THE TWIN, starring Teresa Palmer and Steven Cree, will be released on May 6th.

The trailer and debut date for the original film The Twin were unveiled today by Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thrillers, and the supernatural. The highly anticipated Scandinavian horror film from Shudder and RLJE Films, starring Teresa Palmer (A Discovery of Witches, Warm Bodies, Lights Out) and Steven Cree (A Discovery of Witches, Outlander), will have a day-and-date release on Friday, May 6, premiering on Shudder platforms in the US, Canada, UKI, and ANZ, as well as in theatres, On Demand, and Digital in the US and Canada.

Following the death of one of their twins in a tragic accident, Rachel (Palmer) and her husband Anthony (Cree) migrate to the other side of the world with their surviving kid in the hopes of starting a new life. When Rachel begins to unravel the excruciating reality about her son and confronts the malevolent forces aiming to take hold of him, what begins as a time of healing in the tranquil Scandinavian countryside quickly takes an ominous turn.

Taneli Mustonen’s English-language debut, Frontières Platform, was screened at Fantasia and Cannes’ Marché du Film, and won the best fiction prize at industry showcase Finnish Film Affair last year, as well as the best project award at the BIFAN development forum in Korea.
