BONUS ROUND of my Universal Monsters marathon.
The one that started it all! The silent powerhouse and the movie that proved to Universal pictures that horror was actually profitable.
What can I say honestly about this film that hasn’t been said yet. Lon Chaney provided the definitive Phantom in his portrayal that absolutely holds up today. The masquerade ball sequence still absolutely owns.
This ranks among the best that the Universal Monster movies have to offer.
