Twins of Evil

Film, Horror

Time Out says

Hammer climaxed scriptwriter Tudor Gates's Sheridan Le Fanu trilogy (The Vampire Lovers and Lust for a Vampire) with this little number: Puritan witch-hunting and rum goings-on at Castle Karnstein in Pinewood Austria. The centrefold Collinson twins are a sabre-toothed fiend (Madeleine) and a damsel in distress (Mary), effectively marking out the tension between virginal repression and unchecked licentiousness lying at the core of the genre. Some moments of Gothic atmosphere though, don't quite dispel the feeling that much of the plot is devoted to developing situations where its leading ladies might be disrobed for the camera.
