It's my understanding that Mr Cushing was not a big fan of this film and had regrets making it.
Regardless, it is a fascinating take on Franju's 1960 "Eyes Without A Face" (a vastly superior film) and will no doubt grab it as the extras look stellar and well, it does have Mr Cushing.
Price is suitable also.
