This horror/paranormal thriller follows the lives of Albert and Rose Poe over the course of 4 days that happens to include the one year anniversary of their 5 and 6-year-old daughters deaths. The day the girls died was their birthdays too. We soon learn there is more to the girls’ deaths and the house the Poe’s thought was their safe haven.
Painful is one word I could use to describe the 84-minute endurance test that is titled The Terrible Two. This half-cocked story of a couple on the one year anniversary of their twin daughters untimely death is a series of partially explained moments and forced emotions that seems to aggressively work on confusing the viewer rather than luring them into a ghost story tale.
Okay, wait. Was it really that bad? Let’s see.
“…a couple on the one year anniversary of their twin daughters untimely death…”
The film opens on Albert (Reid Doyle) and Rose Poe (Cari Moskow) as they are about to take a tour of the new, very average-looking suburban home they are considering buying. Shabby real estate agent Fred (Donny Boaz) welcomes them inside and the two marvel at the plain white walls and beige berber carpet. Upon entering the prospective nursery, Rose strokes her pregnant belly and she and Albert smile, picturing their future.
