This October, it’s back!!! That is, Silent-ology’s focus on all things spooky, creepy, gothic, and vampy. I frickin’ love Halloween–if you can’t tell–and this year I can hardly decide which scary film to cover first.
My Halloween-inspired posts from previous years have included the films:
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, of course;
The Phantom of the Opera, because it’s not Halloween without Lon Chaney;
From Morn to Midnight (Von morgens bis mitternachts), the most jawdropping German Expressionist oddity you’ve never heard of;
Frankenstein (1910), the world’s first version of Shelley’s tale;
Faust (1926), a film that constantly fills me with awe;
