My Opinion:

Take the classic tale of Dr Jekyll who transforms himself into the sinister Mr Hyde and add a twist. That's what Hammer did with this classic release from 1971 turning the gruesome Mr Hyde into Sister Hyde - a stunning figure compared to her Dr Jekyll alter ego! Sister Hyde though is just as evil and blood thirsty as her 'brother' and the killing continues throughout the film. Don't expect anything too gruesome (it's a Hammer film after all!), but do expect a good story, with great actors and the usual quality Hammer sets and costumes. The outstanding performance comes from the late Ralph Bates who would later go on to star in the comedy series Dear John before his untimely death. The transfer to DVD is a decent quality bearing in mind the age of the picture, but it's a shame about the lack of DVD extras.
