Argento shows up Romero in this two in one picture.

  • Sep 13, 2009

Two Evil Eyes was a historic collaboration between two of the best horror film makers of their day, Dario Argento and George A. Romero. What could have been an awesome event turns into a one sided affair. The end results have Dario Argento showing up his friend and fellow film maker by making a superior film that overshadows the latter's work. The two directors worked on putting two stories from macabre writer Edgar Allen Poe's proses. One film is a tired retread whilst the other is a work of true suspense and black comedy.

I don't think it was a great idea for the two to work on a film like this. Romero's film was pretty lame. The film had little to do with the story and revamping it like the way they did was a terrible idea. But Argento's tale was a superior piece that worked in several other Poe tales and the acting by Harvey Keitel pushed the short well over the top. The Argento short is canceled out by the terrible Romero one. Instead of being a sure fire classic it's just an okay film. Just watch the second tale, The first one is non-essential and you can fast forward it.
