What I knew going into this film was that it had beautiful DVD art, a memorable title, and an intriguing summary. What I didn’t know is that EYES WITHOUT A FACE is considered a classic in horror cinema. So it came as a shock when events went from creepy to, well, horrifying, and I loved every minute of it. Even the minutes that I had to watch through splayed fingers (something I rarely do). In the film, a plastic surgeon is obsessed with restoring his daughter’s once beautiful face, now disfigured from a car accident that he caused. He’ll go to any lengths to make things right, no matter how monstrous. In the meantime, his childish daughter floats about the isolated house in a white mask, one of the film’s many arresting images that make it just as beautiful as it is disturbing. It all leads to a satisfying ending and a new concept of what a horror film can look like.
