The Phantom of the Opera (1925)

The Phantom of the Opera (1925) (3/10) is one of the better horror films of that time period. By that I mean that it’s not super campy and silly like Dracula or the Frankenstein films. No, it would probably not scare modern audiences, but Chaney’s mask is suprisingly effective. There are also so good set-pieces in the film that add a lot of the atmosphere. Unfortunately, the acting is dated and hamfisted, which takes away from the overall impact of the film.
