(1966) Jean Sorel, Lisa Gastoni, Edmund Purdom, Ilari Occhini. Critics have been a little too unkind to this remake of the 1928 Conrad Veidt classic. It’s actually a fairly decent Euro-thriller. Sorel plays a boy who is kidnapped by gypsies. They mutilate his face into a sardonic, always-grinning atrocity. He’s then made into a circus attraction. While only marginally a horror film, this gothic thriller has plenty of intrigue and some fine moments of subtle horror. The hayloft love scene is most bizarre! Color, 16mm.
