Goodbye weirdos
15 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

The freak twins, Judy Geeson (Jacki) and Martin Potter (Julian) come to London to stay in a house in Chelsea and they immediately hit the party scene thanks to a meeting with Alexis Kanner (Clive) in a pub. Kanner is strange – he's a nasty conman who uses people but he's not as strange as the twins. Geeson and Potter are both child-like with Geeson laughing way too much at things that aren't funny and Potter being obsessively possessive about his sister. Worse, they love each other – and I mean actually love in an incestuous way that includes a physical relationship. So, it's uncomfortable viewing. The twins exact revenge on a couple of people. Are they untouchable?

This film is way too weird and not particularly enjoyable. You watch because you don't know where it's going but once watched, I think you get rid. It reminded me a bit of "Beyond the valley of the Dolls" but set amongst a seedy London party scene. Both films are not good and dish out some horror as well as peculiar characters that are scary and hard to relate to. Scary in a sexuality scary kind of way. Michael Redgrave (James) pops up in this as a familiar face on TV whilst Mike Pratt (Rodd) is probably the best in the cast as a debt collector.

As a Londoner, I recognized the locales – I spotted Cheyne Walk, Notting Hill Gate and Shepherds Bush Market and I know for a fact that there were hotels like that in Paddington in the 1980s. Dodgy ones. The central characters of the twins were just too weird.
