In the excavation of Pompeii, a stone-encrusted body is found with a bronze medallion bearing a strange Etruscan inscription. Carlo Fiorillo, Italian archaeologist, speculates the robust body may hold some life; medical researcher Paul Mallon scoffs at the idea. But people left alone with the seemingly petrified "faceless man" keep dying of crushed skulls; and Paul's artist fiancée Tina starts having strange visions... Written by

On its initial release, the standard co-feature with this movie was IT! THE TERROR FROM BEYOND SPACE. See more »
The archaeologists are obviously untrained in handling dig sites or artifacts. See more »
Dr. Carlo Fiorillo:
One more of these killings and they will hold me criminally responsible.
The fools! Here we are so close to solving the mystery of life and death, and they worry about their precious laws.

I remember seeing this film when i was about 8 or 9 in the early 1970s. I was scared stiff then but now look back on the memories and laugh. I discuss with my teenager kids about all the old hammer horror films that i used to watch from the 50s,60s and 70s.Im trying to get a copy of this film and any other films with the Faceless Man titles. ( black and white horrors ).If anyone can help me out it would be appreciated.I will pay money and costs of shipping or exchange for some items from Australia ie White pointers (Shark) tooth pendant.On vhs tape can be either ntsc or pal recordings.Just remember you can never replace the memories or scared feelings that these old hammer horrors gave us when we were young and impressionable.I gave this a 10 rating cos it was the first horror film i saw and the fond memories of how scared i was are still with me to this day 30 years later.
