Blu-ray News #36: Curse Of The Faceless Man (1958).

Curse Of Faceless Man LC2

Directed by Edward L. Cahn
Starring Richard Anderson, Elaine Edwards, Adele Mara, Louis Van Rooten

More wonderful junk comes to Blu-ray from Kino Lorber — Edward L. Cahn’s Curse Of The Faceless Man (1958) is due by the end of the year. It’s about a petrified body from Pompeii that comes to life and crushes the skulls of whoever it comes across.

It originally played with It! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958), already available from Kino Lorber. Sounds like a good way to spend a high-def evening.

    Growing up in the UK in the Fifties,us kids could
    not see these films because they were given an “X”
    certificate…over 16’s only.
    As a child I was transfixed by the lurid posters for
    films like QUATERMASS 2 and THE BLACK SCORPION.
    Being a rather tall kid I was able to pass as 16 by the time
    I reached the age of 13 so I frantically padded all over London
    tracking these things down.
    Most of them played in one day only, Sunday double bills,mostly
    at large cinemas.
    It was a great way to catch up with these films and I always thought
    they looked great on huge cinema screens.
    Now it’s wonderful to see high def widescreen versions of these
    films,and it’s amazing how well they stand up.

    I dunno about the “brain rot” thing.
    I start watching some Fifties Fox CinemaScope
    big-budgeter and I start to get bored,restless.
    Sometimes Iv’e just GOT to watch a guy in a cheap
    looking rubber suit chasing folks all over the place.

    I’d like to have that on a bumper sticker!
