The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Dr. Jekyll & Sister Hyde (1971)

Starring: Ralph Bates, Martine Beswick
Director: Roy Ward Baker


Premise:
A doctor searches for the way to prolong life through an elixer made from female hormones. The side effect turns the doctor into an evil female who battles for the doctor's soul.

My Take:
The movie is an interesting mesh on Jekyll & Hyde with Jack the Ripper. The way the transformation was filmed comes off as very effective with minimal special effects.
It's a likeable flick to watch from Hammer Studios but nothing really pushes it to the upper echelon. 

Rating: In the middle
