The arch-criminal Shadowman, or the man without a face, is out to steal the treasure of the Templar Knights from the surviving members of the sect in Paris. His accomplices include a nameless, beautiful but sadistic woman, and a mad surgeon whose talents on the operating table have created an army of masked killer- zombies. Artificial, devoid of emotional involvement or sentimentality, this strange film, meant for both cinema and TV, is pure pop pulp fun, with touches of the macabre. Evil is the superior force and indeed seems set for a glorious future.
