VERY GOOD vintage 1929 reissue of 1925 silent 'horror' film - interesting production, acting, etc.

One of the best ways to view the Lon Chaney "Phantom of the Opera" without being distracted by poor care of producers and corporations. This includes a wonderful score that compliments the film well and allows the viewer access to some of the different versions of the movie through the years. With endorsement from the Phantom Reviewer himself, it is highly recomended this is the version begin your journey to the beauty underneath one of America's first horror films.

The Phantom Strikes Again!

Released in 1925 - With actor Lon Chaney's compelling performance as "The Phantom" being one of this silent film's strongest assets, here's a production (filmed on a grand scale) that's probably one of the most civilized & cultured horror movies of all time.

Set in and around the magnificent Paris Opera House in Paris, France, this tragic story of obsession, revenge and unrequited love is both a finely-tuned and nicely-paced tale that holds the viewer's rapt attention right through to its climatic ending.

This film is certainly not short on riveting drama. The one scene where diva Christine Daae tears away the Phantom's mask to reveal the hideous ugliness that's just below has got to be one of the most shocking moments in all of horror-movie history.

Now 90+ years old, I highly recommend this film to anyone who enjoys a genuine scare in the good, old-fashioned way.
