Euro Horror Week! begins at Trailers from Hell with screenwriter Sam Hamm introducing Georges Franju's seminal French film "Eyes Without a Face," which centers on a surgeon's maniacal focus on restoring his daughter's disfigured face.
French documentarian and co-founder of the Cinematheque Francaise Georges Franju's second fiction feature remains one of the most influential horror films of its decade, a nightmarishly poetic dreamscape that elevates a Monogram Pictures-level conceit to the realm of expressive exotica. Jess Franco, John Woo and Pedro Almodovar are just a few of the filmmakers whose work has reflected elements of Franju's bizarre achievement.
