Hammer horror classic starring Peter Cushing. A pair of twins, Maria and Frieda, move from Vienna to the village of Karstein to live with Aunt Katy and grim Uncle Gustav (Cushing) in the shadow of the dreaded Karstein Castle. Gustav is a fanatical Puritan and leader of a religious sect - the Brotherhood, feared for their witch hunts and burnings. At the castle, a mock sacrificial rite is organised, where Count Karnstein stabs a girl strapped to a sarcophagus and reincarnates his vampire ancestor the beautiful Countess Mircalla Karnstein. Her first act is to bite the count, turning him into a vampire. The Count then captures the beautiful Frieda and sinks his fangs into her neck and she, too, is transformed into one of the undead. The Brotherhood manage to capture Frieda and prepare to burn her at the stake but Karnstein manages to switch the twins. Maria will face the fire while Frieda goes free to create evil havoc.

No small part of the appeal are the delectable Collinson twins as Maria and Frida, orphaned Italians sent to live with their tyranical uncle (yet another star turn from the great Peter Cushing). This was, of course, early 70's Hammer, when the technicolour gore of old was supplemented with the thrill of a bit of sultry female flesh - the film was indeed designed with the Collinsons in mind, fresh from their breakthrough as Playboy's first double centrefold! That said, by modern standards the sexual content is fairly tame: there are only a few brief moments of nudity, but heaving corsetted bosoms aplenty, and a deluge of suggestive imagery - witness the hand that strokes the candlestick, and the way Frida's eyes light up at the words "stripped naked!"
The cheap and cheerful atmosphere that Hammer movies are famed for is here in full force, with lots of blatant day-for-night photography, flimsy sets and primitive special effects. This, of course, is all part of what makes these films so endearing - but it shouldn't be taken to mean the power to shock is not there. A scene of human sacrifice and a phenomal decapitation can still get a jump out of the viewer today.
Those new to Hammer could find worse places to start; those who love Hammer will be in their element. Buy it now! Or I'll be sending Gustav and the boys around.

2 relatives of his - sexy young 'Twins' visit him - one gets involved with a vampire while the other plays the heroine. This contains the usual hammer gore, maybe a little stronger in this movie and it contains gratuitous nudity - so it ain't for children folks..
Bloody entertaining, a fine horror movie and a must for Cushing fans...
The DVD is widescreen and contains all deleted footage that was apparently on older releases (DVD or VHS)
This is the one to get from Optimum Entertainment..Cool booklet too...
Hoping for a UK release of 'Vampire Circus' 'Dr Jekyll & Sister Hyde' & 'Captain Kronos-Vampire Hunter' soon!
The plot two pretty twins go to stay with their uncle(Cushing) who has a hobby which consists of dressing up and hunting down and burning evil doers (mostly young single women). He is however unable to act against the brash baron (damien thomas) because he has friend in high places. The Baron grows board with his debauched ways and decides to sacrifice himself to become a vampire. He then sets his sights on the beautiful twins one is eager one isnt which is which? Another fine mess for mr Cushing to sort out. The film is quite well done with some tense moments and an excellent atmosphere. Some good ideas to one I like is that you cant become a vampire unless you are evil if you are good and bitten by a vampire you just die mores the pity!
