Did You Know?


Following the filming of the rape scene, Gérard Zalcberg was so disgusted by what his character was scripted to act out that he started weeping and apologizing terribly to Caroline Munro. Munro comforted him, telling him she understood fully and reminding him that it was truly only acting, not real. The scene originally called for Munro to be partially nude, but she refused, claiming that was unnecessary and insisting that just showing some scenes which hinted at what was happening would get the basic idea across.

Surgical nightmare.
2 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

Dr.Frank Flamand(Helmut Berger)is a famous surgeon whose sister was badly scarred on her face.He wants to do everything to help her restore her beauty.With the help of Nathalie(Brigitte Lahaie)and sexually perverted Gordon Frank drugs and kidnaps young women to find the best candidate for face transplantation.When they kidnap an American fashion model named Barbara(Caroline Munro),her father(short cameo by Telly Savalas)hires a private detective named Sam(Christopher Mitchum)to find her.Jesus Franco's "Faceless" is perhaps among his most famous movies.There is plenty of soft-core sex and nudity plus some shockingly nasty gore.Two face removal scenes are especially memorable as is the syringe-in-the-eye bit.8 surgeries out of 10.Very solid and pretty sleazy splatter flick.
