5.0 out of 5 stars Poetry in 'horrific' motion January 28, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
Georges Franju might be the most underrated director of French cinema history that I know of. His films were marveled at by no less than both Jean Cocteau and Jean Luc-Goddard. As far as *Horror Cinema* goes, "Eyes Without A Face" AKA "Les Yeux Sans Visage" might be the most poetic, eerie film ever lensed. The haunting portrait of Christiane, masked, faceless, and disfigured since an earlier car accident, combined with the obsession of her brilliant father-surgeon, determined to find and graft a 'new' face for her, will leave horrific impressions of intense beauty that will not easily be forgotten. A mixture of fantasy and realism that combines for a movie that far surpasses today's "horror story" standards. Check it out if you're not looking to see a typical 90's "run-of-the-mill" slasher film, AND if you have the patience and understanding to notice the subleties of poetry-in-motion when it surfaces in a genre outside of it's normal influence.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the Great Horror Films March 24, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Saw this film as a kid (about 14yrs.old), called Horror Chamberof Dr. Faustus, dubbed. Loved it. Saw the French version recently.Like it even more, scarier now than as a kid. Saw it with a friend and she was scared, too, and also loved it. Almost like a cross between Hitchcock & Cocteau, it shows the minimum amount of gore with the maximum effect. Head and shoulders over the stuff that passes as horror now, a real jewel.
