All good things come to he who waits Dec 3 2009
By Annoymous - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Filmed around 1969 in post Antonioni's (Blowup) Swinging London we have here the tale of brother and sister twins, brought to screen-life by Martin Potter (Fellini Satyricon) and Judy Geeson (10 Rillington Place) along with a sterling British cast including Michael Redgrave, Freddie Jones, Mike Pratt and Peter Jeffrey providing characteristically able support. Directed with a sense of ambiguous poignancy by Alan Gibson, who fans of 70's horror will recall from Crescendo, Dracula A.D. 1972 and The Satanic Rites Of Dracula. Goodbye Gemini benefits greatly for having Geoffrey Unsworth responsible for the cinematography, which one or two people may remember him as the D.P on a little known film- 2001: A Space Odyssey. Further aided by some sumptuous art-direction, imbuing the picture with a contemporary look which when viewed today does not befall other more dated looking examples of films made from this era.

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

Twin-sanity revisited... April 10 2010
By 4-Legged Defender - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Twins with an ambiguous past arrive on the late 60`s swinging London underground scene (something I have a weakness for, and plays an important role in determining whether you'll enjoy this film or not) and get caught up with a dubious clan of characters, one of whom has an unpaid gambling debt. He's trying to maintain a low profile while trying to shag the female twin and play Alpha male at the mod scenes and, of course, isn't successful at either.

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.
WScorpion Releasing delivers an obscure thriller. Dec 4 2013

Unusual thriller about twins who aren't as sane as they make themselves out to be. Nice little thriller that finally gets a great DVD release thanks to Scorpion Releasing.
Yet another wrong aspect ratio. June 7 2013
By Pygar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Movies made before the 16x9 (1.77:1) tv's came out are either 1.33:1, 1.66:1 (europe) 1.85:1 or 2.35:1.
The 16x9 aspect is a compromize between the standard movie film formats.
This film being a 1970 european made film is obviously 1.66:1. This is evident in two ways. First, look at the studio logo at the beginning. Turn up the brightness and you can see the outline of the original film frame. Also there is the fact that the tops of the heads are cut off in the shots. If you were to find a full screen vhs you would not miss the top an bottom, but the sides would be probly cut. Too bad for Judy fans.
I don't know why they couldn't release it like countess dracula in the proper 1.66:1.
The only "practical" reason I could think of for doing this type of thing would be the fact that with black on the sides, you would get burn it with a plasma tv.
Personaly, plasma tv's are a bad design. They are not needed since lcd's and led tv's have gotten so much faster on the response time. I watch plenty of sports and fast action on my LCD and I see no bluring or lag.....

( Warning Spoilers)
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 .
