Really Good movie but not a horror film. Not even a suspense thriller. It is more of a crime revenge style of movie. Great Acting and amazing how they made Lon Chaney seem like he is missing both legs without using trick photography, must have been super painful and uncomfortable for him to move around, sit and hop to the ground int hat getup. Well worth a view.
Those complaining about the score should see the version on Blu-Ray from Kino. It is the way I saw it and it had a great score in a style that is more expected for a silent film. I liked the film a lot and found it easy to get through. I loved seeing one of Lon Cheney's early films that made him popular and he does a great job of convincing the audience that he has no legs.
Great movie, great acting, but this "horror" genre is a really stupid mistake.
