Babs Steele in a dual role: one voluptuous sister self-assured and perhaps a wee little tiny bit vindictive, and the other sister (just as voluptuous somehow, IDK) not-so-assured and maybe a little cray-cray. Add one "my other job is a mad scientist" jealous husband, one hunky beefcake chauffeur, and simmer. C-grade horror aspirations just waiting for you to find a better movie to double feature date night to. This'll be the make-out movie. Enjoy.

This film is from the Barbara Steele collection and also in the 1965 Italian Films collection. What is really cool about this picture is that Barbara Steele actually plays two different people. Pretty neat for 1965. Of course we have a mad doctor who is using the blood and heart of his latest wife to inject and keep young his assistant. But in order to keep Hampton Castle he must marry the sister of his dead wife. Also kind of neat for some of the names in this movie Hampton Castle (Hampton's on Long Island), Dr Arrowsmith ( Group Aerosmith), and Dr Joyce (Dr Joyce Brothers of the 1970 time frame, Was there some meaning behind this, I doubt it but still I thought it was neat. When the ghost return at the end the special facial effects is enough to keep any child under 12 from sleeping. All in all a pretty neat 1965 Black and White Creature Feature type film. 3 1/2 stars

Great movie, I love the story and characters, it's crazy and scary, it's both a mad scientist story and a ghost story. Plus, I loved how Steele plays sisters. I really liked this movie.
