With that title I am referring to Alex and Oli Santoro, the two brothers who made this film. They have worked a lot in other areas, but for both it was the first time they wrote and directed a movie. And taking that into account, this was a pretty impressive film. It is a mix of horror, mystery and drama with the horror component certainly being the most crucial. Pretty much everything here works out. The acting is good, it is a very atmospheric watch and the contrast between the setting early on and in the end (also the weather) couldn't be any more different. The monster is really creepy and I would also watch a full feature with it. The nanny background brings a nice touch of innocence here. The only thing I really wasn't 100% fond of is the plot twist at the end. It was not too surprising, but still I somehow did not like it entirely. It certainly wasn't bad enough though to destroy everything good from before. I recommend "The Other Side" and I hope the Santoro Brothers will return to filmmaking at some point. I certainly see some nice talent here and it sucks to see that this one is already 4 years old now and they still haven't made another movie. Anyway, go watch "The Other Side". You will not be disappointed.
