In the age of Aquarius, the Gemini twins share everything: love...men...and murder!! Jacki (TO SIR WITH LOVE's Judy Geeson) and Julian (SATYRICON's Martin Potter) are 20-year-old twins with an unusually close relationship. Their bizarre fantasy world is shattered by the arrival of Clive, a London small-time criminal with a massive gambling debt. As the twins become exposed to the seamy underbelly of the swinging '60s London nightlife, their relationship becomes strained and twisted. When Clive attempts to blackmail Julian, the twins take decisive action in this eerie, unsettling tale where not even the bond between siblings can predict the outcome. Also starring Sir Michael Redgrave and directed by Alan Gibson (DRACULA A.D. 1972), GOODBYE GEMINI is a disturbing look at the relationship between twins...and just how far they will go to protect one another!
-New 16x9 digital high definition transfer (1.78:1), from the original camera negatives.
-Audio commentary with star Judy Geeson and Producer Peter Snell.

The male twin has a sexual penchant as well as a possible sexual past with his sister, which is why this flick is remotely interesting. Martin Potter (Fellini`s 'Satyricon') steals every scene he's in, and is the best reason to see this one. He also has too much involvement with the Alpha male and his seedy clansmen and women, and folks start getting murdered with the twins always being peripherally involved. Are they killers? Are they insane? You'll have to watch for yourself.
This isn't a horror film, per se, more like a British gaillo or murder mystery, but I found it interesting enough, although a bit dated, as we've been desensitized thru the years since its release. Certainly deserving of a rental, but if you're not a fan of the late 60`s scene, probably a drag, man, a real drag.
First i want to say thank you to Scorpion Releasing for even releasing an oddball movie like this, and the color matching dvd case was way cool, with that said , the movie itself is not very good. Here and there i could see promises of what i thought the movie was gonna be ,judging only from the trailer i saw on another Scorpion release. My days of buying on a whim are slowly coming to a close as i can't afford to take a chance on a movie anymore since more times than not they turn out to be just "ok" at best movies like Goodbye Gemini.Expected alot more camp concerning the drag performers, and i surely didn't expect the lead to get gang raped by them , nothing cute , quirky , or camp about that. So in the end i was left with an emptiness, and not because of the end of the movie, just because this movie could have been so much more .
I won't spoil for you the plot of Gemini, anyone who remembers the movie first time round will know what to expect, but for those of you, like-myself, new to this film will get more out of not being told what to expect, but I can assure 1960's/70's genre fans will find this a worthwhile time-machine trip which for me would have been my year of birth.
New DVD outfit: Scorpion Releasing have done a fine job of bringing this film back from cinema obscurity and should be congratulated for what in the most part is a handsome anamorphic transfer of this low-budget, but rather classy cult curio. Original Mono soundtrack is strong without any annoying pops or hissing. A theatrical trailer coupled with a commentary track is provided which features star Geeson and producer Peter Snell whom whilst interesting to listen to provide scant insight due to their lapsed memories of the project, although Mr Snell is keen to point out his up-coming production of Robin Hardy's: The Wicker Tree. I'm sure we are all looking forward to that.
If you are a fan of 70's British films such as- Mumsy Nanny Sonny and Girly The Fiend; Psychomania; Horror Hospital; Hammer films; The Twisted Nerve; Pete Walker's movies; Performance; The Wicker Man; The Secrets OF Sex, or any other quintessential British horror/art/cult movies of this period then I urge you to take the plunge and return to 1969
