The Eyes Without A Face (Les Yeux Sans Visage)

BBBB.5

(out of 5)


Georges Franju’s horror classic is an influential precursor to Face/Off. After a young woman damages her face in an auto accident (with no harm done to her eyes), her mad scientist father (good coincidence!) fashions her a mask until he can find another way to help her. He and his faithful assistant () kidnap young women from the nearby town and surgically remove their faces in order to try and put them on the young girl’s. Creepy imagery and a fantastic climax are a plus in this chilling film.
