The Phantom of the Opera

The Phantom of the Opera ★★★★★

An absolutely unforgettable rendition of the famous story of the Phantom, the ’25 version of The Phantom of the Opera is my favorite version that I’ve seen yet (other than the stage version, of course). The Kino Lorber restoration on the film is nothing less than stunning, with a quality that left me breathless. It may not be the scariest film out there, but for the time, this must have been a true fright - it’s watching films like this that make me want to go back in time and see how people reacted to films. I absolutely love this story, and this film certainly has won me over.
