TFH Fan Week with Steve Senski! continues at Trailers from Hell, today with Kickstarter backer Senski introducing Robert Mulligan's 1972 horror film of good-seed and bad-seed twins, "The Other."

This creepy, bucolic period horror film didn’t make much of an impression theatrically, but was rediscovered through late-night television airings. Although former actor turned best-selling author Tom Tryon wrote the screenplay from his own novel, he professed to be disappointed with To Kill a Mockingbird director Robert Mulligan’s nostalgia-laced, Ray Bradburyish handling of it. Composer Jerry Goldsmith’s music score was heavily edited in the release version.
