Critics Consensus: Laden with flimsy jump scares and cheap stereotypes, The Other Side of the Door wastes solid work from Sarah Wayne Callies on thoroughly middling horror fare.

Emotionally resonant horror tale has children in peril.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Other Side of the Door is a horror movie about a mother (The Walking Dead's Sarah Wayne Callies) who tries to communicate with her dead son and accidentally brings back his malevolent ghost. Language, drinking, and smoking aren't issues, but there's plenty of scariness and violence, including a couple of bloody stabbings. Perhaps even more disturbing is the death of a young boy while trapped in a sinking car; his mother can't save both him and his sister. There are also plenty of ghosts and creatures, jump-scares, and other spooky, creepy, or startling moments. Plus, a woman takes a pill overdose, a dog is potentially harmed (off screen), and a married couple has a very mild kissing, possibly-leading-to-sex scene.
