THE TWIN (2017) Reviews and overview


‘Identical face, killer difference.’

The Twin – aka The Good Twin – is a 2017 American horror thriller film directed by Max Derin and producer Fred Olen Ray (Venomous; Scalps; Evil Toons; Deep Space) from a screenplay by Derin, Roger Stigliano and Michael Waite. It stars Brigid Brannagh, Timothy Granaderos and Louis Mandylor.

A woman (Brigid Brannagh) springs into action after discovering that the twin brother (Timothy Granaderos) of her daughter’s boyfriend escapes from a mental institution and hatches a twisted plan for revenge…


The Twin is a lot of fun and it’s certainly not a film that’s meant to be taken seriously.  This is not a serious look at mental illness, young love, sibling rivalry, or anything else for that matter.  This is an over-the-top and rather silly piece of pure entertainment and, if we can’t enjoy something like that, what hope is there for the world?” Lisa Marie Bowman, Through the Shattered Lens

“This movie is 1 hour of slow build, 30 minutes of “finally” moments, and 30 minutes of excitement. […] They did provide a nice stand-in for the twin, but the dual scenes could use a little more work. Timothy’s performance of both Tyler and Derrick was done very well. He made sure each twin had a different personality and mannerism.” T Gray, The Best Darn Girls Movie Review

Main cast:

Brigid Brannagh, Timothy Granaderos, Louis Mandylor, Calista Carradine, Mark Lindsay Chapman, Tracy Brooks Swope, David Novak, CeCe Taylor, Mashari Laila Bain.
