Journey Into the Worlds of the Silent Horror Film
19 August 2003 | by (Newfoundland, Canada) – See all my reviews

This film provides a fascinating look at the silent era of Horror, luring you into its dark and shadowy domains. The vast almost immeasurable influence of these films upon the Horror, Science Fiction, Film Noir, Fantasy and even Mystery genres cannot be discounted and this film provides you with glimpses and details sure to convince you of the full worth of the films from this era. Narrated by the deep voiced Rod Steiger, along with the haunting music of Joseph Turrin, this film feels like an hidden canvas being uncovered before your very eyes..a journey within the worlds of silent era Horror itself!
