Movie Pick- Les Yeux Sans Visage (Eyes Without a Face)

Les Yeux Sans Visage is a 60's French horror film that influenced many other horror films to come (Face/Off, anyone?). A crazed doctor tries to help his daughter get a new face after a car crash left her severely disfigured. They fake her death so no one will come looking for her, including her fiance. With the help of his secretary, the doctor lures in one unsuspecting woman after another into his home to steal their faces and transplant them onto his daughter's- hoping they will stick. Their country home is the perfect backdrop for these crimes- no one can hear the screams.

This is a classic French horror film that I watch every year around this time. With all these modern horror/slasher films out now that scare you with gore or shock tactics, it's good to get back to the basics.



 They took her face, she died. What to do with the body? 
Drop her in the river and fake the daughter's death.

I don't think I can handle this...

A quiet French country home. You'd never suspect what was going on in the basement...

The daughter, Christiane.


Luring another girl to be experimented on...


Don't take my face!!



Bad luck.

....i couldn't handle this movie. I saw one once that they put a guy in a machine, and it spun, and as it spun he saw images of a kid bouncing a ball or something, and the image would go faster until the guy went crazy. The 'crazy' ones freak me out the most!!

This looks frickin scary and on top of it is black and white! I'd rather see one of these than a color one where someone's getting chased with a chainsaw. Give me a minute and I'll prolly see that mess on the news! ugh
