The most terrifying film I've ever seen, bar none. Those familiar with the film will know that it is not just the shocking moments of surgical gore and mutilation that provides terror, but the long, arduous and uneasy wait for that mask to be lifted from 'the face' of that girl, painfully frail beneath her trench coat. But perhaps the most uncomfortable things of all are each moral dilemma that th... read more

I just realized how naive I really am. I haven't seen much of pre-70's horror, bar the Universal ones, and I have only one image of them: That they're minimalistic, completely devoid of any blood/gore and totally suspense-ish. Well, Eyes Without a Face proved me wrong. Dead wrong. This film is a bloody, and sympathetic, real fairy-tale in motion. The thing about old films are that they're brutally... read more

A surgeon, feeling guilty over his daughter's facial disfigurement--so horrible that she wears a mask--in an accident for which he was responsible, uses his assistant to kidnap young women. He attempts, without success, to transfer their faces to his daughter.

""The future, Madame, is something we should have started on a long time ago." This is one of those few films that really, truly bothers me on so many levels. I've always said that the best horror is something that comes from a more emotional place and this film is a prime example of my theory in action. Director, Georges Franju injects the film with a sorrowful atmosphere that often recalls the works of Edgar Allen Poe and filmmaker, Jean Cocteau, and most obviously, German Expressionism. This"

Movie Diary 2013 (403 movies items)

"1.12. Päätin jälkikäteen pudottaa arvosanaa, koska vaikka Edith Scobin haahuilut ovatkin hämmästyttävää seurattavaa, muuhun elokuvaan sisältyy yllättävän tavanomaista rikoksen selvittämistä. Brutaaleihin naamanleikkelyihin nähden turhan eriparista materiaalia omaan makuuni. Toisaalta saatan nyt rokottaa turhan ankarasti siksi, että olen muuten katsonut laatuelokuvia viime aikoina."

"30.10. DVD, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Georges Franju Some nice music by Maurice Jarre and some eerie beauty about every scene Edith Scob is featured in but other than that it's yet another classic film whose status I'm honestly pretty puzzled about. Probably influential but I found it rather dull as it wasn't very extraordinary technically or story-wise. The skin transplant scene was surprisingly graphic for its time, though. "

"10.19 It's hard to choose which is way cooler, this movie or that Billy Idol song. Georges Franju's masterpiece horror, like that 80s pop-punk song, is a signature era piece, they don't make them like these anymore. "

Freaky Plastic Surgery On Film By Ashley Clark (10 movies items)

" Set way out in the French countryside, Franju’s chilly classic follows the attempts of a brilliant, obsessive doctor (Pierre Brasseur) attempting radical plastic surgery to restore the beauty of his daughter’s mangled face—but at what price? Shocking and beautiful, Eyes Without a Face is a hugely influential hybrid of horror and psychological thriller. "

Movies the giraffe watched: June 2013 (14 movies items)

"First viewing - June 3rd An excellent film, but one I wasn't as in the mood for as I thought I was...or maybe I just let my expectations get in the way for once. Everything is handled well enough, and there's that one scene that's so Great it's worthy of acclaim (especially for the time), but overall the film fell short of crossing that line of greatness for me. Fortunately I got this on DVD as a gift from Xanadon't, so I'll be able to watch it again to see if it earns a higher rating next time"

"This is an early French chiller that set a benchmark in horror film making with its unflinching depiction of horrific acts of surgery. It's a very impressive, classy picture with a dark sinister atmosphere that has inspired many later horror movies. Brilliant stuff."
