EYES WITHOUT A FACE
I saw this movie for the first time this week. A couple of observations. The first and last scenes are brilliant, eerily setting the tone and then bringing it full circle. The pace was strangely slow--people even moved slowly. It was almost reminiscent of zombie movies. There was an ethereal quality-was it the lighting? Sometimes it looked sharp and other times so fuzzy. The barking dogs, the foggy night, the sycophantic nurse, the basement operating room, the balletic but disfigured daughter, the caged birds and dogs all were used to great effect. I think I'm going to like this movie even more tomorrow. A banal final thought: the disfigured girl wearing her mask looked so much like Mia Farrow.
What are the scariest movies for you? I'd pick THE EXORCIST and THE BIRDS.
