Silence is great

Silence is great once again to me, as this is my 2nd viewing of a silent film. My first was City Lights which was awesome, this just as great. We all know the famous image of the Phantom, and how it would give kids nightmares. The phantom brought life to this film, and when we see that moment of shock, when he takes off the mask, we are all in "ahh" of what we see.

It has a tremendous amount of things in common with Dracula, it’s a canonized lion of a film despite not being much good and interminably boring, yet it’s blessed with a central performance that is probably the entire reason that the film continues to endure. I suppose the most accurate way to describe to would be: classic-by-default.

Since it is such a classic, I thought it was finally to time to check it out. Honestly, I had a rather hard time to make up my mind about this flick. First of all, is it really a horror feature? Sometimes, I thought it was actually pretty funny above all because of the mannered acting of those silent movies. I mean, with a Charles Chaplin movie, it works like a charm but with a horror flick like t... read more

At the Opera of Paris, a mysterious phantom threatens a famous lyric singer, Carlotta and thus forces her to give up her role (Marguerite in Faust) for unknown Christine Daae. Christine meets this phantom (a masked man) in the catacombs, where he lives. What's his goal? What's his secret?

A classic

“Since it is such a classic, I thought it was finally to time to check it out. Honestly, I had a rather hard time to make up my mind about this flick. First of all, is it really a horror feature? Sometimes, I thought it was actually pretty funny above all because of the mannered acting of those silent movies. I mean, with a Charles Chaplin movie, it works like a charm but with a horror flick like this one, it makes you chuckle quite often. Also, even though at first I was quite happy with the awesome classic music, it was actually rather distracting because, since it wasn’t especially composed for this movie, it often didn’t fit at all the action. Still, the production value was quite impressive, especially for a movie almost reaching 90 years old, and there was definitely something dar” read more

"First viewing - Nov. 4th/5th I've been meaning to watch this film for some time now, but kept putting it off for no real reason. Well, Netflix decided to remove it from streaming this month so I figured it was time to finally watch it. Normally that means this should also be in my "Netflix exorcisms" section, but since it was recommended last month by Mr. Saturn for the Netflix Instant project it earns this placement instead. So now I've seen it, and I've got to admit it fell short of my expec"

Interesting Early Horror

“The second of many film adaptations of Gaston Leroux's novel (the first being a 'lost' and mostly forgotten film, "The Phantom of the Opera" is mostly famous for Lon Chaney's very physical performance as the titular phantom, a hideously deformed man who lurks the halls of the Paris Opera House, circa 19th Century.

The Phantom (or Erik, as he'd rather be called, though no one ever does) is obsessed with one singular goal, winning the love of the beautiful Christine Daae (Mary Philbin), an opera singer who he idolizes. Willing to do anything to make her a star and earn her affections, Erik pulls strings to make her a leading lady, but his obsession comes with deadly consequences.

I'll be perfectly honest- although from my love of fictional loners, losers, and lunatics th” read more

"The frightening, eerie moment that the mad Erik (Lon Chaney, Sr.), the horribly disfigured phantom of the opera, is unmasked and shows his "accursed ugliness" is in Universal's definitive silent horror classic. The phantom is in love with Christine Daae (Mary Philbin), a soprano understudy at the Paris Opera. After he has professed his "love triumphant" for her, and while he is playing the organ in the opera house, she fearfully creeps up behind him and hesitantly rips off his mask, revealing h"
