Review

Our Score
Written by Brian Clemens (longtime writer and producer of The Avengers TV series), this bizarre bisexual take on the split personality classic even includes the grave robbers Burke and Hare and a Jack the Ripper subplot. While not quite living up to its initial sensationalist hype - "the transformation of a man into a woman will take place before your very eyes", warned the ads - it's still mid-range Hammer horror with extra heat supplied by solid Ralph Bates and Martine Beswick as the good and evil flip sides.

Summary

A doctor's concoction leaves him with the ability to transform himself into a villainous woman, who proceeds to seduce the misguided medic's neighbour while wreaking havoc on the streets of Victorian London. Hammer horror, starring Ralph Bates, Martine Beswick and Gerald Sim.
