I'm fighting the urge to start this article off by quoting "STOP... Hammer time!", but I am too much of a professional for that silliness. I will begin by saying that watching Twins of Evil made me think a lot about filmmaking these days. Today there is a lot of rehashing, remaking and re-imagining of old movies and ideas and the problem I have with that is not exactly the lack of originality, but the inability of most of them to entertain me. Most have hacky directors or horrendous acting and some of them are just plain fucking boring and I want to chew my own nipples off just to see if I'm still alive while watching them. But back in the day Hammer Films and director John Hough gave a clinic on how to tell a well-known story the right way. Apparently it just takes some damn talent... that and some really awesome twin cleavage.
