EYES WITHOUT A FACE (Dual Format Edition – DVD + Blu-ray)
A film by Georges Franju
Pierre Brasseur (Les Enfants du Paradis) is Dr Génessier, a brilliant and obsessive plastic surgeon driven by the need to restore his daughter s disfigured face and push the boundaries of his field. Aided by his loyal assistant Alida Valli (Suspiria), who lures young women to his secluded chateau in pursuit of his dark quest. Eugen Schüfftan's (The Hustler) stunning cinematography lends the chateau an almost Cocteau-esque life of its own, and Edith Scob (Judex) is quite remarkable as the ravaged beauty.
Eyes Without a Face is at once cruel and tender, highlighting Georges Franju's unique blend of pulp, horror and poetry. In the decades since its release it has been a major influence on filmmakers as diverse as Jesús Franco, John Carpenter and, more recently, Pedro Almodóvar.Special features

Directed by Georges Franju this film is in many ways an art house film. Franju is a director of note for this and the movie Judex which he did a couple of years later.
The story is an old often used horror film staple of a mad doctor using live females that he will kill to bring back a loved one that is either dying or disfigured as is the case here.
Franju is a director who for me is one of what I call set pieces. There are scenes of wonderful atmosphere and depth but his movies don't hold all together as a story or movie even.
Now that might discourage a few people from seeing the movie I recommend it still. There are moments of horror that still hold and captivate the viewer and these make it worth seeing.
For the collectors this version has an excellent set of extras that add to the enjoyment of seeing it and having it on Bluray.BFI has anexcellent transfer and the commentary with the film by Tim Lucas is informative.
