Critic Reviews for Two Evil Eyes
I wasn't too surprised to find that I liked both parts of this film, regardless of the negative buzz.
It's a tough call as to which director's episode is lamer.
You can't go too wrong with these directors. Maybe just a little bit wrong, but it's still good.
Audience Reviews for Two Evil Eyes
A great double feature from two of the greatest horror directors. The stories are simple yet very enjoyable. Harvey Keitel sure seemed to have a fun time killing cats and making life-size duplicates of his girlfriend. The other story was almost too perfect for Romero, zombie husbands. I felt that these two stories were a great homage to Edgar Allen Poe as well as a unique type of horror.More
We have an anthology of two Edgar Allen Poe tales, directed by famous Italian horror maestros.
Story #1, directed by George A. Romero, tells of an undead husband getting revenge on his wife (Adrian Barbeau). Somewhat boring. Nothing too gorey or special here.
Story #2, directed by Dario Argento, is about a photographer (Harvey Kietel) killing his girlfriend's black cat, and then being haunted by the ghost of it. Gore here. There are some shock moments which I liked. Poor kitty though!
