Twin Sisters
14 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Pamela Franklin does double duty playing twin sisters Christina & Lisa Burgess. Christina returns home to visit her mother(played by Eleanor Parker) and Lisa(whom she has never met) but is stunned to find out that Lisa has recently died mysteriously. Despondent, she then begins to see her roaming the grounds and calling her name, even though she is supposed to be dead. Not sure about ghosts or not, Christina will confront her mother, and learn some damaging secrets that will mean either Lisa wants to get to know the twin sister she never met, or that she wants to kill Christina for revenge... Interesting episode may not have an entirely original plot, but is still spooky enough to succeed.
