Times two

What is it about twins that spooks people?

I’m sure you remember the two little girls who haunted the hallways of Stephen King’s classic movie thriller, The Shining.  Whenever they appeared, the music changed and bloodshed was sure to follow.

Or I think it did.  I always watched that part between my fingers.

Not to be outdone, the new FX series American Horror Story introduces its ‘twins of terror’ in the very first show’s very first scene.

Ginger-headed, the two boys insult a young girl with Down’s Syndrome and then immediately destroy an old, decaying mansion, baseball bats swinging!  Clearly they’re not nice people, and are most likely headed for a life of crime…if they live that long, that is.

But hey – it’s a horror series.  Even if the terror twins die, we probably haven’t seen the last of ’em.

Jesus, woman — turn around!

They’re right behind you.
