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

70 MORE Underappreciated Horror Movies (70 movies items)

"A doctor obsessively(and criminally) tries to assuage his guilt for his role in his daughter's car accident by trying to fix her disfigurement much to her increasing dismay and madness. A groundbreaking and controversial film upon its release, Eyes Without A Face pushed boundaries of the visceral and strange. Though tame by today's standards, the pervasive mood and somber atmosphere make it a notable (if not downright strangely beautiful) standout. "

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"Robin Wood, that great analyzer of screen frissons, once noted that “terrible buildings” were the recurring theme in the films of Georges Franju, and perhaps none is more terrible than the mansion-clinic presided over by Prof. Genessier (Pierre Brasseur) in the French surrealist’s masterpiece Eyes Without a Face. As the surgeon operates on captive young women in hopes of restoring the face of his disfigured daughter Christiane (Edith Scob), an unforgettable portrait of subverted normalcy e"

" Christiane Génessier, the disfigured daddy's girl “When I look in a mirror, I feel like I’m looking at someone that looks like me, but seems to come from the beyond.” Imagine being so deformed that you are completely dissociated from the nauseating physical appearance that has been forced on you after a brutal accident. Imagine being so ugly that your plastic surgeon father kills women and tries to implant their sliced facial skin onto your butchered own out of guilt and pity. *inse"
