London After Midnight (1927)

 

After a rich man is murdered, his house is believed to be inhabited by mysterious and fearsome figures with sharp teeth and dead eyes

Icon of the silent horror screen, Lon Chaney made his grand genre swan song in Hollywood’s first vampire movie. Unfortunately lost to time, this is the Grail of silent cinema as no prints have survived. However many photographs and title cards did and have been assembled into a narrative gallery in Chaney’s film collection.
