movie cover

Description:
A sensual twist on Robert Louis Stevenson's terror classic. In foggy Victorian London, Dr. Jekyll experiments with an elixir of life which transforms him into the beautiful, but murderous, Sister Hyde. His lethal, sultry twin must stalk Whitechapel for victims to continue his blood-stained research.

In time, it becomes a battle between the two to decide the final ownership of the body that they share.

Qvamp says:

An amusing and quite queer take on the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story, which associates the more sinister transformation of the original story with gender-bending. If you're a fan of classic horror, I recommend it; if not, you'll probably not enjoy it a lot.
