(br) wrote: Anthology movies were briefly popular within horror circles in the early Seventies and had an even briefer renaissance in the mid Eighties but by the time this film turned up the genre (much like the Italian horror industry) was pretty much dead and buried.On paper it sounds like a winner - pair up George A. Romero and Dario Argento to lens a duo of tales based on the works of Edgar Allen Poe. What could go wrong?What we get is a couple of over long TV-style dramas, complete with hammy 80s performances (and lots of bi hair and shoulder pads.) Neither director manages to eek out much in the way of pure horror or shocks and it's a sign that both were in terminal creative decline by this period.Romero is up first with a typical 'Twilight Zone' style tale of a scheming gold-digger who, with the help of her husbands doctor (who doubles as her lover), is using hypnosis to make her dying husband sign all his wealth over to the couple. Unfortunately for them he dies whilst under hypnosis and they discover that in that state he isn't going to stay dead for very long.This tale plods along and has the feeling of a bad day at the Dynasty office as it builds up to it's obvious climax. We do get to see what Romero does best - some shamboling zombie stuff, but it's all too brief and we could have got there much quicker.Argento fares better in his 'Black Cat' tale that at least includes a modicum of gore and mayhem. Harvey Keitel turns up as a photographer specialising in pictures of murder victims (he's obviously arty as he wears a ludicrous beret for most of it). He gradually unravels thanks to the influence of a black cat which may or may not have supernatural powers, and eventually goes on a bit of a killing spree. In between we get some mutilation tableaus and a very odd dream sequence involving mediaeval impalement but again this drags itself out way too long for the scant plot to cope with. But there's still a lot of Eighties styling to laugh at.So with both stories coming in at around an hour the film really plods along and serves only to show how far of their game the two directors were falling by this point.An oddity of it's time but little more.

(ca) wrote: Decent WW II movie written by the same guy who created the "Combat" series. The story is about a small squad asked to hold a position against superior German forces, but the real interest here is the cast which includes Steve McQueen (as another surly loner), James Coburn, Bobby Darin, Fess Parker, Nick Adams, Harry Guardino and making his motion picture debut as a soldier lost on his way to deliver typewriters, Bob Newhart. Newhart gets to do one of his phone routines as he tries to trick the Germans into thinking they have more men then they do. Directed by Don Siegel, who delivers an entertaining war film. The film ends abruptly because reportedly they ran out of money to film it.
