If you mention Goodbye Gemini, chances are the person you are talking to has never heard of it. Or if they have, they've only heard the (rather cool) soundtrack, recently reissued by Harkit. Perhaps that's because the movie itself hasn't been available to buy in the UK - until now.
Yes, out as a special edition DVD in the UK via Odeon, this rather unusual swinging London-style chiller is ripe for reappraisal, even if the end product doesn't quite live up to the early part of the movie.
Mad lost British 60s horror, we can't get enough of it - which is why we're pleased to hear Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny and Girly is coming to DVD in the UK.
What can you say, what seems like a happy family is actually anything but - they're into 'The Game' and when any if the family's new friends refuse, they're swiftly bumped off. That's until a 'new friend' comes along, turning the close-knit family against each other.
Odeon is releasing this as a remastered special edition in July, which you can pre-order now. But here's the trailer to give you a taste.
Ok, you've read the review, now here's the trailer for Dr Jekyll and Sister Hyde.
This is actually a different trailer to the one that comes as an extra on the DVD and note also that the quality of the DVD release is much-improved to this clip. But if you want a flavour of the flick, here it is...
A jaunty theme tune, a timeless tale and a cast headed up by Ralph Bates, Roy Ward Baker direction and the Avengers pairing of Albert Fennell and Brian Clemens in charge of production (the latter also in charge of the screenplay). Could there be a more British horror movie than Dr Jekyll and Sister Hyde?
Of course, we're in the land of Hammer, (very) loosely based on the original Robert Louis Stevenson tale, but throwing in a bit of Jack the Ripper and Burke and Hare, not to mention the odd heaving bosom and a gallon of blood for this bizarre slice of Victoriana.
