DIABOLIQUE & EYES WITHOUT A FACE at Cinematheque | Hollywood Gothique
The American Cinematheque screens a double bill of French thrillers, laced with horror. DIABOLIQUE is a bit over-rated, its reputation based mostly on the crack-jack ending in which a widow's murdered husband comes back to life - or does he? EYES WITHOUT A FACE is one of the greatest horror films ever made - its poetic, stately style interrupted by the insanely graphic skin grafting seen. It's all about a doctor trying to restore his daughters face, which was destroyed in an automobile accident.
