Quite by accident, we chose to review Vampyr (1932) first, as we had originally decided on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931). However, our inability to properly read dates correctly proved fruitful, as Vampyr provided an excellent starting point. While I am no expert on silent film, nor have I viewed the list of ‘essentials’ that various teachers / movie sites list, I would argue that Vampyr represents the best and the worst characteristics that silent film has to offer. As Warden Walker stated, there are some terrific moments, and some of genuine horror to be held within this film that I don’t believe would be possible with contemporary cinema. Conversely, there are some moments that are excruciatingly difficult to comprehend what is going on, and there are some rough edits going on throughout the film.
