Hammer Horror Icons: Twins of Evil

twins_bw

Madeleine and Mary Collinson, real-life twins and Playboy centerfolds (“Misses October”, 1970), play good and evil twin sisters Frieda and Maria Gellhorn in Hammer’s Gothic vampire tale, Twins of Evil (1971). Staying with their uncle Gustav (Peter Cushing), a witch-hunting religious zealot, the orphaned twins fall victim to the seductive spell of vampiric libertine, Count Karnstein (Damien Thomas).

Born in Malta in 1952, the Collinson sisters’ thick accents were dubbed over by voice actors in the film.

Gustav Weil: “The devil has sent me twins of evil!”
