The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Phantom Carriage (1921)

AKA: Körkarlen

Director: Victor Sjöström

During a night of drinking, three friends recount the legend of the "phantom carriage" which says the last sinner to die on the eve of the New Year will be forced to be the collector of the souls.

My Take:
For a silent movie made nearly 90 years ago, it holds up fairly well. The camera and lighting techniques stand out. Great performances too.
Check out this classic flick.

Rating: So Good.
