This Day in Horror Historical past: OTIS Was Launched in 2008
From time to time, people ask me to suggest and superior, underrated horror film. The most effective horror comedies aficionados haven’t seen is Otis, directed by Tony Krantz from a screenplay penned by Erik Jendresen and Thomas Schnauz. Bostin Christopher performs the title character, Otis Broth, a man-child trying to have the right promenade with the lady of his goals. Since its a horror film, that is something however a candy coming of age story!
Ashley Johnson performs Riley, the article of Otis’s affections–and she or he’s something however your stereotypical sufferer. The movie is additional propelled by superior performances by Daniel Stern, Illeana Douglas, and Kevin Pollak. In case you’ve by no means seen Otis, or it’s been some time, try the trailer embedded on the prime of the article and peep the synopsis beneath.
A person (Daniel Stern) and his spouse (Illeana Douglas) search revenge after their daughter (Ashley Johnson) escapes from the clutches of a serial killer.
Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs seems in a single shot as an orderly within the hospital. He’s carrying the very same costume his character, Mandingo, wore in Chic (2007), the place he was a satanic orderly. (Supply)
