      Kevin Thomas Los Angeles Times 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. Oct 8, 2018 Full Review Ed Gonzalez Slant Magazine It was a match made in hell, a dream realized for many horror fans. Rated: 3.5/4 Dec 22, 2001 Full Review Richard Harrington Washington Post 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. Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Kevin Carr Fat Guys at the Movies A grisly and graphic anthology horror that cuts itself off with too few stories in its collection. Rated: 2.5/4 Mar 15, 2024 Full Review Gayle Sequeira BFI Two masterful horror directors spin Poe’s tales into an anthology of contemporary narratives that center men attempting to get away with murder. Mar 4, 2024 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy The word on the street -- Rue Morgue or otherwise -- is that the Argento segment far outshines the Romero tale, but I found them of comparable quality. Rated: 2.5/4 Dec 26, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Brad P Disjointed and held together by a flimsy concept, Two Evil Eyes is definitely worth watching for the Argento segment. Romero's segment is pretty average, but average Romero is still very good. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/07/23 Full Review jon c Horror meisters Dario Argento and the late George A. Romero collaborate to tell two tales of evil Based on the successful suspenseful stories by Edgar Allan Poe The first story focuses on a 40-year old widow trying to gain access to her husband's funds through her attorney Her husband is on life support and she's having an affair with someone else Both of them plan to swindle the old man out of his fortune even commit murder But there's something supernatural involved The second story is an adaptation of the Black Cat with a feline tied to witchcraft Adrienne Barbeau, Tom Atkins, and Harvey Keitel are the only big name actors I know here As far as the movie by these two horror legend directors the first story is better The second story takes a lot of time to get to the horrificness The first segment had a lot more momentum to it being executed and gives viewers enough horror elements, more of a focused vision The second segment needed to land its footing better Still they do build enough suspense for the actors to work with I've seen better horror anthologies trust me but Argento and Romero show they can collaborate together Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review marco b One story directed by Dario Argento and one by George Romero. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Two masters at play with Poe. Adrienne Berbeau and dodgy ex go after her dying husbands money in Romero's first. It doesn't quite cut it - smacks a little of grown up TV Movie, albeit twisted and dark. But... Argento's is just glorious! Touches of giallo and Keitel being a brute in a beret; changes in time, switched viewpoints, twisted dream sequences, all the Poe! Stunning imagery, and that weird jazz score. Insane, but brilliant! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Two evil eyes is the best horror anthology film since creepshow. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member It's a macabre funhouse horror film it's really fun, creepy, horrific and great cast and again Tom Savini has done it again with his awesome gore splatter FX. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/03/21 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
