Crazy Doctors & Strange Medicine in “Other”

You know I love zombies … I really do. But there’s something about a mad doctor that I just love. From Dr. Herbert West to Dr. Frankenstein to Dr. Peyton Westlake; nothing quite beats watching a brilliant man with a warped mind twist nature into his own creation. That’s why when I came across OTHER, a short film by Daniel DelPurgatorio, it immediately caught my attention. OTHER is still in post-production (it just completed principle photography in August, 2011) but already has a handful of screening dates set up. First, here’s the plot synopsis:

Patrick is a brilliant doctor in an obsessive race to alter his own grim prognosis. During a series of unconventional experiments, he discovers a scientific loophole unlike anything he had ever imagined. In pursuit of this dark prize, Patrick will risk everything to ensure he sees his experiment to the end…even if it means accepting the sinister results.

Sounds mysterious and has the potential to be pretty fucked up!! Daniel DelPurgatorio (who also wrote the story with Rob Foster) directed the short animated film, TALES OF THE BLACK FREIGHTER, which is the comic book found within the WATCHMEN graphic novel. I’m eager to check this one out now. here’s a few screening dates:
