Man has accident. Needs new face.
Fortunately he’s friends with a brilliant tissue-replacement surgeon who wants to test his theories that facially-scarred people can reintegrate into society if their faces could appear normal again.
They find someone with a good face to copy (note: it’s the miner from Pitfall)
The doctor works hard in his all-glass laboratory.
The procedure is a success!
But the doctor’s psychological theories were wrong – the burnt man uses his new face to create a sociopath alternate personality, kind of like Hollow Man but not at all like Darkman.
Meanwhile, a young woman with a similarly deformed face has an unhealthy relationship with her brother.
Completely beautiful movie, obviously.
If Pitfall was a weird movie, this one just dives off a steep cliff of weirdness.
And it doesn’t end well. For anyone.
