I love to watch archive.org. Many of its free public domain TV shows and movies are linked to IMDb--and I like that. However, some series, such as "Lights Out", turn out to be pretty flat. While I love the idea of a horror anthology series, too often the episodes were poorly crafted and not very suspenseful. Fortunately, ones like "The Faceless Man" come along and make it worth while.

When the show begins, a rich guy is having the bandages removed after having very extensive plastic surgery. Now he's handsome--once he was apparently very hideous. However, in a weird twist, the now handsome guy (Robert Sterling) kills the doctor so that no one will know what he now looks like--proving he's a real sociopath. He apparently is doing all this in a sick plan of revenge--one where he plans on destroying people because of some perceived slight. However, soon a masked man arrives who knows all of his plans--and it sets off a very strange series of events.

The show is quite original--with plenty of unusual twists as well as a novel story idea. Not brilliant but quite good.
