Georges Franju's 1960 spine-tingling classic arrives on Blu-ray in mid October!
In an early announcement to retailers, Criterion says 'Eyes Without a Face' will be released on Blu-ray on October 15.
At his secluded chateau in the French countryside, a brilliant, obsessive doctor (Pierre Brasseur) attempts a radical plastic surgery to restore the beauty of his daughter’s disfigured countenance—at a horrifying price.
The Blu-ray will feature a 1080p digital transfer, an uncompressed monaural soundtrack, and supplements include: Blood of the Beasts, Georges Franju's 1949 documentary about the slaughterhouses of Paris (new high-definition digital restoration on the Blu-ray edition); Archival interviews with Franju on horror, cinema, and the making of Blood of the Beasts; Excerpt from Les Grands-pères du crime, a 1985 documentary about Eyes Without a Face writers Pierre Boileau and Thomas Narcejac; Trailers; a booklet featuring essays by novelist Patrick McGrath and film historian David Kalat; and a Blu-ray exclusive new interview with actor Edith Scob.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
