The Spanish psychological horror thriller, Tin & Tina, takes religious zealotry to unabashed new heights. Written and directed by Goya-nominated filmmaker Rubin Stein, it maintains a sense of grounded realism by using divinity as a persuasive force guiding the characters’ lives.

While watching the film, you’ll wonder if the siblings have supernatural powers or if they carry out God’s will by following the Bible to the letter.

Additionally, how their adoptive parents, Lola and Adolfo, experience the trauma of a miscarriage causes them to turn a blind eye to their new children’s cruel ways.

10 Movies like Tin & Tina

The Bad Seed (1956)

A rare critical and financial smash hit, the 1956 psychological horror film earned over four million dollars (125 million in today’s dollars) on a one million dollar budget and was received positively by critics. The Bad Seed follows a mother who suspects her perfect little nine-year-old girl may be a ruthless killer.

Case 39 (2010)

Here is a film that was plagued for years and was shelved for three years after a fire broke out on the set during filming and was delayed twice in the United States before its 2010 release. The story follows Emily (Renee Zellweger), a social worker who saves a girl, Lily (Jodelle Ferland), when her parents try to burn her alive, but little does she know that Lily’s a demon ruining people’s lives.

Children of the Damned (1964)

Tin & Tina borrows much of its aesthetic by making the titular characters look like the children from the 1964 classic (and its critically panned 1995 remake starring Christopher Reeve). Tin and Tina “have pale skin, white-blonde hair, cobalt eyes, and fierce intellect.” However, the Children of the Damned are born evil when ten women become mysteriously pregnant after a town blackout.

Fever Dream (2021)

Director Claudia Llosa’s Fever Dream has a uniquely immersive timing and visually stunning pace, with evocative and wonderfully atmospheric visuals. The story follows Amanda and her young son Nina, who vacation in a farmhouse. Nina befriends David, the son of their next-door neighbors, whose mother believes he is evil.

Frailty (2001)

Not all serial killers are bad people. Some are family men who teach their children the family business. Some men believe this is God’s work, murdering for the greater good. That’s what you have in Frailty, the late Bill Paxton’s modern horror classic that follows Meiks, a father who lost his wife and teaches his sons, Fenton and Adam, that God is telling them to hunt demons in human form.

The Good Son (1993)

Maybe we had it all wrong when Harry and Marv broke into the McCallister home to apprehend Kevin. Macaulay Culkin stars in The Good Son, a 1993 American psychological thriller, where an aunt and uncle take in their nephew Henry after his parents were killed. Similar to Tin & Tina, Henry starts to display evil and vindictive behavior, not only toward their son but also towards family pets.

Knock at the Cabin (2023)

This tightly wound thriller with a phenomenal cast, Knock at the Cabin is an exceptionally well-made thriller with satisfying flaws to pick at and debate. The story follows a group led by Leonard (Dave Bautista) terrorizing a couple and their adopted daughter because they believe a prophecy wields them to save the world. To fulfill the prophecy, someone in the family must sacrifice themselves.

Orphan (2009)

Orphan has become such a cult classic it inspired a prequel that streamed on Paramount+ last year. While the follow-up was a humdrum bore, the original, starring Isabelle Fuhrman as Esther, has one of the best final twists in horror film history. Like Tin & Tina, after a couple’s miscarriage, they adopt a nine-year-old Russian girl only to discover she is so much more than meets the eye.

We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011)

We Need To Talk About Kevin follows a mother’s search for answers after a Columbine-style shooting. Tilda Swinton portrays Eva, the mother of Kevin, who becomes a mass shooter. While Lynne Ramsay’s script avoids supernatural themes like those in Tin & Tina, there share a common theme of transforming seemingly ordinary children into evil people.

You Should Have Left (2020)

Kevin Bacon plays Theodore, a retired banker who moves to Wales with his (much younger) wife Susanna (Amanda Seyfried) and daughter Ella, but their new home is haunted, dredging up their tumultuous, emotional past. You notice the connection between the haunted home in this David Koepp film and Tin & Tina’s Gothic look, wondering if the home has a spirit controlling it or the siblings.
