This lurid Spanish thriller involves the efforts of a revolutionary plastic surgeon (Fernando Rey) to graft a lovely new face on a former mental patient (Lisa Gaye). Though she requires regular applications of an experimental skin cream in order to render the new look permanent, she escapes into hiding after committing murder to cover her shadowy past. When her supply of the treatment runs out -- on her honeymoon, no less -- she undergoes a grotesque transformation and sets out on the requisite murderous rampage. A bit of impromptu (and sloppy) cosmetic surgery was also performed on this film by its U.S. distributor, with additional English dialogue scenes haphazardly edited into the already confusing original.
