A ruthless racketeer (Jack Taylor) who uses his nightclub as a front for all kinds of crime suffers a drastic reversal of fortune after sending an innocent man to the guillotine for a crime he himself committed. The executed man donated his eyes after he died and now the club is being watched ...coincidence?
Closer to film noir than giallo, TWO EYES definitely had potential but the lack of suspense, scares, kills, or coherence pretty much made it a missed opportunity. Be that as it may, the movie was just weird enough to keep me watching. In a pre-credit sequence, the prisoner (an uncredited Fabio Testi) takes his trumpet with him to the guillotine which, of course, is why we're forced to hear it in the jazzy score for the rest of the film. There's also an adagio dance at the club featuring a belly dancer getting whipped by a man in a cat mask and later on, Taylor himself falls under the lash. TWO EYES TO KILL isn't inept, exactly, but, like Fabio, it still blows.
