In Victorian London, Dr. Henry Jekyll attempts to create an elixir of life using female hormones stolen from fresh corpses. He reasons that these hormones will wipe out all common diseases and extend his life since women live much longer than men. However, once Dr. Jekyll drinks the serum himself, he transforms into a gorgeous but evil woman. He soon needs female hormones for his serum to maintain, so a number of London women meet bloody deaths. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

Dude looks like a lady
13 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

I'v seen many variations on the Jekyll and Hyde story, one could say too many. But this Hammer film about Dr. Jekyll (Ralph Bates) who changes into a woman (Martin Beswick) with the help of female estrogen from girls that he's killed, stands as one of the better ones. And as a latter day Hammer film it easily stands out from the pack, although not reaching the splendid heights of films that were produced in Hammer studio's heyday. nonetheless, I found the film to have a suitable mood to it, and well-acted.

DVD Extras: Audio commentary by director Roy Ward Baker, actress Martine Beswick, writer/co-producer Brian Clemens, moderated by Hammer Films historian/author Marcus Hearn; 2 radio spots; Poster and still gallery; and Cast & crew bios

My Grade: B

Eye Candy: Martine Beswick lets loose her twin torpedoes
