Touches of ethereal gothic atmosphere and a neat funereal flamboyancy make this slick shock package a cut above the rest.

Part of the fascination lies in the variations on the familiar typology.

TV Guide

An effective examination of the conflict between repression and hedonism.

It's well performed, adequately eerie (with terrific lighting), superbly scored, and filled with enough heaving bosoms to pass muster. At the end of the day, that's all one can truly ask of a B-level fright film.

The lively and atmospheric but flawed horror pic might be routine and limited by its slack story, but it is entertaining and holds up better than most vampire pics.

These ain't the Doublemint twins. We're talking horror....Hammer style. "Twins of Evil" is the 1971 classic from Britain's Hammer Studios featuring Peter Cushing as the leader of a Puritan witch-hunting club.

The film offers more than just a gimmick, thanks to the shifting dynamics between the characters, the emphasis on evil at both ends of the spectrum, and a shot of witchcraft into the usual vampiric proceedings.

The true Twins of Evil are not the sisters but the puritan witch-burner, Gustav Weil, and the vampire aristocrat, Count Karnstein: The men have similarly cadaverous faces, and at one point are introduced by looming closeups that reinforce the resemblance.

... earns its place in the Hammer canon of cult horrors.

There is subversion aplenty.

Even though time has since separated the film from its Playboy gimmick, TWINS still has a campy feel to it

John Hough has given Tudor Gates' script a good pace and directed so that audiences can take it as straight horror or as a slight send-up.

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.

The rest of the costumed crew, led by that veteran horror hand, Peter Cushing, as the twins' witchhunting uncle, who chases the fanged Count and his retinue, hardly give Twins of Evil a good name.
May 24, 2003
An enjoyable romp from a studio in its twilight years.
