This Halloween, Prepare to Stare at Your Television Screen With TWO EVIL EYES!

Cover Art for Blue Underground's Limited Edition Blu-ray of TWO EVIL EYES.

TWO EVIL EYES is a film that I must revisit in the near future, because I was not a huge fan of it during my initial viewing so many years ago. On paper, it's a movie that I should love with every ounce of my being - Based (loosely) upon the works of Edgar Allen Poe, TWO EVIL EYES was directed by George A. Romero and Dario Argento, scored by Pino Donaggio, features effects by Tom Savini, and stars Adrienne Barbeau (one of my pre-teen celebrity crushes)! And yet I never had the urge to watch it again... until now!

At the end of October, Blue Underground is unleashing their 3-Disc Limited Edition, which promises a 4K restoration of the film, tons of new special features, and a CD of the film's soundtrack! Want to learn more? Then keep on reading Vault Dwellers!

Synopsis: The masters of modern horror – George Romero and Dario Argento – bring you an unprecedented pair of shockers inspired by the tales of Edgar Allan Poe.

In Romero's The Facts in the Case of Mr. Valdemar, a conniving wife (Adrienne Barbeau - ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, CREEPSHOW, THE FOG) and her lover use a hypnotic trance to embezzle a fortune from her dying husband, only to receive some chilling surprises from beyond the grave. Then in Argento's The Black Cat, a deranged crime scene photographer (Harvey Keitel - RESERVOIR DOGS) is driven to brutal acts of madness and murder by his girlfriend's new pet. But will this cunning feline deliver a final sickening twist of its own?

Martin Balsam (PSYCHO), E.G. Marshall (CREEPSHOW), John Amos (THE BEASTMASTER) and Tom Atkins (NIGHT OF THE CREEPS) co-star in this wild horror hit that also features grisly makeup effects by Tom Savini (MANIAC)!
