Peter Cushing is a cold-hearted religious fanatic who burns young women who are gorgeously cleavage-clothed. Above average acting help, but Mary Collison play a weak God-fearing nice girl, fittingly named Maria that lacks true personality. It would probably have had added appeal had the twins been a little more trashy too.
A much neglected Hammer horror starring the wondrous Peter Cushing and two tasty twin Malteaser tarts with delectable cleavages and eye-watering thighs underneath see-through negligées on display. Totally over the top and who knew that a New England-style Puritan sect existed in olde Austria? The decapitation at the end is a treat to look forward to.
The gimmick is featuring the first Playboy Centerfold twins as the twins in the movie which is bursting with bounteous bosoms (among which the twins' are unexceptional (perfectly fine, but unexceptional in this company). The movie includes commentary on mob mentality, puritanicalism, and persecution. It's well filmed, and has decent performances including the always reliable Peter Cushing.
Pay attention during the first crucial love scene. It moves like a mid-90s erotic thriller. Truly bizarre little anomaly in the middle of a great late period hammer film. If you can get behind a film that casts the first ever Twin playboy centerfolds, this one's for you.
