Welcome To My Very Own Nightmare Theater


Halloween Happy suggested we do a throwback themed post, so here is mine.

I posted it to remind us that sometimes you don’t need to say a word to tell a scary story- case in point these early horror films.

A scene from the lost 1923 silent film BLUEBEARD’S EIGHTH WIFE. In this scene, Gloria Swanson’s character happens upon the seven hanged bodies of Bluebeard’s murdered wives. (Silent and Pre-Code Horror)

“The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” by Robert Wiene

I chose this compilation because I liked the plain and empty feel of the narrators voice.  I also  liked the choice of films.

I hope I gave your mind’s eye a little something to chew on.
