Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – In nineteenth century middle-Europe, orphaned teenage twins Maria and Frieda go to live with their uncle Gustav Weil, who heads the Brotherhood, a vigilante group trying to stamp out vampirism. But their methods are random and misplaced and the only result is a terrorised populace. The real threat lies with Count Karnstein, and although the twins seem outwardly to be identical, Frieda finds herself much more drawn than her sister to the Count’s castle dominating the skyline.
Plot: While dabbling in Satanism, Count Karstein resurrects Mircalla Karnstein who initiates him into vampirism. As a rash of deaths afflicts the village, Gustav the head of Puritan group leads his men to seek out and destroy the pestilence. One of his twin nieces has become inflicted with the witchcraft but Gustav’s zeal and venom has trapped the innocent Maria, threatening her with a tortuous execution, whilst Frieda remains free to continue her orgy of evil.

The evil that men do.

The final part of Hammer Films Karnstein Trilogy is in keeping with what made the studios output so readily embraced by the horror faithful. Based on characters created by Sheridan Le Fanu, Hammer take one of their vampire movies and add puritan witch-
finding into the mix as well.

Upon the death of their parents identical twins Maria and Frieda Gellhorn are relocated to Karnstein in Central Europe to live with their Uncle Gustav Weil. Weil is a stern puritan who leads a fanatical bunch of witch-hunters known as the Brotherhood, this is a problem because the twins are going through sexual awakenings. Opposing the Brotherhood is the aristocracy, headed by Count Karnstein, a man of debauchery who is soon to sell his soul to the devil and drag one of the Gellhorn twins with him…

It would be easy to assume that the twins of evil of the title are the two girls, here played with a nifty gimmick by real life playboy twins Mary and Madeline Collinson, but it’s not the case. The girls are in the middle of two evils, wicked men on either side of them, God and Satan their respective keepers. This coupled with the political and religious sub-texts bubbling away, makes this a narratively smart picture.

Production values are high, with the smart period design and costuming given an atmospheric sheen by cinematographer Dick Bush. Director John Hough provides solid direction and smooth camera work, while Harry Robertson’s music has the requisite olde world gothic about it.

Peter Cushing heads the cast superbly as Weil, looking gaunt due to his personal tragedy, he mesmerises as a man increasingly crumbling under the weight of emotional confliction. Dennis Price others sturdy support but is done no favours by the writer (Tudour Gates) as he is under developed, while the twins themselves, their voices dubbed, are fine and able to put enough of a different slant on their characters for us viewers to know which one is which. Damien Thomas’ lustily fanged count is not a particularly striking villain, and David Warbeck as the normal love interest is too weak an actor to convince in the role.

One of the better horrors from Hammer’s 70s output. 7/10

***Great Gothic horror ambiance, good cast, magnificent score, so-so story***

Orphaned twin sisters (Madeleine & Mary Collinson) are forced to move from Venice to Styria, Austria, to live with their puritan uncle (Peter Cushing), who’s hell-bent on hunting down witches and burning them at the stake. One of the sisters, Frieda (Madeleine), refuses to tolerate her uncle’s legalistic abuse and is drawn to the diabolic hedonism happening at nearby Karnstein Castle. Once Count Karnstein (Damien Thomas) performs a satanic ritual that resurrects his vampiric ancestor, Mircalla, and he is converted to the undead, he intends to do the same with Frieda.

“Twins of Evil” (1971) is the third entry in Hammer’s so-called Karnstein Trilogy, named after the female vampire Mircalla, who is actually Countess Carmilla Karnstein (note the anagram). The previous two films are “The Vampire Lovers” (1970) and “Lust for a Vampire” (1971). This one is a prequel to those, all three based on “Carmilla” by Irish novelist Sheridan Le Fanu, which was originally published as a serial in 1871-72, some 26 years before Bram Stoker’s “Dracula.”

Of the Karnstein Trilogy, “Twins of Evil” bears the least resemblance to “Carmilla” as it adds a witch-hunting angle (that naturally brings to mind 1968’s “Witchfinder General,” aka “The Conqueror Worm”) and Carmilla is decidedly a peripheral character, upstaged by the Dracula-like Count Karnstein. Damien Thomas, incidentally, is quite charismatic in the role and just as effective, if not better, compared to Christopher Lee.

I’m not sure when this story take place. The Puritan-like apparel worn by the religious brotherhood makes it seem like anywhere from the mid-1600s thru the 1700s, but I suppose it could occur closer to the time “Carmilla” was published, making it the mid-1800s.

The actresses who play the titular twins were the first identical twin Playmates of the Month for Playboy. They appeared in the mag in October, 1970, the year before this flick was released. They’re certainly cute and are surprisingly effective in their roles, but they don’t do anything for me on an erogenous level. However, the good twin/bad twin theme is compelling, although it contradicts the title.

In addition, there’s an interesting subplot about how legalism can morph a good man into a dour killjoy. While the Karnsteins & their converts are wholly satanic, Gustav Weil (Cushing) & his Brotherhood have fallen prey to a less overt kind of evil in the form of religious legalism. Meanwhile Anton Hoffer (David Warbeck) represents the honorable middle ground.

The score by British composer Harry Robinson is outstanding with a slight Spaghetti Western flare. The movie even has the feel of a Western in the first act, but it turns to Gothic horror as soon as the satanic rituals & vampirism surface. Aside from the Collinson twins, “Twins of Evil” features a nice smorgasbord of females.

The film runs 1 hour and 27 minutes and was shot at Pinewood Studios, Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire, England.

GRADE: B-/C+

Hammer and Vampires — Win, of Course
Gustav Weil (Peter Cushing) is the leader of a rampaging vigilante group determined to eradicate vampires and witches. Weil’s job is complicated when his twin nieces move in with him, and one of them is attracted to the local bloodsucker. Frieda and Maria (Madeleine and Mary Collinson) discover the allure of sinister aristocrat Count Karnstein (Damien Thomas), and he unleashes the evil inherent in one of them … but can Weil tell which one?

Netflix says this film features “busty teenage orphans”. Not sure what to make of that. I guess it is true they do spend part of the time laying around in low-cut nightgowns, and another time the nightgown of one comes open when a crucifix is thrown at her, and they were Playboy models, but is this the selling point of the film?

From director John Hough (“Legend of Hell House”), based off of “Camilla” and being a Hammer Production, you know this is going to be good. Not sure what to make of the black servant who grunts and gesticulates wildly, being treated like Lassie, though.

Some reviews stress the way this film “tears” the audience: you do not want to root for the vampire, but you also do not want to side with the puritan. I thought the decision was pretty easy, but maybe some people get torn on issues like this.

Filmed on the same set as the better-known “Vampire Circus”, this one is not to be missed. Really, any time Peter Cushing fights vampires is not to be missed.
