Crackpot scientist Vernon attempts to correct his daughter's mutilated face by grafting onto her the skin of murdered women while giving her transfusions of blood drained from his victims. His aide, Valle, a lascivious hunchback, is shown slavishly probing the bodies of the dead females,

and horrid scenes explicitly depict the skinning of the bodies by Vernon. Valle is really the physician's brother, we later learn, a dead man, murdered by Vernon after the doctor found him in bed with his wife, but transformed into a cretinous robot to do Vernon's bidding. Lorys, a fearless

ballerina, finally destroys the pair. This film spawned a number of similar disgusting films which drew the sado-masochist fans by the droves. A half-hearted attempt is made here and in subsequent sub-culture films like this at a surrealistic approach, with zany zooming and erratic cutaways to

further heighten the psychopathic nature of the characters. Sensationalism at its most distasteful.
