When a beautiful girl is horribly disfigured in a car accident, her brilliant physician father (Pierre Brasseur), the driver of the vehicle, vows to graft her a new face from other innocent young women. Is it out of love for his blemished christiane? Is it guilt? Or is the diabolical Dr. Gnessier making a Frankenstein of his beloved?
Brilliantly directed by Georges Fanju (Blood of the Beasts), this ghastly yet poetic tale of macabre madness is the suspense-horror masterpiece that prefigured psycho and spawned a generation of slasher-shocker films.
