Here is Trailers From Hell's David DeCoteau on the 1976 film "Mansion of the Doomed":

Hardly a high point in the careers of stars Richard Basehart and Gloria Grahame (not to mention an up-and-coming Lance Henrickson), this grisly little grindhouse version of Eyes Without a Face still has its disturbing moments. Insane surgeon Basehart transplants the eyeballs of unwilling live donors into the sockets of his maimed daughter and fails every time. DP Andrew Davis went on to direct studio movies like The Fugitive. Also known as Eyes, The Eyes of Dr. Chaney, Terror of Dr. Chaney and Massacre Mansion.
