As the movie opens, a mysterious figure wearing a black robe holds aloft a baby. 18 years later, Jordyn Ames is celebrating her birthday when strange and gruesome things start to happen. She learns that she is a descendent of a long line of witches, and she may have a dark twin who is performing horrific acts. As Jordyn, Paulie Rojas seems delicate and fragile when the movie opens, but as the demon within (or maybe it’s her twin) starts taking over, she takes command of the screen. Director Jason Bognacki perfectly captures the nightmarish feel of Italian giallo films, where the main character can’t tell the difference between nightmare and reality, and the audience is right there with her. The movie looks and sounds so good that you’d never know it was pieced together with a small crew and a slim budget. With confident direction, unsettling music stings, and a subjective storyline that never lets you out of its dream logic, Another builds up a creepy feeling that compounds all the way through its demonic tale.
