Terrifying Real Life Reenactment Of The Shining’s Grady Twins


Poppy and Isabella are two twin daughters of an English dad with a creepy sense of humor. Adorable as they may be, that only lasts until their dad dresses them up to recreate the famous Grady twins from The Shining. Honestly, when in character, the twins are downright terrifying.

The father, Martin Hughes, is big on social media website Twitter (@wefail) and posts his adventures with his daughter via tweets. He is said to have taught his twin daughters to reenact the scene and they do so perfectly well. He even stated that he “jokingly taught them ‘come and play with us’ not long ago…”

Hughes shared that “Someone actually argued that demons are real and it’d legally be my fault if the girls were hurt when someone thought they were actual ghosts.”

Thankfully, the majority of people got the gist of the prank. By the looks of it, Halloween will be a lot of fun later down the line.
