Rating: 5/5 -- Using superimposition and double-exposure to bring the rickety wagon and its wretched occupants to ghostly life, The Phantom Carriage balances visual poetry with emotional violence. Full Review

Slower than death itself, but just as spine chilling, this metaphysical morality play feels less like an artefact from a different era than a wintry warning from another world. Full Review

Despite all the creepiness on display, the film ultimately affirms not the emptiness of death, but rather the importance of life. Full Review

The double-exposure photography used throughout is a stupefying achievement of its own, an incantation of overlapping worlds and a visualization of the characters' growing awareness of the connection between body and soul. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

Based on Selma Lagerlof's rendition of a Swedish folktale, this moody, surrealistic drama takes its title from Death's favorite mode of transport, which must be driven by the last sinner to die before year's end. Victor Sjostrom both directed and stared in this film, fashioning a supernatural morality tale replete with atmospheric lighting and superimposition effects that were ahead of their time in 1920 and still chill today. He plays David Holm, a beliigerent drunkard who must contend with past misdeeds of pettiness and alcoholism as he gathers the souls of the dead. Will he roam the roads forever as a ghostly driver or achieve salvation beyond Death's spectre?

This disc includes the original Swedish edit: Korkarlen a.k.a. The Phantom Carriage and the Metro edit for America, released as The Stroke of Midnight. (each run 70 minutes)
