Horror geniuses George Romero and Dario Argento combine forces in this diabolical double feature of doom!
In the first 1-hour installment, "The Facts in the Case of Mr. Valdemar" Romero tells a tale of murder and adultery when Jessica Valdemar has her husband's doctor (and her lover) forge documents to leave all his assets to her, as Mr. Valdemar only has three weeks left to live. It only seems reasonable, right? As she states to their lawyer, "I was a flight attendant that Ernie brought home off the redeye to the shock and dismay of you and everyone else. I married a rich, old man. I let him use me for pleasure and for show; and now I'm going to let him pay me for my services."

The second installment, entitled "The Black Cat" was much more gruesome to watch. The major issue I have with Argento's work is that it is woman-oriented, for better or for worse. You want to root for the women when they stick up for themselves (or each other) but then your spirit is crushed as they die horrible deaths and you are reminded of the sick injustices in the world.
