Synopsis by Mark Deming
A young man returns from a brush with death to discover some very powerful forces don't want him to survive in this independent horror film from writer and director Gregg Bishop. Sam North (Nathan Mobley) is a college student who is home on break and looking forward to seeing his girlfriend Hanna (Jaimie Alexander). When Hannah mysteriously disappears, Sam sets out to find her, but his search is cut short when he's run down by a van. After dreaming he's trapped in the pits of Hell, Sam awakes from the accident in a hospital, but he soon learns he wasn't dreaming. Sam died, but escaped from Hades with the help of Oz (Poncho Hodges) and Mally (Cory Rouse), supernatural beings with a history of helping those who have become trapped in Satan's lair. However, the Devil isn't about to give up a soul without a fight, and soon three "Reapers" -- Satan's musclemen, who round up escapees from the pit -- come after Sam, determined to bring him back to the Lake of Fire. The Other Side received its world premiere at the 2006 Slamdance Film Festival.
