Curse Of The Faceless Man tells the story of a man encased in stone after the lava hit him at the destruction of Pompeii. He's been that way for almost 2000 years until an archaeological dig found him. But he's as dead as an unstaked vampire and he's carrying a 2000 year old itch that needs scratching.
I'm sure a lot of viewers spotted the parallels between this film and the classic Boris Karloff version of The Mummy. Both Karloff's Im Ho Tep and Quintillus Aurelius the gentleman caught in that lava flow are staking claim to a currently alive woman who is the reincarnated beloved of their ancient crushes.
The scientific explanations offered by Doctors Richard Anderson, Adele Mara, Luis Van Rooten, Felix Locher, and Gar Moore are really kind of sketchy. These players sure got nowhere near Naples on the budget this film had.
How did they destroy this man of stone? Here's a hint, he went the way of the Triffids.
Typical and cheap 50s science fiction.
