_“A demented version of Pygmalion, with a dash of FRANKENSTEIN and EYES WITHOUT A FACE thrown in.” _— The Bloody Pit of Horror
He lost the face of the woman he loved… so he gave it to someone else. T.V. staple Robert Lansing (Star Trek; Alfred Hitchcock Presents; The Twilight Zone) stars as a deranged surgeon in this exemplary slice of Southern-fried gothic from BLOOD RAGE director John Grissmer and celebrated cinematographer Edward Lachman (KEN PARK; THE VIRGIN SUICIDES).
Lansing plays Dr. Phillip Reynolds, a man whose daughter Heather (Judith Chapman, As the World Turns; General Hospital) has run away from home a year prior following the suspicious death of her boyfriend. When he happens across a young woman one night, her face beaten beyond recognition, the unhinged Reynolds sees his opportunity to put his trusty scalpel to use — hatching a plan to “reconstruct” her face in the image of his missing daughter, and so claim her sizeable inheritance.
