Most of these films have been as advertised, but no one has a hundred percent success rate. Seconds Apart follows Seth and Jonah, two nerdy twins, with extreme twin powers, mainly telepathy. They have fun pulling pranks and using it against the people they perceive to have wronged them, leaving them in a world all their own, but that all changes when a girl gets in the middle of things. The inherit problem with this film, is that these twins aren't creepy at all. Casting decided to go with looks over horror and these two look like they should be on magazines, like they would never have problems with bullies or girls, and as for psychotic killers with superpowers go, these two are so mild-mannered, that it made the story completely unbelievable. When you add to that the fact that Orlando Jones is the investigating detective at this upscale religious school, cracking jokes that no one gets, the film itself becomes the horror show. The story itself wasn't terrible, but the problem here is one we see all too often, the casting. These twins may be good for the Disney channel, but they aren't cut out to be psychopaths. I just found the whole film to be full of cliche's and very poorly done. Expand

I really enjoyed this movie, though probably for the wrong reasons. For me the idea of the telekinetic twins took a back seat to their relationship with one another which was far more interesting.

For me the idea of the telekinetic twins took a back seat to their relationship with one another which was far more interesting. In terms of horror, not scary in the slightest, but still a great watch. The first scene in the movie is absolutely brilliant and sets a very dark precursor for the rest of the film.The narrative falls very nicely together at the conclusion with a satisfying ending. Overall, a very good movie, but not a horror movie. Think Omen with twins. Expand
