Got a dvd-r of this a couple of months ago and I enjoyed it immensely, it's one of those Brit Films with a unique atmosphere that you can't pin down. It's a really strange little thriller/black comedy to be sure but it's well worth watching.

Redemption/Jezebel were supposedly putting it out but it's all gone cold of late and the word on the street is that it's not going to happen.

I've seen the Salvation schedule and it goes through to October/November, and there's no mention of it.

This has now been completely taken off the schedule by Redemption. What a bunch of tossers they are...     >:(

Just got a watchable copy of this from a Swedish (?) VHS.






Really looking forward to finally seeing this one.

Jonny, I have originals of the American and Dutch video releases. Both are much nicer looking than your screen caps above.

The other title Redemption were going to release alongside GIRLY was Alan Gibson's GOODBYE GEMINI (1970). I also have the American and Dutch video releases of this one too. The US title is TWINSANITY.

What about WHAT BECAME OF JACK AND JILL?  I heard this was somewhat similar or related to GIRLY.

That is one bizarre and twisted movie. Quite nasty - and very dark. Have you seen it? It stars Vanessa Howard, who was also in GIRLY - other than that they're not really related. It's a Twentieth Century-Fox Film and I very much doubt they'll be issuing this one any time soon. I got a copy of a guy in the US who transferred his original 16mm print to video.

That's better! An upgrade arrived today in the form of a copy from the NTSC VHS, titled 'Girly'
