A deranged eye surgeon (Richard Basehart) seeks eyeballs for his blinded daughter, feeling responsible for her blindness because of a car accident they were in. In his gruesome search to restore her sight he starts kidnapping people (among them a young Lance Henriksen) and removing their eyes--and instead of killing them keeps them locked up in a cage down in his basement. At first the transplants work--but each time he does on it works less and less. He becoems more insane, his daughter's appearance more scarred and horrible, and the number of angry blind people with their empty sockets grows. A real downward spiral going on here. Eventually the daughter catches on and releases all the prisoners, who rip out the doctor's eyes in revenge. This is not a pleasant movie but it is one of the creepiest horror movies I've seen in a long time.
