Review
Legend has it that whoever is the last person to die on New Year's Eve will be destined to drive the Phantom Carriage collecting dead souls for a year. When a drunkard is found at the stroke of midnight, the victim of a vicious fight, he is forced to relive his past to see how he and those around him have been destroyed by his selfish and destructive ways. Directed by pioneering Swedish film-maker Victor Sjöström "The Phantom Carriage" is arguably the most influential, especially on the legendary Ingmar Bergman, and enduring horror film of all time. Powerful acting and groundbreaking trick photography lend it an otherworldly atmosphere not since matched in modern cinema.
