As I recall, this movie had a haunting (bad choice for an adjective) theme song, which stayed with me every time I saw a scantily-clad woman spinning on a wheel with knives being thrown at her. Weirdly satisfying little chunk of horror.
This cheap, tawdry movie about plastic surgery is a guilty pleasure. They should remake it with big stars like Nicole Kidman who have had tons of enhancements. Maybe turn it into a comedy with Joan Collins as the woman with the half destroyed face.
Petit film d'horreur bienvenu, qui garde un charme désuet souvent présent dans ce genre de production fort peu prisée à l'époque de sa réalisation et qui tend aujourd'hui vers une totale et justifiée réhabilitation cinématographique... www.cinefiches.com
