This entry in Hammer Films' long-running vampire series of the '60s and '70s is one of the most evocative and original. The story features voluptuous twin Playboy centerfolds Madeleine and Mary Collinson as sisters who, without parents, are sent to stay with their oppressive uncle (Peter Cushing, looking more emaciated than ever), who happens to live near the sinister Karnstein Castle, the locale of countless vampiric happenings in two prequels (The Vampire Lovers and Lust for a Vampire).

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's well performed, adequately eerie (with terrific lighting), superbly scored, and filled with enough heaving bosoms to pass muster. At the end of the day, that's all one can truly ask of a B-level fright film."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"The film offers more than just a gimmick, thanks to the shifting dynamics between the characters, the emphasis on evil at both ends of the spectrum, and a shot of witchcraft into the usual vampiric proceedings."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"Even though time has since separated the film from its Playboy gimmick, TWINS still has a campy feel to it"
‑ Shane Burridge, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"The lively and atmospheric but flawed horror pic might be routine and limited by its slack story, but it is entertaining and holds up better than most vampire pics."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The true Twins of Evil are not the sisters but the puritan witch-burner, Gustav Weil, and the vampire aristocrat, Count Karnstein: The men have similarly cadaverous faces, and at one point are introduced by looming closeups that reinforce the resemblance."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"These ain't the Doublemint twins. We're talking horror....Hammer style. "Twins of Evil" is the 1971 classic from Britain's Hammer Studios featuring Peter Cushing as the leader of a Puritan witch-hunting club."
‑ Paul Chambers, Movie Chambers
"... earns its place in the Hammer canon of cult horrors."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Parallax View
