Twisted Sisters (2006) from Tuna

Twisted Sisters (2006) is a direct-to-vid from writer/director/producer Wolfgang Büld. As the title suggests, the story contains the surprise evil twin, but it can be forgiven because is not the plot device used as the last minute solution to a mystery. In fact, we know about the evil twin less than half way into the film, as do the police.

Men start turning up very dead with holes where their genitals used to be, and witnesses identify Jennifer (Fiona Horsey) as the murderer. She seems like an unlikely candidate. She's had a perfect life, and is now pregnant and with a perfect man. It isn't until her parents confess that she is adopted and that she may have a twin sister that we learn about Norah (also played by Fiona Horsey). Norah had a very different life from her twin, having been raised by an uncle who raped her early and often, and later having spent time in a hospital for the criminally insane after having removed the same uncle's objectionable bits. Norah is insanely jealous of Jennifer's happiness, and is bent on evening up the score.

Since the evil twin bit is revealed mid-film, there are clearly many plot twists to come after. The strength of this film, however, is not the plot but the inventive murders, the most creative of which was accomplished by a large fireworks apparatus in a man's asshole.

The comments and reviews from the genre specialists tend toward the positive, and I would agree. It's a solid straight-to-vid. Fiona Horsey played the two characters well, the murders were clever, and the motivations were believable.




Fiona Horsey shows her breasts and bum in each of her two roles.

The People Vote ...

The meaning of the IMDb score: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence equivalent to about three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, comparable to approximately two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, equivalent to about a two star rating from the critics, or a C- from our system. Films rated below five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film - this score is roughly equivalent to one and a half stars from the critics or a D on our scale. (Possibly even less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

Our own guideline:

  • A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre.
  • B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. Any film rated B- or better is recommended for just about anyone. In order to rate at least a B-, a film should be both a critical and commercial success. Exceptions: (1) We will occasionally rate a film B- with good popular acceptance and bad reviews, if we believe the critics have severely underrated a film. (2) We may also assign a B- or better to a well-reviewed film which did not do well at the box office if we feel that the fault lay in the marketing of the film, and that the film might have been a hit if people had known about it. (Like, for example, The Waterdance.)
  • C+ means it has no crossover appeal, but will be considered excellent by people who enjoy this kind of movie. If this is your kind of movie, a C+ and an A are indistinguishable to you.
  • C means it is competent, but uninspired genre fare. People who like this kind of movie will think it satisfactory. Others probably will not.
  • C- indicates that it we found it to be a poor movie, but genre addicts find it watchable. Any film rated C- or better is recommended for fans of that type of film, but films with this rating should be approached with caution by mainstream audiences, who may find them incompetent or repulsive or both. If this is NOT your kind of movie, a C- and an E are indistinguishable to you.
  • D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. We don't score films below C- that often, because we like movies and we think that most of them have at least a solid niche audience. Now that you know that, you should have serious reservations about any movie below C-. Films rated below C- generally have both bad reviews and poor popular acceptance.
  • E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre.
  • F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well.


Based on this description, this film is a C.
