Week 2: Genre - Horror - Silent Horror (1913-1928)
Even though my experience of this was slightly lessened because I watched one of the f̶r̶e̶e̶ versions on Youtube dot com, it's still a neat and great looking Gothic horror/drama nonetheless. Lon Chaney's makeup stands out in particular - there's a reason it's still remembered almost a century later.
My only beef with this film, and maybe the Phantom story in general, is that unless your name is Killmonger or Magneto, Erik isn't a very intimidating name for a villain. Good thing he has that gruesome face!
