    There’s no other movie quite like it.

    Disturbing, disorienting, quietly terrifying, it's one of the least known of the world's great horror movies and, in its own dark way, a startlingly beautiful and artful piece of cinema as well.
  3. 90
    A masterpiece of poetic horror and tactful, tactile brutality.
  4. 88
    Eyes Without a Face, outre as it is, never tires as hypnotic, touching, ghastly fun.
  5. 88
    Franju constructs an elegant visual work; here is a horror movie in which the shrieks are not by the characters but by the images.

    A blood-curdling picture directed by Georges Franju at an even, distant pace that builds tension to an almost unbearable level.

    Director Georges Franju has given this some suspense and not spared any shock details. But the stilted acting, asides to explain characters and motivations, and a repetition of effects lose the initial impact.
