Movie Summary
French director Georges Franjus Eyes Without a Face (Les Yeux Sans Visage) is an unsettling, sometimes poetic horror film. Pierre Brasseur plays a brilliant plastic surgeon, Prof. Genessier, who has vowed to restore the face of his daughter, Christiane (Edith Scob), who was mutilated in an automobile accident. With the help of his assistant (Alida Valli), he kidnaps young women, surgically removes their facial features, and attempts to graft their beauty onto his daughters hideous countenance. This naturally has an adverse effect on the donors, some of whom commit suicide rather than go through life faceless. Franjus haunting, muted handling of basic horror material is what lifts Eyes Without a Face out of the ordinary and into the realm of near-classic. When the film failed to draw crowds under its original title, however, the distributors decided to exploit it as a two-bit scare flick with the new title The Horror Chamber of Dr. Faustus. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
