Boring and cheap, but definitely weird to say the least.

This is my first Cheezy Flicks Entertainment DVD, so I really wasn't sure what the quality would be like, but, in general, I found it to be better than expected.

The walking deadman from Pompei is very realistic...good storyline and good acting.

What can be said about Curse of the Faceless Man (1958) that hasn't already been said? Apparently a lot, since I be the first to review it on the Amazon website...written by Jerome Bixby (It! The Terror from Beyond Space, Fantastic Voyage) and directed by schlockmeister extraordinaire Edward L. Cahn (The She-Creature, Dragstrip Girl, Invasion of the Saucer Men), the film stars Richard Anderson, whom most in my generation would recognize as Oscar Goldman from the mid 70s television series "The Six Million Dollar Man" (you're doing that bionic sound effect in your head right now, aren't you? Me too...). Also appearing is Elaine Edwards (Guns, Girls, and Gangsters, The Bat), Adele Mara (Sands of Iwo Jima, The Black Whip), Luis Van Rooten (The Big Clock, Boston Blackie's Chinese Venture), Felix Locher (Hell Ship Mutiny, Frankenstein's Daughter), Jan Arvan (The Sign of Zorro, The Poseidon Adventure), and Gar Moore (Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer, Boris Karloff).

As the movie begins we see a miniature volcano spewing forth its molten, steamy goodness over a miniature city, supposedly representing a reenactment of Mount Vesuvius destroying the city of Pompeii in 79 A.D., according to the narrator...well, that was kinda fun...now we're in the present, and we see some Giuseppe rooting around on an excavation site. He uncovers a golden jewel box along with man-sized, man shaped, white stone figure (actually, it looks like a man covered in lumpy, crusty gravy). Within the jewel box are some shiny trinkets, along with a bronze medallion sporting a curse of sorts. The find is taken to the museum (not before someone dies mysteriously), run by Dr. Carlo Fiorillo (Rooten) and his hotchie mama daughter Maria (Mara). Dr. Fiorillo calls in his friend, Oscar Goldman ...er, I mean Dr.

Another one of those old school horror flicks I managed to miss as a kid from Vailsburg. Actually learned the name of this classic via a Forbidden Planet reunion clip I saw that included Richard Anderson. Learning from the movie's description that it was released in 1958, the "faceless man" came from the Pompeii ruins, and having seen the Pompeii Exhibit twice, why wouldn't I sign up for a 48 hour AIV rental for $2.99?!

Granted, it isn't a movie for everyone, and I really don't see how it can be judged by "today's" so-called horror standards, but I enjoyed Faceless from start to finish. If you enjoy old school horror (you know who you are) like I, check this out. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

I'm going to watch this again as I have still have a couple of hours left in my rental time.

I saw this movie on TNT's "100% Weird" about a year ago, and if I wouldn't have had a bad case of insomnia, it would have put me to sleep very fast. Boring and cheap, but definitely weird to say the least.

It's almost impossible to describe the effects of this film on one's mind. It is so mind numbing it becomes hard to tell whats going on. I guess it had something to do with a curse and some buried guy, and it just turns into a big mess. This probably would be your best choice for weird viewing entertainment.
