These Twin Girls’ Horror Movie Transformations Prove Nightmares Are Real
Evil children have been a staple in the horror genre forever. From The Bad Seed to The Exorcist to Orphan, using children as the antagonists seems to heighten a film’s creepy factor—because you can’t help but think, “That could always be my kid.”
The LA-based production company 22 Vision decided to use the horror trope of scary kids to create a fun Halloween photo shoot starring five-year-old twins Baylie and Rylie Cregut, best known for sharing the role of Hope on the TV series Raising Hope. The girls were transformed into characters from seven different popular horror movies, including The Ring, The Shining, and Bride of Chucky.
Brian Pocrass, owner of 22 Vision and the executive producer for this #KidsOfHorror project, told MTV News how this photo shoot came to be. “One weekend day in June, my 4-year-old niece had a birthday princess party where everybody came in costume. One girl in particular came in with long dark hair and I joked to a friend that she kinda looked like Samara from ’The Ring.’ My friend told me to stop because that movie scared him to no end and he [didn’t] want to think about it.”
After that spark of inspiration, the #KidsOfHorror project came alive. Pocrass mentioned, “The girls were fascinated with the whole transformation process—the costumes, hair and makeup. It was like the ultimate game of dress up for them… [they] were [even] actively trying to out-scare each other [during the shoot]!”
