  • Some secrets are so evil you need to bury them twice… Every parent’s worst nightmare is just the beginning for Rachel’s ordeal as in the aftermath of a tragic accident, she and her husband Anthony decide to move to the other side of the world to focus on their surviving twin son Elliot. What begins as a time of healing and isolation in the Scandinavian countryside turns into a desperate battle for the very soul of their son as an entity claiming to be his dead twin brother takes over Elliot – setting Rachel on a diabolical journey to unravel the horrible truth about her twin son.

    Director’s Statement: The Twin draws from the great horror classics we all love – and while committed to entertain (and frankly scare the heck out of you), we also want to make it intense, elegant and honest. Raw but relatable. At its core, it’s a story about how living in denial can ultimately crush you. How protecting your loved ones can end up hurting them the most. The most destructive prison is the one you build around yourself – and yet, inside it, you can still be happy. If that isn’t pure horror, I don’t know what is.
