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

Many of us know it has been over a year since Amazon were taking pre-release orders, but now the product is finally available - yay! I have not seen the Criterion print so I cannot compare it (and I don't know if the BFI used the same print as Criterion), but this is beautifully clear and crisp. There is one brief scene, however, that seems rather grainy and soft(ish) focus - namely near the beginning when Dr. Génessier arrives to identify the body. Maybe other purchasers would like to comment on this, too? Audio is great with no fluctuations in volume. There is a very substantial, informative and well-produced booklet, all of which make this a must-buy purchase. I haven't had time to view the extras as yet.
One thing, though: I had forgotten just how long the infamous surgery scene actually is! And it still packs a punch today, even in a post-Saw and -Hostel torture porn era!
Eyes Without A Face epitomises "horror" probably more so than any other horror film I have seen. I don't think I have ever seen it feature in lists of the Top Horror Films Ever Made alongside the likes of The Shining, The Exorcist, Night Of The Living Dead, Psycho, etc. It should be. Sure there are no boogey men, no stalking and slashing, no one gets possessed, there are no zombies, no ghosts, no extreme torture or gore (although for it's day it must have seemed pretty extreme). But it is still a downright horrific, haunting, creepy experience that buries itself into one's subconscious and refuses to let go. It also has one of the best, most satisfying conclusions of any horror film I have ever seen. For that, and I don't throw these around very often, it gets a perfect 5.
