If you’re ready to snuggle up this Halloween and watch a great horror flick, look no further than Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen’s “Double Trouble.” I am not kidding or exaggerating, this movie is truly terrifying. (I say this having seen many a terrifying film.) “Psycho” has nothing on this. Eek. Already have the chills/getting nervous. It’s so interesting which movies/books from my youth, like really really early youth, I AM STILL YOUNG, stay with me.
“Double Trouble” zeroes in on two generations of twins. It takes place on Halloween, and somebody’s trapped in a mirror. That’s the plot. Simple, easy, doesn’t sound too bad. However, it is terrifying. Like, look over your shoulder, sprint up the stairs in to your lit room, terrifying.
Here’s what I find particularly scary about it:
- The score.
- This super scary scene I don’t want to give away but it involves a cackle I still hear in my nightmares…
- The term, ‘coven.’
- Weird flashbacks.
- Grave diggers.
- Victorian-era outfits.
- Fun houses. (What a dumb term.)
- Living “where the sun always shines.”
- The idea that little girls could turn into evil adults.
That’s all I’ll say for now. Watch it, if you dare. MUWAHAH! But really. I’m not watching this, so it’s fine if you don’t because it’s that scary. Just watch “Passport to Paris” if you want your Olsen family fix.
