Twins Of Evil

Synopsis: In nineteenth century middle-Europe, orphaned teenage twins Maria and Frieda go to live with their uncle Gustav Weil, who heads the Brotherhood, a vigilante group trying to stamp out vampirism. But their methods are random and misplaced and the only result is a terrorised populace. The real threat lies with Count Karnstein, and although the twins seem outwardly to be identical, Frieda finds herself much more drawn than her sister to the Count's castle dominating the skyline.

- There is no one.

- I hear them.

What is it?


I'm not a witch. I'm not.

Please, please believe me.

I am not a witch.

Please! Please.

Oh, God, have mercy on this poor,

unfortunate creature.

She is a child of the devil,

but we ask thee,

in thy great goodness,

to save her soul.

Help me!

We commend unto thee

her earthly body

and seek to purify its spirit.

Brothers, let us pray.

Look, the coach.

Come on!

Wait! Wait!

Oh, look.

That must be Karnstein Castle.

It's beautiful.

Just like a fairy tale.

Whoever owns that must be rich!

Who lives there?

Count Karnstein.

Count Karnstein.

We've never been here before.

We come from Venice.

No, no, no,

you's off that poor boy.

Maria. Frieda.

Aunt Katy.

I swear, I'll never be able

to tell the difference.

You were both about that high

when I last saw you.

Come along.

Perhaps you would like

to go to your room now and change.


Your uncle will be back soon.

Of course!

You'd like us to look our best.

Oh, no... l mean, yes.

Well, that is, we do things differently

from Venice, you see.

No! I don't see at all.

What I mean is that

had you lived in Karnstein,

you would still be wearing black.


But, Aunt Katy,

it's not lack of respect.

We wore black

for more than two months,

until last week.

We do things differently here.

Your uncle wouldn't like it.

He's a very religious man.

We didn't bring any black.

Well, perhaps something more sober.

Yes, of course, if you'd like it.

Well, thank you, Maria.

I'll show you your room.

What kind of plumage is this?

For birds of paradise?

Maria, Frieda,

this is your Uncle Gustav.

Do you know the fourth Commandment?

Which one is that?

Honor thy father and thy mother,

that thy days may be long upon the land

which the Lord thy God hath given thee.

Uncle, we didn't mean to offend you.

Your parents are not yet cold

in their graves.

Your room is at the top of the stairs.

The door is open.

Gustav, I'll get you a meal.

There is no need.

I'm going out.

There is a meeting of the Brotherhood.

The death of two young men

within the last 10 days,

and each victim bearing the mark

of the devil.

This place has been accursed

with the evil of some who abide here.

But the signs are plain.

God is calling on us

who believe in His holy Word

to stamp out that evil...

to seek out the devil worshippers...

and to purify their spirits

so that they may find mercy

at the seat of the Lord

by burning them!

I know of one.

Speak, brother.

There is a cottage in the woods.

A young girl lives there alone,

refuses to take a husband.

They say she has many husbands.

She's a creature of the devil.

- Wicked!

- Immoral.

Burn her! Burn her! Burn her!

Burn her!

Put to bed at 9:

You'd think we were 10 years old.

You'd better put out the candles.

Uncle Gustav might be back.

Let him come. I don't care.

I'm thinking about Aunt Katy.

Yes, she's terrified of him.

God! How would you like

to be married to a man like that?

I'm sure he means no harm.

Oh, no. He's a man of God.

Too good to be true.

I know his kind.

What do you mean?

I can just imagine.

If he came back now

and saw the light on in here,

that would give him

an excuse to come in.

- Frieda!

- Don't you know men like that?

Didn't you ever notice them in the park

when we were little girls,

with funny staring eyes?

- Frieda, stop it!

- You see if I'm not right.

He'd love to find us doing

something wrong just to punish us.

It would give him a thrill.

I'm not going to listen.

All right, but let me tell you,
