Twins of Evil is a 1971 horror film made by Hammer Film Productions — you know, the company that made cheap and cheesy horror movies in the 1960s and 70s, like all the Dracula, Frankenstein, and Mummy movies. This one is set in the Regency era in Germany and stars Hot Twins who get their boobs out. What more do you need for Halloween?
Sadly, no costume designer is credited on IMDB, so I can’t praise or mock him/her!
Apparently this is the third in a trilogy of horror films, following The Vampire Lovers (1970) and Lust for a Vampire (1971). I don’t think I’ve seen either, and it didn’t seem to be a problem that I hadn’t.
The movie is historical horror shlock, with gloomy castles, vampires, and bonus Puritans ranting about evil. The lead actresses are real-life twins who play Maria and Frieda, who have been orphaned and so leave their hometown of Venice to live with their uncle in Germany…. who turns out to be a ranting Puritan type…
who is busy (with his gang) burning random peasant women at the stake who they’ve arbitrarily decided are witches.
Maria is the good girl who gets a crush on local schoolteacher Anton…
Freida is baaaad, and sneaks out at night to hang with the local aristocrat Count Karnstein, who turns out to be a vampire.
It took me most of the movie to figure out what era it was supposed to be set in — I kept wavering between 17th century, Regency, and “ye oldey timey.”
I actually liked some of the sisters’ costumes, like these matching redingote-styled traveling outfits:
And these pink redingote-styled dresses were similarly cute:
Of course, they’re twins so ALL of their outfits had to match, right down to their sheer, ruffly nighties:
Both sisters were very much of the “I don’t care if it’s historically accurate, I just want my tits out” camp:
Count Karnstein was all puffy hair and big collars:
Uncle Gustav and his band of witch-hunters favored the 17th century Puritan look. Meanwhile, Anton rocked the brown cravat, which made him look like he was wearing a turtleneck.
And you get special bonus lesbian-interest-vampires-biting-boobs!
