Day 19: 30 Days of Halloween - London after Midnight
I love this images from this lost piece of film history. If you aren't familiar, London After Midnight (1927) is a silent mystery film with horror overtones. The film stars Lon Chaney. It is also a lost film, quite possibly the most famous and eagerly-sought of all lost films. The last known copy was destroyed in a fire in an MGM film vault in 1967.It is also known as The Hypnotist.
"The abandoned home of a wealthy man who supposedly committed suicide five years earlier is taken over by ghoulish figures - could they be vampires?"
