|Twins of Evil|
After being orphaned, two identical twin girls (Mary and Madeleine Collinson) move from Vienna to a small Central European village to live with their uncle Gustav (Peter Cushing) and his wife. Gustav is a religious zealot and leader of a puritanical group called "The Brotherhood" that "purifies" the locals who perform sinful acts by burning them at the stake. Both of the twin girls, Frieda and Maria are not happy with their new arrangements. Frieda absolutely resents her uncle and his way of life and is attracted to the young Count Karnstein who lives in the castle overlooking the town.

Twins of Evil is worth watching just for Peter Cushing's performance alone. He is intense. But it's also a great movie and unlike Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde which promised to deliver shock after shock and then failed, the last twenty minutes of Twins of Evil did surprise me - especially Frieda's demise. I definitely recommend this movie. It's one of my favorite Hammer films.
