This is a weird exploitation flick that reminded me a bit of Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny and Girly [Girly] only it's not quite as good. The story revolves around unusually (disturbingly) close twins Jacki & Julian who have moved into house in London England. They seem to go in for the swingin' scene and go to parties, but they make a scene as they are a little too infatuated with one another. Jacki carries around a teddy bear and the two play games as though they were children. They sort of have their own little fantasy world where intruders are not welcome...okay so that's more of Julian's style than Jacki's but still. They make friends with a gambler named Clive and that's where things seem to take a turn for the worst. He has some debts that need paying so he tries to blackmail Julian and let's just say it's not a good idea to mess with these two. It's very strange all around and not exactly a bloody horror film or anything, but it certainly works and was entertaining.

Availability:  On DVD
