Two separate tales from Edgar Allan Poe are loosely adapted in this horror drama. George Romero's "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar" deals with a wife's evil scheme to seize her husband's money, while Dario Argento's "The Black Cat" concerns a police photographer who turns into a murderer.

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.

    Two Poe stories adapted by two great horror film directors. They're not straight adaptations as the directors have added their own unique touches but they are enjoyable tosh, even if there is a lack of actual Poe dialogue in each.

    Imagine if Romero and Argento got together to adapt a couple of Edgar Allen Poe's tales...well, ta-da! Romero's deals with a body that isn't quite dead, but in a far more original way than usual. And the ending is fucking creepy. Yet it's Argento who rules absolute here. Not only is his direction so accomplished but he also ropes in Keitel and Savini (Poe fans will also notice a plethora of "easter eggs" dotted throughout). And the ending with the kittens out-endings Romero's. Proof absolute that you should always be nice to cats. As great as they both are though, they wouldn't exist if it wasn't for Poe. Unmissable for true horror fans.

    Great little horror film and my favourite Argento film. Heavily criticized on it's release, but much like many horror films of the day, has totally been re-evaluated on it's DVD release. The Black Cat is amazing, with a really strong performance by Keitel, but Romero's story is really good as well and perhaps his most underrated film. Recommended for fans of anthology horror.
