Dead eyes of London ( visu )
3 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 45 libraries worldwide
When movie audiences caught this double bill in the mid-'60s, they were doubtless unaware that they were witnessing remarkable entries in the Italian gothic and German "krimi" genres. Based on a story by the legendary Edgar Wallace, "Dead Eyes of London" is filled with stylistic flourishes which would influence such directors as Dario Argento. Klaus Kinski stars in this chilling yarn about a series of perplexing murders involving wealthy, middle-aged men and a sinister sect of blind London residents with a grisly secret. Scotland Yard is baffled, but soon the ghastly truth is revealed! Then scream legend Barbara Steele (Black Sunday) stars in The Ghost, a marvelous, atmospheric shocker from acclaimed director Riccardo Freda (The Horrible Dr. Hichcock). Stuck in an unhappy marriage with a wheelchair-bound, occult-worshipping husband, Margaret begins an affair with the handsome family doctor and concocts a murderous scheme that turns into full-blown terror!
