“If I ever had twins, I'd use one for parts.”
― Stephen Wright
Films featuring identical twins, clones, duplicates, body doubles, carbon copies, replicas, mirror selves, and dead ringers.
Meeting your doppelgänger is typically meant to portend your own death, and there's much about identical twins to lend them great dramatic potential. Whether their origins are biological or supernatural (or created via experimentation with closed timelike curves), encountering your doppelgänger often represents the (oft repressed) dual nature of the human person, and can serve as an arena for the battle between good and evil.
This list does not contain movies featuring fraternal twins, like Adam Sandler's 'Jack And Jill', non-identical clones, like 'Logan', or films where characters switch identities entirely, such as John Woo's 'Face Off' or 'Freaky Friday'.
Be aware that, in some films, the reveal of an identical twin plot-line can be spoilery. Browse this list with caution.
