No 2019, the sisters previously opened up about the classic hit horror and claimed they’renaturally spooky”.

They told Cosmopolita: “We’re naturally spooky. But we did practice our timingsaying things in unisonand we worked on saying our lines in a hollow, other-worldly kind of way a number of times.

The film was based on the cult novel by master of terror, Stephen King.

It starred Jack Nicholson as Jack Torrance, a caretaker who became possessed while looking after a remote hotel where two little girls had been murdered.

The twins then appeared to Jack’s son Danny as he wheeled around the hotel’s creepy corridors on his bicycle.

The iconic scene from the movie sees the scary sisters stood at the end of a hallway saying: “Come and play with us, Danny.

But while the film is a terrifying watch, Louise and Lisa say they were never scared during filming.

“We saw people in scary makeup, but it always felt more like we were at an elaborate fancy dress party,” the two said. “It just wasn’t that freaky.”

Thirty-nine years after The Shining, a sequel to the film hit cinemas in 2019.

Doctor Sleep stars Ewan McGrgeor as an adult Danny struggling to deal with the horrors he witnessed as a young boy.
