Recently I had heard about an interesting new short film about a doctor's self-diagnosis and unorthodox treatment methods gone horribly awry entitled Other. Well now I have some info for you and I'm here to bring you the official trailer for the film, and it just adds to the intrigue.
Other is directed by Daniel DelPurgatorio, best known for helming Tales of the Black Freighter, the companion piece for 2009's Watchmen, which featured the voice-over work of Gerard Butler. However, with Other, DelPurgatorio takes a entirely new direction. Watching the trailer, I felt a strong essence of Jeff Goldblum in The Fly. Take a gander at the trailer below and see if it channels Brundlefly for you, too.
And for those of you in the Chicago area, you've got the jump on everyone. Other will be having its world premiere in Chicago on Thursday, December 15, at 7 pm at The Den Theater. The screening is free and will be open to the public, first-come/first-served. The entire cast and crew of the film will be on hand. The film was written by DelPurgatorio and Rob Foster and stars David Steiger. Anthony Williams developed the screenplay.
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.
