Our Score
Hammer ransacked J Sheridan Le Fanu's classic terror tale Carmilla for the last time in this completion of its trilogy following The Vampire Lovers and Lust for a Vampire. Mary and Madelaine Collinson - Playboy magazine's first twin centrefolds - play "which one's the vampire?" in a streamlined, if predictable, period piece that's laced with the usual quota of heaving bosoms, blood-red lipstick, lesbianism and gory decapitations. Touches of ethereal gothic atmosphere and a neat funereal flamboyancy make this slick shock package a cut above the rest.

Summary

Identical twin sisters are sent to stay with their puritanical uncle, a fanatic determined to stamp out witchcraft - but one of them falls under a bloodsucking aristocrat's thrall, leading to a lethal case of mistaken identity. Hammer horror, with Peter Cushing, Dennis Price and Madeleine and Mary Collinson.
