Complex says: Looks like someone’s read Thomas Tryon’s great 1971 novel The Other, or at least seen its so-so ’72 film adaptation. In Tryon’s text, one little twin tried stopping his evil other half from raising hell, so the fact that both kids in Seconds Apart are wicked is somewhat original. Without any footage to peep, however, it’s hard to get too excited about yet another creepy kid movie. If this one sucks, fans of Mad TV should at least get a chuckle or two from seeing Orlando “7 Up” Jones play a leading man.
