A fascinating film!
11 May 2000 | by (S. Bound Brook, NJ) – See all my reviews

In this rare silent, Bowers plays a Scottish detective who is assigned to capture a "fuzz-faced phantom" who "haunts" a house.

The special effects, especially the stop-motion segments, are truly revolutionary and creative (in one scene, an egg hatches into a full-grown chicken right before your eyes!). And, the "phantom" does some pretty weird things, via special effects.

Bowers was a film "genius" and, in my opinion, far surpasses George Melies, and others.

I have MOST of this film, but not the entire film. If anyone has it (or other Bowers films), I would LOVE to purchase copies of them.

Thank you! Norm
