EYES WITHOUT A FACE
LES YEUX SANS VISAGE PG13
Advisory: Some disturbing scenesDirector: Georges Franju
Genre: Horror
Year: 1960
Duration: 90 minLanguage: French with English subtitles

At his secluded chateau in the French countryside, a brilliant, obsessive doctor (Pierre Brasseur) attempts a radical plastic surgery to restore the beauty of his daughter’s disfigured face—at a horrifying price.

Directed by the supremely talented Georges Franju, is rare in horror cinema for its odd mixture of the ghastly and the lyrical, and it has been a major influence on the genre in the decades since its release. There are images here—of terror, of gore, of inexplicable beauty—that once seen are never forgotten.
