Silent Revue celebrates Halloween with Swedish master Victor Sjöström’s THE PHANTOM CARRIAGE. The favourite film of Charles Chaplin, and a film that would influence Sjöström’s Swedish compatriot Ingmar Bergman with his radical depiction of death in THE SEVENETH SEAL, THE PHANTOM CARRAIGE even inspired the “Here’s Johnny” axe sequence in Kubrick’s THE SHINING. Simply put: it’s a horror icon.
Preceded by the animated Felix the Cat in SWITCHES WITCHES.
