"The morbid fascination starts building before the picture is ten minutes gone. By the time it is rolling toward a climax it is spreading the most delicious chills. It is a pip of a murder thriller, ghost story and character play rolled into one."
– Bosley Crowther, The New York Times
“Cruel, sour, and – unfortunately – very effective.”
– David Kehr
(1960, Georges Franju) The ethereal Edith Scob, in a simultaneously beautiful and creepy mask, floats through operating room and dog kennel as doves fly past. A surgeon lectures on the “heterograft.” But who’s that face-down on her bed on the top floor of the doctor’s house? Approx. 84 min. 35mm.
“An incredible amalgam of horror and fairytale…
Illuminated throughout by Franju's unique sense of poetry,
it's a marvellous movie in the fullest sense.”
– Tom Milne, Time Out (London)
“Perhaps the most elegant horror movie ever made.”
– Pauline Kael
