This week we’ve come over all sci-fi, first White Space and now this exciting new short. Running at just 15 minutes Other, directed by Daniel DelPurgatorio, centres on doctor Patrick (David Steiger) who has become obsessed with trying to ‘alter his own grim prognosis’ through a series of strange and bizarre experiments. It is whilst he is carry out his unconventional research that he discovers a scientific loophole and now he runs the risk of losing everything to ensure that he sees this tests through to the very end.
Selected for screening at almost 50 film festivals and winning 15 awards last year including ‘Best Short Film’ at United Film Festival Chicago and Celluloid Screams: Sheffield Horror Festival. It also received note for its fantastic special effects and score. If the trailer is anything to go by, this is one short that will shock and disturb you. We’re already feeling a little tense.
I have a feeling fans of Familiar (also a short film) and body horror will also be keen on this. It really does seem that we have been spoilt for choice with exciting and original short films recently!
