YMMV / Eyes Without a Face

The My Little Pony Fanfic:

The film:

  • Adaptation Displacement: The movie is actually based on a book of the same name.
    • It goes even further because many people only know of the Billy Idol song and have no idea it's based on this movie.
  • Vindicated by History: Initial critical reception of the film was very negative; one film critic nearly got fired for writing a positive review! Nowadays it is placed along the best that horror genre can offer.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The make-up effects still hold up wonderfully half a century later. Special mention to Christiane's face.
  • The Woobie: Christiane.
