Exploitation acting stalwart Michael Pataki directs this oft-told tale of a respectable doctor going to morally questionable means to restore his daughter's eyesight.
You know...like kidnapping people and removing their eyes for transplant.
Then he keeps them alive and locked in a filthy basement cage. You know, because, when he finally solves the whole eyesight rejection thing, he can give them new eyes, too.
Dick Basehart plays the doctor, and Gloria Grahame, his long-suffering assistant. Yes, this is 1976, so, kudos to Pataki for casting these film veterans (although Basehart also starred in the mediocre Don Taylor adaptation of The Island of Dr. Moreau around this time. In full lion makeup, no less.)
Lance Henrikson turns in a nice performance…
