The Scariest Horror Movies With Twins

Updated December 18, 2020 951 votes 261 voters 28.1k views42 items

There's something inherently creepy about two human beings who look exactly the same, which is why we've created this list of the best horror movies with twins. These aren't necessarily horror movies about twins, but they're all scary movies that feature twins at some point during the film. Obviously the Grady sisters from The Shining are the most iconic horror twins of all time, but there are actually a lot of scary movies that have twins in them outside of that.

Vote up the scariest movies with twins, whether it's Dead Ringers, Twins of Evil, Basket Case, or anything in-between.
