Blu-ray Release: Two Evil Eyes

Blu-ray Release Date: Oct. 29, 2019
Price: Blu-ray $35.49
Studio: Blue Underground/MVD

Two masters of modern horror—Dario Argento (The Bird With the Crystal Plumage) and the late George Romero (Day of the Dead)—direct a pair of shockers inspired by the tales of Edgar Allan Poe in the 1990 horror film Two Evil Eyes, available now as part of a killer special edition from Blue Underground.

In Romero’s The Facts In The Case Of Mr. Valdemar, a conniving wife (Adrienne Barbeau, 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, Taxi Driver) 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?

The horrific creation also features grisly makeup effects by  gore artiste extraordinaire Tom Savini (Maniac).

Blue Underground’s three-disc edition features of Two Evil Eyes features a new 4K restoration from the film’s original camera negative, along with a slew of exclusive and archival extras.
