Curse of the Faceless Man

Curse of the Faceless Man is a 1958 horror film directed by Edward Cahn and starring Richard Anderson (Forbidden Planet). Jerome Bixby (who wrote several Star Trek: TOS episodes) did the screenplay, and Gerald Fried (who wrote music for Star Trek: TOS, including the fight music for Amok Time) did the music. I enjoyed this one. It's available on DVD.

you can watch it here:

DVD Talk calls it "an eerie and atmospheric tale that's more enjoyable than it has any right to be" and closes by saying, "Technically it is a solid film with good composition and careful lighting and that goes a long way towards making it a fun movie." AMCtv has an overview and other information, as does TCM.
