What's it about
Twisted Sisters actually has a neat enough plot, as a woman named Jennifer leads a normal and priveleged life, while her twin Sister Norah was horrifically abused by her uncle and gew up with nothing, and Jennifer didn't even know she had a twin! Now that Jennifer is married with Husband and Child, Norah has decided to assume Jennifer's identity and destroy her life.
Is it good movie?
First of all, Twisted Sisters does have some great things going for it. I would like to begin this review by serving up a steaming plate of mad props to Fiona Horsey, the actress who plays both Norah and Jennifer in a dual role. I'm not usually a fan of these types of flick and this one didnt change that opinion, but she did the best she could and actually brought a whole new level of credibility to this bad boy. If you're looking, you'll pick up on several little nuances in her characters.
Another thing that might suit your fancy is the incredible amount of the red stuff you'll find in Twisted Sisters. It flows freely and often, and if you've always wanted to see someone lose their genitals on screen, you might just enjoy this one. It pulls no punches and is absolutely brutal, i'd liken it to an exploitation film from the old days. Norah doesn't like us gentlemen very much, and we get what's coming to us.
The only other complaint I have it that Twisted Sisters is so low budget that I lost interest during a few points of the film and found myself constantly having to go back to it. I'm getting more and more used to DV films, but some of the shots in this one just seemed so amateurish.

The bottom line here is simple, folks. Twisted Sisters actually surprised me, I expected it to be purely a test of my horror resolve, but I was happily wrong. It isn't a great film, but the acting is very good, and the gore is all over the place. It's still a relatively straightforward film that doesn't offer much that's new, but considering what it's aiming for, it succeeds quite well.
