Critic Reviews for Two Evil Eyes
It is amazing what Argento has been able to do in his 65-minute "The Black Cat," which is the more ingenious--and gory--of the two parts.
But where Romero goes for the cheap, linear approach, Argento's storytelling is painfully poetic, with ever-shifting points of view and asides... There's a madness in Argento's method and it's always appropriate.
All in all, Two Evil Eyes is one evil eye with perfect vision. The other eye has a cataract.
While far from the worst adaptation of Poe's work... Two Evil Eyes breaks no new ground.
Two Evil Eyes is a flawed project. Romero's segment doesn't pull its own weight. While it is creepy in spots, the majority of the story is overlong and ho-hum in the execution.
Playing out like a mediocre episode of Tales From The Crypt, it's slow, largely uneventful and not particularly exciting when something does happen... The Black Cat is a much more solid film, with a considerably better screenplay and some excellent acting
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.
Plays well off of each director's strengths and weaknesses. Disturbingly brilliant.
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!
