Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 509 ratings.
Lon Chaney gives an excellent performance with a convincing portrayal of a "cripple" and with facial expressions that convey both plot character. At times the facial expressions are exaggerated, but isn't that what makes silent films so much fun to watch? The "Shock" is a double entendre applying to both the story line and the historic setting, the latter of which the film (and the web site's description) go through great lengths to hide from sight until the end. Using the title as a double entendre has since become common (The title "Trading Places" comes to mind).
I can't comment on the sound track. I haven't heard it. I play music while I watch silent movies. And I haven't yet found the perfect music for this one.
