SiNiSTER 2

Stay tuned for our interview spot in the “Special Features” section of your DVD or bluray.

Click here to read the full Focus Features’ production notes on SiNiSTER 2 that E&E, the movie’s “stand-twins” are featured in. Read below for a snippet of what the cast and crew has to say about Emily and Elizabeth:

“As with any major film or television production, while [director Ciaran] Foy and his crew would set up a shot the Sloan brothers stepped away and and stand-ins stepped forward…but these were no ordinary stand-ins. The crew saw double again, mirror images in the persons of identical 22-year-old female twins Emily and Elizabeth Hinkler, who were quickly dubbed the “stand-twins.” [Scott] Derrickson marvels, “They were unusual in that they share 99%+ genetic make-up.” The Hinklers have participated in genetic testing and research since childhood; one of their distinguishing factors is that while Emily is right-handed, Elizabeth is a southpaw.   [Shannyn] Sossamon admits, “I would stare at them; they were so beautiful. If you looked up the definition of ‘twin’ in the dictionary, there could be a picture of those two; you could not tell them apart.” Dartanian Sloan adds, “The fact that our stand-ins were women, and were 22, was pretty cool!” It was feasible because the actress sisters each stood just under five feet, wore their hair like the 4’6” Sloan brothers, and were comparably fair-skinned. The moviemakers were so impressed by their presence, and by their professionalism, that the Hinklers were given on-screen roles in the kill films. Elizabeth Hinkler offers, “We’re often cast as boys or as gender-neutral. It was awesome getting this job, although we’re not into scary movies.” Emily Hinkler adds, “When we go in for National Institute of Health research sessions, we’ll just be ourselves.”’
