Writer/Director Gregg Bishop is someone on the rise and destined for greater things but in the meantime his first film out of film school, "The Other Side" not only shows just how good a movie can be made on a small budget but also just how good a Director Bishop is already. Maybe not 100% original but his take on the genre is as fresh a film as you are going to see. "Award-winning writer and director Gregg Bishop delivers an impressive feature-length debut" (Sci Fi Dimensions) with THE OTHER SIDE, a fast-paced supernatural action-thriller. On the night Samuel North (Nathan Mobley) is to reunite with the girl he loves: Hanna Thompson (Jaimie Alexander), he is mysteriously murdered and sent to Hell. Inside "the Pit", two other damned souls on the run help Samuel escape back to the world of the living. Now there's Hell to pay: the Netherworld has sent three invincible bounty hunters called REAPERS to hunt down and retrieve each of the escaped men. Setting out to uncover the mystery of his death and Hanna's disappearance, Samuel finds unlikely allies in his gun-toting fellow escapees Mally (Cory Rouse) and Oz (Poncho Hodges)-- who hope that by helping Samuel find Hanna, they can redeem themselves and be free of the Pit forever. The acting over-all is good considering the genre and the reported budget of $15,000, it may be a bit uneven at times but the cast does a good enough job to help carry the film along. The film itself has some great twists and turns that keep you glued to your seat as well as some fantastic action scenes mixed together with some good drama and some funny scenes put in to lighten the mood from the time to time and what you get here is a Independent masterpiece. This is not a film to scare you by, there's a scene in the beginning that made me jump but after that it's just a roller coaster ride of high octane spills and thrills. Hollywood needs to notice this great young Director and get him a film deal with a budget that he can really show off his talent with. If "The Other Side" plays in your area see it on the big screen and own it today on DVD, you will not be disappointed. The DVD is nicely packaged and comes with the bonus features:
