Twin Trouble
5 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

This outing of Brian Clemens's "Thriller" series is adequate and quite entertaining but well below the usual excellent standards. In my opinion it is the weakest of the lot.

The story revolves around a pair of twins - one a normal, sane architect; the other a deadly psychopath languishing in prison. Unfortunately for the wider world the psychopathic twin escapes and goes on a killing spree, mainly of women who do not meet his standards of "perfection". Obviously his brother finds himself the victim of mistake identity and his friends become endangered ...

While the premise is engaging, the execution of the story is disappointing. The key actors are in mediocre form; the writing and direction are pedestrian and fail to strike any real suspense or fear. The series had already covered escaped psychopaths far more effectively, e.g. "The Colour Of Blood".

If you do come across this, it is still worth watching. However if you have a choice of other "Thriller" installments, opt for them instead.
