As far as movies where some creeper harvests and sells off the endlessly growing hair of a dead or comatose person with nefarious intent go, it's not as crazy as Peanut Butter Solution. But this is definitely a solid entry in the hair-run-amok genre. Inventive kills, harsh family dynamics, massive amounts of hair, and it exists, which is all a movie like this needs to do for me to appreciate it somewhat.

I saw this as a cynical, shitty teenager, and hated it. Even before revisiting it, I was deeply ashamed of this fact because I knew in my heart I was wrong. I am proud of how much I have matured in the last 17 years as a viewer of cinema, and that I can now recognize Face/Off as one of the greatest films of all time.
