Synopsis:
Sir John Rowan (Peter Cushing) is a prominent plastic surgeon with a beautiful and youthful fiancée named Lynn (Sue Lloyd), who works as a fashion model. At a raucous party, Rowan - much older than any of the other attendees, and clearly uncomfortable around the countercultural excess of the late 1960's - gets into a physical altercation with a sleazy photographer, and during the scuffle, a hot lamp falls on Lynn, severely scarring her face. Rowan pledges to reverse Lynn's disfigurement, experimenting with laser technology to revive her skin and eventually coming up with a cure-all: a Frankensteinian transplant of pituitary glands.
Driven by a combination of guilt and love, Rowan goes on a murder spree, killing young women in order to use their pituitary glands to restore his fiancée's beauty. The procedure is successful, and the couple go on holiday to a seaside cottage, where all is fine for now, but they know that her face will soon start to show signs of deterioration...
