you the chance to say your final goodbye?"
"The other side of the door" is not really a bad movie. Technically speaking it really looks magnificent at certain moments. Moreover, India as location and the used ancient ritual sure made for a unique starting point. But ultimately it was only a collection of all sorts of previously used ideas. I thought it felt a bit outdated. That wouldn't be such a huge problem if there was a certain tension or creepiness. Unfortunately, this was also missing, making it once again a horror that never exceeded mediocrity.
The story reminded me of "Pet Semetary" with the loss of a child and the desire to bring it back to life again. In "The Other Side of the door" …
