George A. Romero is at it again in this thriller/ horror flick. Henry (Jason Flemyng) is a real "97-pound weakling" who allows others to walk over him. His boss (at the magazine called "Bruiser") is having an affair with Henry's wife, and his best friend and advisor is ripping him off. One day Henry awakens to find that he has no face–just a blank whiteness where the face belongs. Now he can get revenge on those who have wronged him. A sort of fun tongue-in-cheeker with a social message.
