Yep, it’s October which means it’s time for the usual countdown to All Hallows Eve. This year, rather than trying to do a full 31 film reviews or something truly time-consuming like that, most of what I’m going to be posting are favorite trailers, short films, some full-length movies, and other items just to kind of help get everyone in the spirit of what really is one of my favorite holidays.
Today we move up 10 years from yesterday’s post to watch The Golem from 1920. Actually, the full title of this movie is The Golem: How He Came Into the World, and although it’s actually a prequel to the other two, it was actually the third of three Golem films made by director Werner Wegener. The other two silents, 1915’s The Golem, and 1917’s The Golem and the Dancing Girl have unfortunately been lost. Fortunately, this one does survive, and I’ve embeded the entire film below for your enjoyment.
if you’ve got any comments on this, or any ideas for other scary bits an bobs that you’d like to see featured in the countdown, let me know either in the comments below, or over on the Durnmoose Movies Facebook page which can be found here.
