    First, don't go down the comments due to a major spoiler. Now having that said, I have to agree with others who said this is not their favorites. It's however an easy 8/10. Contradictory I know, but this movie pioneering and really clever twist influenced so many filmmakers, also when watching this in pitch blackness and headphones several moments sent chills down my spine, only because of the music, the make up and the ambient...So good? Yes. Classic? Yes! However... I think most of us agree that this film has not aged very well. 7 years 3 months ago

    Twisted, but also hilarious. It obviously was much more disturbing in 1920 than it is now. On the other hand, the film is more innovative and bombastic visually than pretty much anything contemporary cinema has to offer. A superb match of form and content. 7 years 2 months ago
