TFH Fan Week with Steve Senski! continues at Trailers from Hell, today with Kickstarter backer Senski introducing Robert Mulligan’s 1972 horror film of good-seed and bad-seed twins, “The Other.”
This creepy, bucolic period horror film didn’t make much of
an impression theatrically, but was rediscovered through late-night television
airings. Although former actor turned best-selling author Tom Tryon wrote the
screenplay from his own novel, he professed to be disappointed with To Kill a
Mockingbird director Robert Mulligan’s nostalgia-laced, Ray Bradburyish
handling of it. Composer Jerry Goldsmith’s music score was heavily edited in
the release version.
