As part of the Siskel Film Center’s “Mask of Sanity” series, which features a collection of films dealing in psychological terror, Eyes Without a Face will be shown this weekend. Georges Franju’s classic involves a mad scientist who wants to restore his daughter’s face, which has been disfigured in an automobile accident. With his daughter’s help, they lure young women to his laboratory, where gruesome experiments ensue. Initially panned by critics, some of whom were put off by the disturbing thematic and visual material, the film has become a cult classic in the past few decades, and it shows in 35mm on Saturday.Eyes Without a Face (1960), Saturday, 5:15 p.m.
