One of the best films I've ever seen,great storytelling,cinematography,editing and great performance by all actors.

I should see more silent film,"The Phantom Carriage" reminds me of great silent films I've seen like "Sunrise" and "The Passion of Joan of Arc".

one of the best of "horror genre", silent films suit horror,real haunting atmosphere comes from silence, not ... read more

It's New Year's Eve. Three drunkards evoke a legend. The legend tells that the last person to die in a year, if he is a great sinner, will have to drive during the whole year the Phantom Chariot, the one that picks up the souls of the dead...

31 Days of Horror (Halloween) 2019 (31 movies items)

" Date: 10/30/2019 Viewed: Criterion Channel Re-Watch Note: This movie is almost 100 years old and it's still a masterpiece. This movie has a very chilling story with a great atmosphere. The movie's themes are still relevant today with the dangers of using drugs and alcohol. I also love the music and the art direction that this movie has. If you haven't seen this movie, do it now. This is a classic movie that is worth seeing. "

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"Not unlike Fritz Lang in Destiny, Scandinavian cinema pioneer Victor Sjöström in The Phantom Carriage sees Death as a sorrowful figure, gathering wretched souls with the eponymous spectral chariot in a limbo of despair. “His is a hard task,” says a brooding tramp (Sjöström) amid the tombstones, moments before meeting his end and being handed the Reaper’s cloak and scythe. Chronicling a lout’s humbling awakening, the film weaves a thorny, haunting web of spiritual anguish, using doubl"

"14.8. Yle Areena Häiritsevän paljon Jeremy Clarcksonia muistuttava Victor Sjöström on deekuhtava mulkku, joka kokee lopussa parannuksen. Tällöin myös itketään, mutta ollaan onnellisia. Kaltaiseni kyynikko on mehuissaan, kun Sjöström vie mulkkuuden käsittämättömille ulottuvuuksille, mutta pettyy inhimmillisyyden voittaessa. Teksnisesti vaikuttava, sisältää paljon ikimuistoista kamaa ja Sjöströmin näyttely on mahtavaa."

"18.7. (Yle Areena) #leffahaaste2018 Näen kyllä, kuinka tämä on ollut merkittävä elokuva juuri Bergmanille. Näen myös, kuinka tämä on ollut merkittävä elokuva Kubrickille. Elokuvan nähneet ymmärtävät nämä molemmat toteamukset. En silti saa tästä kirjoitettua mitään järjellistä. Mykkäelokuvat harvemmin jaksavat innostaa, mutta tämän elokuvan nimikkohahmossa oli jotain selkäpiitä karmivaa, että olisi varmaan syytä tutustua tuon aikakauden kauhutarjontaan suuremmin."
