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

Martine Beswick has said that her topless scenes were originally intended to feature full-frontal nudity, but she fell out with director Roy Ward Baker over how much she wanted to show, and they did not speak to one another for a week. See more »

Like Jack the Ripper the tale of Jekyll and Hyde has been told so many times you gave up counting a long time ago. Would there be a single person on the planet who doesn't know the story? So when a director makes a movie on Dr. Jekyll or Jack the Ripper and plans to amaze us, he or she should come up with either an excellent movie or a daring new approach. "Dr. Jekyll and Sister Hyde" succeeds in doing both. It is a good movie and it's quite original. Ralph Bates and Martine Beswick make a good Jekyll and Hyde and the movie is in the hands of a team that brought you very good episodes of 'The Avengers' (director Roy Ward Baker, writer Brian Clemens and the music of Laurie Johnson).
Some scenes could have been better, but a believable combination of Jekyll and Hyde is rare, so let's give them the benefit of the doubt. By the way, Susan Broderick is very good as the girl next door. Apparently she acted only in two movies (the other one is "Blow Up"), so there's another reason why you should see it.
