Definitely a fever dream but much closer to the book than I can comfortably admit. Chaney does amazing work.
Extremely important historically. A classic from early cinema years when movies were almost like filmed plays.
Lon Chaney’s Phantom is as sympathetic as he is fearsome. Nearly 100 years later his legacy lives on.
I like how before the phantom was a suave mysterious lover he was this ghoulish goofy incel, this absolute creep. Uses his cane as a snorkel
An absolute classic. Haunting. Best seen with an audience on a big screen.
Some cool visuals but the things a slog, even for fans of silent films
Classic. Best cinematic adaptation of Phantom. One drawback: it's hard to call a silent version "definitive" when "Opera" is in the title.
LON CHANEY IS A GODDAMN LEGEND. enough said
Most faithful film adaptation to the novel, Lon Chaney's portrayal of the Phantom is iconic and expressionistic. Color versions also exist.
Great film of the silent era. Masterful performance from Lon Chaney
Classic silent film with fantastic gothic imagery and a sympathetic villain
One of the classic horror films fantastic
Lon Chaney is amazing in this. You would be surprised how well The Phantom of the Opera works as a silent film.
Not a must for silent movies era,but still a very good performance from Chaney
Chaney shines in this granddaddy of Monster movies. His makeup is simply PHENOMENAL
Wow. I am not one for early movies but this one isn’t bad for the year it was released in.
I like this one alot more because it felt like the therter
way better then other phantom of the opera movies, followed plot of book
Extremely boring film, first film I have falling asleep to
Unexpectedly good for how old it is. Still a good watch, for the history alone. Lon Cheney does great and earns all the praise he has gotten
