In director Georges Franju’s poetically chilling masterpiece of surreal French frights, a brilliant plastic surgeon goes to horrifying extremes to give his disfigured daughter a new face. With beautiful bodies piling up around Paris and the police getting ever closer, the doctor will learn the ultimate price of his twisted obsessions.

“Georges Franju’s monstrous masterpiece delivers horror sans face but with a huge heart.” – Emma Simmonds, Little White Lies

“Franju constructs an elegant visual work; here is a horror movie in which the shrieks are not by the characters but by the images.” – Roger Ebert

“Like a nightmare that never ends, this is a vision of madness, loneliness and, yes, horror that, once seen, demands to be viewed over and over again. It is that haunting, and that good.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
