Twitches (2005)

An underrated fantasy film about war, home, and finding your family.

Regan Humphrey

Twin princesses, Apolla (Tamera Mowry) and Artemis (Tia Mowry), are separated at birth and raised on Earth, when an evil force known as The Darkness decimates their home–Coventry, a magical dimension. On Earth, they are raised as Camryn and Alex, without magic, knowledge of each other or their homeland. On Halloween, the eve of their 21st birthday, they come of age and must return to Coventry to defeat The Darkness or else lose their home and their lives.
