What is really interesting about this film, apart from the fact it has canon incest, is that it was written and directed by Anna Paquin’s brother Andrew Paquin. Anna and her husband Stephen Moyer only have small cameo roles but obviously they did the film to help out her brother, which is nice. I liked how the movie was set up so that the viewer isn’t suppose to know that the brother and sister (David and Lila) are in fact siblings. There is just subtle hints throughout the movie, and then an obvious allude to it when Lila is talking about David’s children’s book he wrote and how the brother and sister are not being allowed to fall in love with each other, and that they are twins. So the two sibling characters in the movie are not only brother and sister, but twins. I liked how the movie did sort of a role reversal and had the sister calling the shots and being the dominant one, but at the same time the brother was so weak and just seemed so unstable it made it less fun and interesting. It is another example of this sort of toxic codependent relationship between psychotic incestuous siblings that a lot of films that are canon have, but still worth a watch.
A werewolf terrorizes a small city where lives Marty Coslaw, – a paralytic boy – his uncle and his sister – the narrator of the story.
Turistas – released as Paradise Lost in the UK and Ireland – is an American horror film about what happens when a group of young backpackers’ vacation turns sour in a Brazilian rural area.
Turistas was marketed as a Hostel type of movie, and did rather poorly during it’s limited release in 2006. I heard Brazil also tried and stop the movie’s release do to the picture being bad for the country’s tourism. I thought it was a gem of a movie and is even better than Hostel because it didn’t rely on gore or torture, and had more likeable characters… And a hot brother and sister doesn’t hurt.
Turistas is about a group of friends heading to Brazil for a summer get away. They include Alex (Josh Duhamel), handsome American take-charge dude, his little sister, Bea (Olivia Wilde) and her friend Amy. They soon meet other vacationers on their journey including London brothers Liam and Finn, and an Australian by the name of Pru.
Of course the most important characters are the brother and sister duo of Alex and Bea. We soon find out that Alex is present to chaperone his sister, which he is doing by pretending to be her boyfriend. MMM-hmm. Oh yeah.
“There’s something about you, something very…familiar.”
The members of a severely dysfunctional family get together at a snow-covered, isolated mansion in the winter. There the family members – including the father, an arrogant surgeon who may have murdered his wealthy wife – expose each others’ secrets, with surprising results.
Like my clever title? Well it was actually used for a special sibling preview of Oculus – ”Dare your brother or sister to join you for a special siblings preview of Oculus.” So you know judging from that this film is going to be pretty sibling orientated!
Are you afraid of the dark?
Darkness (2002) and Oculus (2014) are two films that both deal with dark and mysterious forces in a house. In both films the sisters are trying to “save” their brothers, the sisters are also older and strong-willed.
In Oculus, a brother and sister (Kaylie and Tim) attempt to destroy the spirit-possessed mirror that killed their parents. Kaylie tries to exonerate her brother Tim, who was convicted of the murder, by proving that the crime was committed by this supernatural phenomenon. Spooky…Better be-careful what you pic up at that next garage sale!
I (or should I say eye? LOL) really liked the movie, especially because it shows the siblings growing up, and by that I mean being absolutely terrified in their house, and then in their adult years trying to seek revenge for their messed up childhood! The end will shock you though!
In Darkness, a teenage girl (Regina played by Anna Paquin) moves into a remote countryside house with her family, only to discover that their gloomy new home has a horrifying past that threatens to destroy the family, especially her little brother. I didn’t care for this film as much, as it just seemed to have so many plot holes, but the brother and sister relationship was very cute and protective.
The House of Wax literally starts melting as soon as twins siblings (Carly and Nick) enter it.
The plot is as follows. Six young folks get stranded near a strange wax museum in Ambrose on their way to a football game, and in the midst of their own melodramas, they must fight to survive and keep from becoming the next exhibit!
Paris Hilton is Paige, who is keeping a secret from her boyfriend, Blake (Robert Ri’chard). The fact that Paris Hilton was cast actually makes perfect sense for the film, and it is also neat and scary that she really does have a wax statue in real life, lol! Elisha Cuthbert is Carly, the subject of a three-way rivalry among her dreamboat boyfriend, Wade (Jared Padalecki from Supernatural); a dispensable doofus in a baseball cap named Dalton (Jon Abrahams); and her twin brother, Nick (Chad Michael Murray), who has just finished a spell in jail for auto theft.
Carly and Nick’s contrasting temperaments – he sardonically refers to himself as “the evil twin” – mirror the sibling dynamic of the killers, providing House of Wax with hints of a psychological, sexual and incestuous subtext. Continue reading

Even if it does happen while someone may or may not be possessed. You know how it is in horror movies. Check out the clip here.
Silent House (2011) is yet another example where you watch a movie thinking it will just be (in this case) a scary ghost story and find out it actually contains…incest.
Seriously, am I attracting these to myself, or is it like I have foretold; that it seems to always be a hidden little needle in a haystack of films and tv now.
Trapped inside her family’s lakeside retreat, a young woman finds she is unable to contact the outside world as events become increasingly ominous in and around the house.
I have been wanting to watch this film for a long time and finally got to it the other day. I thought it was just going to be ghost story type film or something like Paranormal Activity (which I am glad it wasn’t because I hate those films!) but it turned out to be something very unexpected!
