Depressing, Creepy, Disturbing but badly made horror film
4 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have been wanting to see this movie for a long time as to the plot and reviews of read on how creepy and disturbing this movie was and to see the legendary silver screen siren of Gloria Grahamm (It's a wonderful life, Greatest Show on earth, Oaklahoma!)and was pleased when I found the DVD for $6 and snatched it up. first of all the DVD says its been remastered on the back. thats a lie since the film had scratches, lines and broken celluloid so I was very disappointed on the film quality. unfortunately the budget shows and thats not a good thing. looks very cheaply done, horrible lighting, badly lit, terrible cinematography, however, does have some really disturbing creepy scenes. PLOT: Dr. Channey (Richard Basehart of Voyage to the bottom of the sea fame) is guilt stricken when his daughter Nancy is blinded in a car crash and is obsessed with restoring her eye sight by transplanting eye balls from one person to her but the creepy thing is he leaves them chained in a dark cold cage in the basement of his house eyeless and alone. when the first transplant works then fails he becomes insane and starts luring innocent people into his home and removing their eye balls with the assistance of his wife Katherine (Gloria Grahamm), as the people begin to pile up and some start to die, the tension mounts as the victims start to take revenge on their captors. a very depressing downbeat film with disturbing creepy moments of the people in the basement and an even more downbeat gory ending. however the movie is not that great and really could of been something really great and scary. awesome make up effects by Stan Winston of the eyeless victims. 5/10
