Even the vampire is decidedly Nordic played by Yutte Stensgaard.









And then we come to the last, and some say the best, of the Karnstein Trilogy, "Twins of Evil" (1971).

I'm not sure if this is one of my favorites because it's really that good or if it is because it is just so damn rare and hard to find. I won't go into what I had to do to get a region free NTSC version of the UK studio release on DVD.

This one is really different and stars twins Mary and Madeleine Collinson who are famous for being the first twin centerfolds in Playboy magazine.

Hammer definitely stepped away from the "formula" for this film which starts out with a local band of puritans who round up and kill all the single hot babes on a witch hunt looking for vampires. Of course all the ones they kill are just hot babes (in fact the puritans kill more women trying to save the village than the vampires killed).

One of the best things about a Hammer film is no matter how hot the babes or how much cleavage they never stray from the gothic horror feel. I love that shit.



Some think the Karnstein Trilogy was really the last hurrah for Hammer horror films and in many ways they are correct. But one film does deserve honorable mention if only for the babe Caroline Munro and that is "Captain Kronos - Vampire Hunter" (1974).





And there are several others including "The Kiss of the Vampire" (1963) and if you want a great vampire (but with less babes) film try "Dracula: Prince of Darkness" (1966).

Most of these titles, and other Hammer films, are out on DVD and will be rather enjoyable for classic horror fans. And if you enjoyed this post, you might want to check out Hammer Glamour by Marcus Hearn

Happy Halloween.

Indeed! The Hammer Beauties invoke serious drool whenever/wherever they are seen, like I am, right now.

Superb thread and a wonderful ode to the Hammer House of Hotties.

This one earns the much-deserved Sticky status in the Classic Horror section, which it will get in the next 24 hours.
