SYNAPSE FILMS PRESENTS

PETER CUSHING in JOHN HOUGH’S


TWINS OF EVIL

from THE HAMMER HORROR COLLECTION

Luscious Playboy cen­ter­fold twins, Mary and Madeleine Collinson, bring new blood to the leg­endary Hammer Films fold in this new trans­fer of a most elu­sive film in hor­ror his­to­ry, John Hough’s TWINS OF EVIL, now on Blu-ray and DVD from Synapse Films!

Two beau­ti­ful orphaned iden­ti­cal twins, Maria and Frieda Gellhorn (Playboy cen­ter­fold mod­els Mary and Madeleine Collinson), move to the vil­lage of Karnstein to live with their uncle Gustav Weil (played by Hammer hor­ror favorite, Peter Cushing), a fanat­i­cal puri­tan and lead­er of the local witch-hunt­ing “Brotherhood.”

The vil­lage Count (Damien Thomas, Never Let Me Go), is an evil man who secret­ly prac­tices Satanism, uses black mag­ic and trans­forms into a blood­thirsty vam­pire.  Unhappy with her new life, Frieda seeks escape and trag­i­cal­ly falls under the spell of the Count. Now over­come with an insa­tiable deliri­ous hunger for fresh human blood, Frieda has to hide her secret from her sis­ter, and escape her uncle’s killing grasp!

The wait is over! The Hammer hor­ror clas­sic TWINS OF EVIL is now avail­able from Synapse Films in an all-new 1080p high-def­i­n­i­tion trans­fer and load­ed with intox­i­cat­ing exclu­sive spe­cial fea­tures.
