Well this is amusing

It turns out two horror flicks--no doubt, TERRIBLE horror flicks--have a sibling theme. The Friday the 13th remake set to open, yes, Friday the 13th, features a man searching around Camp Crystal Lake (site of Jason's massacre) for his long-lost sister. I don't know any more details than that, but she must have been one of the randy counselors that so offended Jason's sensibilities. The other is called The Unborn, and features a young woman haunted by her unborn twin, who'd like to take over her life, thanks very much. Talk about sibling rivalry. (I'm guessing my friends at Twinless Twins aren't going to be too fond of this one.)

I've always said that there's an unspoken genre of sibling loss movies and books. But this is the first time I've noticed it in the horror genre. I wonder if there are others. Anyone?
