The Trumps were welcomed at the Buckingham Palace during US president Donald Trump’s state visit to the UK, but what should have been a friendly scenario has ended up appearing like horror flick material instead.
Social media users have remarked that Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner seem like haunted figures in photos of them looking out of a window at their welcoming ceremony.

Most notably, their deadpan gazes have been likened to those of the twins in The Shining. “I see the creepy twins from The Shining have been given a grown up reboot,” one Twitter user points out.
“Very excited to see Stanley Kubrick’s long-lost masterpiece, ‘The Dimming’,” writer Peter Birkenhead jokes. Another user declares it’s as if the film has been made “way scarier.”
Elsewhere, the couple has also drawn comparisons with the child ghosts from 2001’s The Others, characters from a Wes Anderson movie, and a still from a Get Out sequel.
Even filmmaker Jordan Peele seems petrified at the images, commenting that he has “been getting a lot of great inspiration [for movies] recently.”
Thus far, Donald Trump’s three-day visit to the UK has been greeted with jest by citizens, with one student sacrificing his study time to mow a giant phallic image to “welcome” the president.

They’ll learn. Once I’m king.
