Written by: Dario Argento, Franco Ferrini, Peter Koper, Edgar Allan Poe, George A. Romero
Length: 120 minutes
I don't know if it's because I've been spoiled by really good Amicus features that I found this to be so lacking or rather it's the fault of the movie itself. We have two sixty minute short features put together one of course from Argento and one from Romero, although the second story is better neither really struck me as great. The first one is about a wife who is cheating on her husband with a doctor/hypnotist. Together they plot to make him sign everything over to her so that when he dies they strike it rich. Things don't quite go as planned and they find themselves in quite the mess. The second story is about an artist who goes bonkers around his girlfriend's cat. He ends up killing it, but somehow things seem to get worse. Somehow it doesn't seem to stay dead and it doesn't forget.
