I have arranged my thoughts into a haiku:

There are some horror stories where two protagonists fuse into a single individual, causing confusion of the distinction between them. Depending on their character, many facts could occur, from the romantic achievements to the crimes of difficult solution.

One of those stories that came to my mind is the David Cronenberg's movie "Dead Ringers", based on the book "Twins" by Bari Wood and Jack Geasland, where two gynecological brothers weave a frightening psychological plot.

1888. An uncanny story of twins who have a mysterious connection. This isn't the first story to have twins with a supernatural connection, Dumas' "The Corsican Brothers" was written in 1844. This is so well written that it still feels original all these years later. I'm surprised this was never a Twilight Zone episode. Enjoyable from beginning to end. Audible edition narrated by Anthony Heald.

Twin brothers who are so close to each other emotionally also.

When one twin faces danger the other one can also feel it.
