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

Since I want to watch two specific things with kind of similar premises, I decided to first watch the most famous surgeon thriller I know of, “La piel que habito”, which led me to find out about and watch every kind of similar title as well, and since I’ve got some things to say about them, I’m here, starting with the one movie that’s assumed to have started it all.

“Since I want to watch two specific things with kind of similar premises, I decided to first watch the most famous surgeon thriller I know of, “La piel que habito”, which led me to find out about and watch every kind of similar title as well, and since I’ve got some things to say about them, I’m here, starting with the one movie that’s assumed to have started it all.

In terms of production, I guess it’s pretty good for its time, at no point I felt like the production was cheap and low budget, and the backgrounds add a lot to the sort of gothic atmosphere it was going for, the special effects are quite good for its time as well, noticeable in the transformation scenes, the expressionless mask that the main girl uses it’s good, mysterious and a bit creepy as well.

Movies I Watched in June 2021 (31 movies items)

" Date: 6/25/2021 Viewed: HBO Max Re-watch Note: Eyes Without a Face is still a great classic movie in my opinion. It has a very sad and dark story about a woman who has her face ruined from a car crash and has to live her life with a new face. You really feel bad for Édith Scob's character and the stuff that she has to go through. Everyone did a great job with their performances, and Pierre Brasseur is amazing as Doctor Génessier in my opinion. Doctor Génessier has a Doctor Frankenstein v"

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. "

"Kauhu on usein kuivaa. Tällaisessa genrensä varhaisessa avainteoksessa on toki elementit paikallaan kuin lautakehikko talorakennustyömaalla, marraskuun harmaassa valossa, mutta itse talo pintoineen ja sisusteineen puuttuu. Näin nämä asiat koen. Tohtori riipii sieppaamiltaan tytöiltä kasvot päästä ja sovittelee niitä kasvottomalle tyttärelleen. Ihana Alida Valli avustaa. Tunnelma ei tihenny kun tietää mitä käy. Tohtori ei kiinnosta koska se on perseestä. Poliisit ei kiinnosta"
