The Face
14 April 2015 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Doris Dowling plays an ambitious young woman named Charlotte, who has recently married a rich older aristocrat(played by Max Adrian) after they conspired to murder his wife. Strange things start happening when the wall space where the first wife's portrait once hanged now shows a growing stain that no amount of scrubbing can wash out. Soon, this stain becomes the face of the dead woman, which distorts into a sinister looking skull, which threatens to expose their crime, if they aren't driven mad first... Eerie entry has a surefire premise, though the cast of characters don't really grab the viewer like they should. Still, this is memorable.
