Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 02/23/1996
"...Genuine chills....Deeply unnerving..." -- Rating: A-
Los Angeles Times - 01/21/1996
"...From its expressive title to its brilliant, unsettling images, LES YEUX SANS VISAGE is a film to haunt your dreams..."
USA Today - 01/12/2001
"...Georges Franju's French horror masterpiece..."
Los Angeles Times - 10/31/2003
"...A film to haunt your dreams. Disturbing, disorienting, quietly terrifying....A startlingly beautiful and artful piece of cinema as well..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/31/2003
"Franju constructs an elegant visual work; here is a horror movie in which the shrieks are not by the characters but by the images."
Sight and Sound - 01/01/2005
"Maurice Jarre provides a disturbingly jaunty, nightmare-carousel score..."
Uncut - 06/01/2008
4 stars out of 5 -- "Georges Franju's 1959 horror-fairytale hybrid remains a true one-off....This is like Bunuel untethered."
Empire - 07/01/2008
4 stars out of 5 -- "Lyrical and macabre, its creepy aura prevails right through to its closing shot, still one of the most enigmatic in the genre -- haunting, confounding and destined to linger."
