A Tale of Two Sisters is an evil stepmother fairy tale with blood and ghosts, and watching it made me wish I had more ghost stories and fewer slasher stories in this countdown. Come to think if it, I needed more witches and goblins as well!
There are some really creepy moments in Two Sisters, but I have to say I saw its twist coming almost immediately. It was made in 2003, and a lot of films both before and after it have used the same twist. But really, there are only so many types of twists a horror movie can utilize, and a "twist" is baked into so much of the horror genre, that I'm not faulting the movie for it. I'm just warning anyone who has watched a lot of horror movies that they may need to be satisfied with what the rest of A Tale of Two Sisters has to offer.
Moments like this.
You know what? This countdown also needed more movies with table clearing and flipping!
A Tale of Two Sisters is currently streaming on Shudder and the Criterion Channel.
