Two acclaimed masters of horror George A. Romero and Dario Argento had different views on the genre, with its own artistic style and cultural traditions. The combination of them together one project — a surprise gift to the viewer. A common thread was found quickly in the overall inspiration by the works of the classic of Edgar Allan PoE. Inspiration — the key word, because the authors do not been doing a literal adaptation, only interpreting the ideas of the stories under itself, placing personal emphasis where is considered necessary.

Duplet horror stories opens "the Truth about that happened Mr. Valdemar". We meet critically ill wife of a rich man, which had entered into the conspiracy with his doctor and his lover at the combination. They intend to Scam, got hold of all of the state, after hypnotizing the patient, weak signing any document. Where will idea if decrepit body ward will step in the brink of death, but slave hypnosis mind will continue to exist?

Many believe that Romero got his signature theme of zombies. It is that's part of it. However, such an approach to the works of the American Director is too narrow, because it is through the genre carried by stupid thoughts often roll in the social dimension applicable to our everyday lives to trigger a response from the viewer. Clearly not a random selection of the story where the rod was based on the terrible, but a fascinating experiment, cleverly filed by the writer of the documentary evidence of the transition of a sick person in a stage of the deceased, which is in a hypnotized state broadcasts about all processes, even when dead. Therefore, Romero's first moves on the screen chronicle of the crime before the end is not oblivious the main catalyst of crime — the money that move all the whole, as flies from the mouths of the characters, and then intently focuses on an involuntary experience, when the crook awakens in their physicians, they find themselves enchanted by the possibility of conversations with the deceased patient. This craving knowing beyond any one living becomes a temporary substitute for the passion for wealth, because of death escape not to pay off. Before death all are equal, no matter what you have had to the Bank or high-speed car, therefore, the character covers a genuine horror to get information from the gave that will one day call all of us.

In its style the film is not such a terrible shot very casually, leisurely Recalling the television production, the in this strong effect of radiant mystery, together with the crooks to be a part of the experiment, gradually catching up hopeless horror, realizing that somewhere beyond life there is another life waiting for each inevitable. A spectacular climax only aggravates this a frightening thought when the Director of traditionally resorted to a faint black twist again indicating the fatalism of life that the money before death are just worthless pieces of paper, flickering on wind the unprincipled cynicism with medical science is not will be the salvation of the inevitable. But and is not all the tools of horror in the hands of a specialist, because it a wise understanding of death is a natural part of the endless path of man, and all the true nightmare is concentrated in the course against the law of the universe, when there is eternal stop in the middle of the road.

The second segment is entitled "the Black cat". Photographer various brutal murders, groggy, begins to experience bouts of rage, at first, pouring out their a black cat, who was picked up by his wife. The specific activity and the irrational craving for violence throws all darkness,

Argento also chose a literary basis, very close to myself, but here you can meet a whole bunch of references to other classic works, in addition to the basis of the story "the Black cat". For example, the name of the main character is Roderick usher, one of the murder, where he takes photographs with absolutely help devilish invention in the form of a huge pendulum, retrovintage the victim in half, and there's a scene from the works of "Berenice" on a young man who is obsessed with perfect white teeth of his sick bride. The Italian Maestro is close to plot the skeleton of the original, but he's interested in the adaptation of the most nightmarish atmosphere. It carries out the attempt to recreate on the screen the ominous aura of magical harmful obsession that grinds people did not less than various bloodthirsty maniacs of the Giallo, where the author has made a name for himself and who gave a courteous nod in the opening credits revealing the yellow color. Hub insidious crime shrouded in the same book the spirit of the source, despite the General feature project to shoot in the prism of modernity, where the charming Gothic simply no space.

Masterfully addressing the flight camera operator and adhering to the Italian specifics of a genre when music a full participant in all events, inseparable sounding catchy tune from Pinot Donadio, the author recreates the thick paranoid atmosphere that nurtures a dark seed inside of the individual, fleeting, but stubbornly nurtured the sprouts of evil to the Prime. Fatalism pervades everything, Recalling a bad dream, when a person receives a terrible omen in the dreams, have all their actions in reality unwittingly sends to bring trouble in life, intuitively going to the said prediction of the abyss, and not away from it. Work by an artist out of someone else's violent death and perverse murders, the unhealthy effect on the mind of the main character authentically played Harvey Keitel, transforming a mysterious cat in the token black maelstrom of the abyss, where you do not should look, otherwise the abyss itself will look in you. Predetermination of the story of the famous story only works in favor of the Director's ideas in order to show chronicling the gradual fall in the pitch darkness of man, gravitating to the remains of another's wickedness that he Excel artistically beautiful to pass on photo.

Overall, the project is far from the status of masterpiece. Perhaps more frustrating that classics book Gothic shifted to these days, therefore, the original charm of the stories as not met, depriving the viewer of charming antiquity. Waiting in vain grotesque bloodthirsty horror the result is unlikely to have the taste, though a master of special effects involved artisan Tom Savigny. Before us are the ideological successors of the immortal creations By trying to evoke a feeling of anxious curiosity from contact with something mysterious, frightening and alluring at the same time. The film is an adaptation set out in your own words two horror stories of the Maestro, where the narrators themselves, Romero and Argento.

Before us, we can say, a tribute to Edgar Allan PoE, two hour stories taken notorious Directors. On my humble eyes, the idea is good, films do not compete with each other, each tells his story, ideas For embodied cheers, there was even a little for yourself after watching.

the look the first — the Truth about that happened Mr. Waldemar — by George A. Romero.

"no I do not will be able to Wake up!".

Waldemar rich man, confined to bed, are on the verge of death. His wife Jessica and her lover, a doctor with the help of hypnosis forced Valdemar to sign and say they need things the purpose to get rich after its death. But so that Waldemar not time dies, and the fact that he dies while in a state of hypnosis, not a couple of greedy portends nothing good.

We all know about great passion Romero to the living dead, here, of course, without isn't done. For the most part "history of Valdemar" is pretty easy, no worry sudden movements in the middle have begin wheezing and moaning otherworldly, and ending is beautiful, though, and seasoned carcass. The first novel can not be called tough, but its atmosphere it all still there, more often it takes is the ending, and not even a visual embodiment, but rather, the idea (for this thank you of course), true to its feed, because if you think about it — this situation is truly horrifying. I already as-that was not good, and so the effect is achieved.

second Opinion — Black cat — by Dario Argento.

"no one Really did evil. only love to evil?".

Roderick usher, a photographer specializing in the filming of the murders. He lives with air creative Annabel. Once Annabelle brings in the house of the black cat, which the usher for some strange reason hated. Family idyll does not last, usher all drinking drinking flies into a rage, the climax comes when he kills Annabel and immured her with black cat the wall.

the Second story — it's crazy intense spectacle, rather unpleasant, but from screen off was impossible. Even more enhances the suspense and depressing that the story tells the story of an ordinary family, almost no interruption from reality. Even more crushes the personality of the main character, is usher, it seems as if he just slowly losing his mind, he no regrets the offense, it tries to Dodge and get away with water. Very hard to watch how then turn to the cats, but in the credits assured that no animal with the filming of any physical and moral suffered — Oh, and on thank you. The atmosphere is very painful — dark, soaked in the violence, the tense creepy. The ending is good, let it not particularly shines with brighter colors, but gives a sense of satisfaction.

"Two evil sight" is quite a good adaptation of the immortal works of Edgar Allan PoE on film, not tedious, not prolonged, interesting and exciting. Only if possible, it is better to watch with a small break between stories, so each will leave its impression, without overlays sensations from one for the other. In each novel there is a spirit removes the Director, but about it's not forgotten.

Two mediocre stories from the masters of horror.

Plot: two novel for the stories of Edgar Allan PoE.

In one unfaithful wife and her lover did not can kill the old one, but a very rich husband.

Second, on the contrary, a delusional husband (Harvey Keitel) walled in his Zheng is with black cat the wall.

The first story made George Romero and the second of Dario Argenta. Both made in retro style, so that they can easily be taken on the picture class 70-ies of honor this film is not doing. He bit stodgy, too old-fashioned, and stories lose all charm when they moved to our time.

The history of Edgar Allan PoE was the measure is mediocre, but he "revived" for its stunning Gothic atmosphere. Here all the charm is missing, but Romero and Argenta all still have tried to bring in movies something. Romero's old zombie, and the Argent sinister black cat.

In General you can look, but only the classics lovers and haters of cats. In the second novel cats as the torment that of wondering how it responded Committee on the protection of animals.
