More a meditative drama with supernatural elements than a full-blown fear show, Face shows the no bounds of the horror genre. Despite the supernatural aspects being rote, the film is well acted and can be touching at times, like its dazzling, tear-jerking final twist. Is it undercooked? Yes. Could it have been a gripping classic? Yes, the components are there...but Face is still creative and well done enough.
