Shudder’s Psychological Shocker ‘THE TWIN’ Gets Release Date & Trailer

Shudder has today revealed the trailer and premiere date for the psychological horror film The Twin, the English-language debut feature from Finnish filmmaker Taneli Mustonen.

This Scandinavian film took part in Frontières Platform, the genre-focused event run by Fantasia and Cannes’ Marché du Film, and won the best fiction award at industry showcase Finnish Film Affair last year, as well as best project at the BIFAN development forum in Korea.

Written by Mustonen and Aleksi Hyvärinen, and starring Teresa Palmer (A Discovery of Witches, Warm Bodies, Lights Out) and Steven Cree (A Discovery of Witches, Outlander), The Twin sees Rachel (Palmer) and husband Anthony (Cree) relocate to the other side of the world with their surviving son following the aftermath of a tragic accident that claimed the life of one of their twins. But, what begins as a time of healing in the quiet Scandinavian countryside soon takes an ominous turn when Rachel begins to unravel the torturous truth about her son and confronts the malicious forces attempting to take a hold of him.

The hotly anticipated film, following the runaway success of Mustonen’s previous horror project, Lake Bodom, will debut on Friday, May 6th on Shudder platforms in the US, Canada, UKI and ANZ, as well as in theaters, On Demand and Digital in the US and Canada.  But, in the meantime, we’ll leave you with the first taste of what’s in store with the aforementioned trailer.
