The Twin marks the English-language debut of director Taneli Mustonen, who also wrote the screenplay with Aleksi Hyvärinen. Here’s the synopsis:

Following the aftermath of a tragic accident that claimed the life of one of their twins, Rachel and husband Anthony relocate to the other side of the world with their surviving son in the hopes of building a new life. 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.

Palmer is joined in the cast by Steven Cree, who has also worked with her on the TV series A Discovery of Witches.

The Twin was produced by Don Films’ Aleksi Hyvärinen. Joris van Wijk, Shudder’s Emily Gotto, Film Constellation’s Fabien Westerhoff, and Post Control Helsinki’s Toni Valla serve as executive producers. The film is backed by Shudder, Playtime, Nordisk Film, the Finnish Film Foundation, Estonian Film Institute, and the Finnish television channel MTV3.

Mustonen’s previous credits include the 2016 horror film Lake Bodom.
