The movie really works primarily because of Diffring's truly magnetic performance, a complicated turn that sees his Rossiter/Schuler veer between sympathetic and sociopathic.
A plot that only a very simple-minded sadist would take seriously sustains an anthology of gory killings and maimings.
Has some brilliant gory Grand Guignol moments during its circus sequences.
...a tedious and downright worthless endeavor...
Dull horror flick from schock distributor AIP. The plot points are WAY too convoluted for a movie of this genre. A famous plastic surgeon terribly botches a woman's face, changes his name and runs away with his assistants/henchpersons, by chance comes across a run-down circus, buys it from Donald Pleasance (with hair!), staffs it with criminals who he does surgery on so they'll be beautiful and unrecongnizable to the authorities, but he keeps dossiers on all of them so if they try to leave and expose him, he can expose them back, but that doesn't matter because he falls in love with all the women, and when they try to leave he kills them during their circus performances, and....aww, to hell with it. Not bad enought to be fun. Just bad.
