This The Other Side of the Door Clip is Very Creepy

Director Johannes Roberts' The Other Side of the Door teases out two oft-used conceits in horror films; 1) people always disobey grave warnings, no matter how dire the promised consequences are, and 2) a mother will do anything, anything for her child. In this case, the mother (Sarah Wayne Callies) will do anything to bring her son (Jax Malcolm) back to life, which includes using an ancient ritual and disregarding a warning about the portal between life and death. Of all the warnings one might disregard, the warning about the portal between life and death seems like one you might want to heed. 

This below clip, titled "Who's That Man," offers a nice little scare in just under a minute. If the rest of the film is this spooky, The Other Side of the Door could be a surprise late winter hit. It creeps into theaters on March 4.
