    Tough call. The Other is fantastic and truly creepy, but I had to go with Sisters, which I consider Brian DePalma's best film. Both are classics.

    THE OTHER is yet another one I have not seen and is not available on DVD yet. :(

    But it would have to be something really special for me to vote against SISTERS. Bernard Herrmann's score is a true stand-out for me, partially because I was already familiar with it thanks to My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult.

    The Other is really good, but I love Sisters, one of DePalma's most underrated among the general public IMO. One of his best films.

    Loved THE OTHER, but SISTERS is De Palma. Got to go with De Man.

    Honestly, I've never seen The Other. Honestly, I'm not caring much because I love Sisters.

    Sisters.

    I hope I'm not the only person here that just hated The Other. Something about its ugly, Little House on the Prairie meets Valerie and Her Week of Wonders atmosphere made me nauseous from minute 1. I'm surprised my stomach didn't turn. Plus they never explained anything, so they didn't allow you to feel anything.

    Of course, I haven't seen it in over 10 years. But... it was a very vivid first watch. And a vividly unfun, uncomfortable, yucky one.

    "Sisters" has an amazing opening and that dream sequence, but that's about it for me. Whenever the film went away from Margot Kidder I just got bored

    "The Others" however has some of the best American Gothic atmosphere I've seen and such a unique tone that it is easily one of my favorite films. For the other "Other" fan here - check out Nick Cave's "The Ass Saw the Angel". It borrows a lot of imagery from this one.

    The Other is such a creepy movie. It got under my skin when I first saw it as a kid and it still does. With Sisters, I find myself measuring what works against what doesn't. Lisle Wilson was a hottie, though.
