Due Occhi Diabolici (1990) Two horror segments based on Edgar Allan Poe stories set in and around the city of Pittsburgh. "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar" concerns a cheating wife who is trying to scam her dying husband out of millions by having her doctor/hypnotist lover hypnotize the geezer into signing his dough over to her. The old man dies while under hypnosis and is stuck in the limbo between the here and the hereafter. The door to the physical world is opened and the undead attempt to enter it. "Black Cat" is the story of Rodd Usher, an alcoholic photographer/artist, who descends into madness after he kills a stray cat that his live-in girlfriend Annabelle brings home. One murder leads to another, and the complex cover-ups begin.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Jessica Valdemar: I married a rich, old man. I let him use me, for pleasure and for show. Now I'm going to let him pay me for my services.
  • Policeman: We found blood in the freezer down in the cellar. Det. Grogan: Christ! Rich people... Sick stuff always turns out to be rich people.
Movie Trivia:
  • Dario Argento originally wanted the film to be a collaboration between four directors: himself, George A. Romero, John Carpenter and Wes Craven. Carpenter and Craven pulled out, so Argento and Romero decided to tackle the project as a two-part story, each directing his own segment separately.
  • It was Julie Benz's first acting role and the first feature film she starred in.
  • Dario Argento's daughter, Asia Argento, dubbed many of the female voices into Italian for the Italy release, including Julie Benz's voice.
  • Director Dario Argento originally planned a cable show based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe. George A. Romero had agreed to direct the pilot hour "The Facts in the Case of Mr. Valdemar", Michele Soavi was inked for "The Masque of the Red Death (which had been Romero's original choice) and Richard Stanley was up for "The Cask of Amontillado" (Michael Gambon had been cast as Fortunato and Jonathan Pryce as Montressor). Sadly Romero struck out and only one further episode ("The Black Cat") written and directed by Argento himself was produced. The other scripts ended up on the shelf.
  • The "Black Cat" segment contains several other Edgar Allan Poe tales and character names. Two of the crime scenes recorded by Rod Usher are "The Pit and the Pendulum" and "Berenice"; the Tom Savini character in the latter is made up and costumed to look like Poe himself (who wrote "Berenice" in the first person, about a man who opens the tomb of his cousin and removes her teeth). Poe did, in fact, marry his own cousin, who died at the age of 25. Rod's wife's name is Annabel (ne้ Lee, one supposes); the bartender who returns the cat to him is named Eleonora; and the next-door neighbors are called Pym (first name, no doubt, Arthur Gordon).
