A perfect prank that would creep anyone out.
Twins are born to surprise everyone, including their mother. Although the expecting family does know how many, or what gender the babies will have, it still feels like a happy 2-in-1 surprise.
The odds of having identical twins are 1 in 250, while chances of having non-identical twins are more common due to some factors. It’s a very fun environment in a house with identical twins if you think about it. When twins realize their unique superpower of looking exactly like each other, they can easily get a lot of things done. For example, one could easily attend a class for another, they can simply annoy their parents because it gets hard to recognize who is who. Honestly, if I have twins, I’m gonna put them to great use.
One person shares my exact vision. and his name is Martin Hughes. This England-based dad has identical twin daughters Poppy and Isabella. The two sisters have successfully mastered being the famous horror children from The Shining all thanks to their dad’s vision and efforts.
The main inspiration for their dad was to recreate the Grady twins from Stanley Kubrick’s horror movie from 1908. And he did so by teaching them to stand together, super still, holding hands in a very specific way. A sight that would freak anyone out.

Meet the eerie sisters! It’s as if they were born to do this.
Martin has a really good sense of humor. I mean, who would’ve thought about this? Sure, the sight must be terrifying for anyone who’d walk down that hallway. but the fun element of it makes it so much worthwhile, for us at least. Can’t say anything about those getting pranked!
“As soon as we found out we were having identical twins I thought The Shining.”, told Martin to the Buzz Feed News upon being asked about the crazy idea.
I don’t think the kids have got a clue about who the Grady twins were from The Shining either. But the way they pull it off is so astonishing and inch-perfect. Martin taught the whole routine to his girls while they were staying at a London hotel.
“[I] jokingly taught them ‘come and play with us’ not long ago.”
Martin is an active Twitter user and he did post all about this story on his account. Those who were familiar with the historical Grady twins and The Shining gave such great reactions and were shocked as to how perfectly the twins pulled it off.
Perhaps, they are the real Grady twins.
Martin’s prank went viral on the internet and the responses he received are super fun to read.
One user responded that they’ve been right at it as well.
When we say the twins really did pull it off, we mean it. The hotel guests, staff, or anyone who’d walk that hallway was bound to get scared given how accurately they were standing there, so still and holding hands. And to take things to the next level, Martin taught them to say ‘come play with us’ as well. He is so sneaky.
Here’s a side-by-side comparison.
But one major thing that is to be kept in mind is that the intention behind all this was to have a laugh. Martin said he wanted to make the twin life worthwhile. Would be something for the girls to remember when they grow up.
And when you see the cute twin sisters out of the character, your heart would melt instantly. They are a lovely family.
Always got a gimmick for every situation.
I would love to meet these twin sisters in person and do the whole come play with us thing with them. I know it is a bad idea, but it’s so tempting. And of course, I’d love to meet Martin Hughes, the mastermind behind the trickery. We loved it. When you’re that good a parent, you deserve to pull off pranks like this.
