Judge Gordon Sullivan, DVD Verdict--The Curse of the Faceless Man is a B-movie in the truest sense of the word. Made on the cheap to screen with another feature (supposedly It! The Terror From Beyond Space), Curse is a 66-minute blast of so-so effects, random stock footage, bizarre voice-over, and sketchy acting. This is the kind of film that appeared in a few drive-in theaters, amused necking teens, and was banished to the realms of Saturday afternoon television.

Those willing to look beyond the film's obvious faults--the less-than-stellar plot, acting, and effects--will find a document of another era, a scant thirteen years after we dropped the bomb, a culture still trying to understand its relationship to history now that we possessed the power to eradicate history. It's probably a bit much to lay all that on a film like Curse, but the film is undeniably a product of its time. In the same way that it deals with issues (like history) that are very serious, the film can't help but be a part of cinematic history at the time, when these B-movies were needed to fill out double and triple bills. It's easy to see how fans could get nostalgic about an era that seems so much simpler. Even the film's faults seem more charming (or perhaps laughable) today than our own box office flops (if only because Curse only wastes 66 minutes of the viewer's time instead of 100). Although no one was convinced they were making Shakespeare, everyone involved is committed to the film, and given the constraints of time and budget, the film displays strong technical competence.

Despite the film's history, it's easy to get caught up in the flaws as well. Those looking for anything like today's level of polish and professionalism from The Curse of the Faceless Man will be disappointed.

Let me cut to the chase: if you like this film, if you want this film, buy the version from Cheezy Flicks. It's mastered from the laser disc, has chapters and all the standard dvd features. Also, this is a standard silver disc NOT A DVD-R, like the MGM release. I wouuld take one half star off for the cover, one thing the MGM version has in its favor. The Cheezy Flicks version is anywhere from $10 TO $14 cheaper, depending on where you buy it. It can be had directly thru their website as well. In any event, I'm glad I found this: I hadn't seen it in years and it's a great little flick.

MGM Limited has come across with a wonderful B movie staple of Chiller Theatre Sixties television- Director Edward L Cahn's 'CURSE OF THE FACELESS MAN'- 1957, one of the more unusual Mummy films released up to that period. We Horror fans were already introduced to the ancient love connections of Boris Karloff's IM-HO-TEP and Princess Anck-es-en-Amon and Lon Chaney Jr.s KHARIS and his beloved Princess Ananka. Now we meet Quintillus Aurelius, an Etruscan slave who is woken up after an excavation in Pompeii seeking his beloved Roman princess Lucilla Amorena who is now reincarnated in the body of artist Tina Enright. The film is the product of Producer Robert E Kent who along with Director Cahn released many Horror/Sci-Fi B's throughout the fifties. Cahn has a very uneven career in this genre blending the excellent (IT-THE TERROR FROM BEYOND SPACE:1956) with the ludicrous (VOODOO WOMAN:1958). This film emerges as one of his best as the story moves at a great clip telling its story with the help of actor Morris Ankrum's narration and Kenneth Peach's beautiful ciarascuro black and white photograpy. It also helps that the atmosphere is enhanced with an excellent music score by Gerard Fried which lingers in the mind long after the film is over. The screenplay is by the underrated short story writer Jerome Bixby who also scribed Director Cahn's 'IT- THE TERROR FROM BEYOND SPACE'. The cast is quite good with the beautiful Adele Mara who fans may remember as the tragic airline stewardess sucked out of the door of Robert Ryan's airplane in Director John Farrow's excellent 'BACK FROM ETERNITY'-1956, Felix Locher who also appeared as the elderly scientist in Director Richard Cunha's fun guilty pleasure 'FRANKENSTEIN'S DAUGHTER'-1958, and Elaine Edwards as the artist/princess.Read more ›

Good B quality 50's horror film. I used to watch this on Saturdays in the 70's when it was played on Creature Features or Chiller Theater on television in the NYC area. A batch of archaeologists end up with more than they bargained for when an Etruscan gladiator, killed during the Vesuvius eruption, comes back to plaster life looking for his reincarnated sweetie. Understandably she is not interested in her crusty suitor. I got the MGM Limited Edition DVD-R release which is better quality than the Cheezy Flicks DVD release. Recommended for fans of the genre.

I remember when I was younger, there was a TV show called "Creature Feature", and this picture was one of the movies that was played every once in a while. I just loved this movie! I know it is no Oscar winner, and in rewatching this movie, yes it is slow, but I still enjoy the love story, and as I said before - Brings Back Memories!!!

If you like the fifties horror, the one is just up your alley. The picture is crisp and the sound is good. I dont remember ever seeing it before. I really enjoyed it. If you are not a fan of old TERRIBLE horror movies, forget this one. I really enjoyed it. All it needed was popcorn and a sound box coming threw the car window.
