The Phantom Carriage

The Phantom Carriage ★★★★★

99 years & 100 movies
This was made in 1921????
So much is going on for the time I was blown away.
If I had seen this when I was younger I would have been utterly terrified.

The filters to signify different points in location.
The flashback narrative structure.
The grim reaper fable.

Honestly wasn't expecting to get so involved but that ending I LOVED. Wow a hallmark.

Also I'm naive and could be completely wrong but the ax & door scene seemed to be a direct influence on The Shining (though Kubrick obviously kicks it up a notch for the thriller/horrific aspect).
