What lies on The Other Side of the Door, you ask? Want a sneak peek?
Hitting theaters on March 4th (that’s THIS FRIDAY!), the Johannes Roberts-directed film The Other Side of the Door takes us on a horrifying journey to India, telling the story of a woman who refuses to let go of her young son after losing him in an accident. Overcome with grief, the woman takes part in an ancient Hindu ritual that quite literally brings her child back from the dead.
If you can’t wait until this weekend to come face to face with the Aghori, the four-armed creature known as Myrtu, or the various nightmares that await beyond the door, we’ve got you covered tonight. A 60-second animated video just arrived at the iHorror offices, and it gives us a taste of what we can expect on March 4th. Do you dare open the door? Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

The Other Side of the Door stars Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead) and Jeremy Sisto.
In the film…
A family living overseas in Mumbai, India, are struck by tragedy when their 8-year-old son, Oliver, is killed in a car accident, for which his mother, Maria, feels directly responsible.
Maria falls into a deep depression, unable to function around her husband or 6-year-old daughter, who survived the crash. But her housekeeper tells her about a Hindu ritual that will allow her to speak to her son one last time. She’s instructed to head to an abandoned temple, sprinkle her son’s ashes, and when he appears at night, speak to him from the other side of the temple portal.
It soon becomes clear that Maria is haunted by her son and other spirits angered by the sacrilege of the open door.
