The Phantom of the Opera

The Phantom of the Opera ★★★★★

Lon Chaney is great as the creepy masked man (The Phantom) who lives under the Paris Opera house who falls for a young singer called Christine (Mary Philbin) and wants to help her to become a lead performer. His obsession soon gets to much when he takes her prisoner and he was simply amazing, truly terrifying and just very in-depth. The music was very fitting and the entire experience is creepy and extremely engaging, the famous unmasking scene and "Bal Masqué" scene were big stand outs in this deeply immersive, atmospheric horror masterpiece that I know will stick with me.
