London After Midnight
- Ashley P.
I would like to thank TCM and those who were involved with restructuring "London After Midnight." Just by viewing the stills taken during production in 1927 along with the music really does scare the pants off of me. If the original 1927 full print is ever found intact. This movie will once again assume it's position as the best horror movie ever made. Other horror movies do not stand a chance.
THE SCARIEST MOVIE EVER MADE
This is the scariest movie ever made. There's no comparison with anything to this, even The Exorcist. From beginning to end it has an eerie mood that never lets up. And it just keeps getting scarier and scarier. Watch it at 12AM on Halloween night. It'll send chills down your spine and give you nightmares for weeks. There's never going to be another silent film or any movie at all scarier than this. Someone find the original copy, restore it, and show it on TV once it's ready.
LON CHANEY LIVES!
- Ray Pienta
Many thanks to TCM and Rick Schmidlin for reconstructing the 1927 horror classic, London After Midnight. This lost film reconstruction will once again be shown on TCM on Halloween, 2012. As a fan of Lon Chaney, I own many dvds of his silent movies. Since I was a kid, I have wanted to see and own London After Midnight. Now, thanks to TCM, that is once again possible. It's creepy and very-well reconstructed. The score and titles make this 47-minute gem well-worth any classic movie fan's time. I can only hope that someday a copy of the film is found. Until that day, the TCM/Schmidlin reconstructed version is a more-than-adequate substitute. I am so looking forward to seeing it, again. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
Bless you, Rick Schmidlin
Creepy. Kooky. If you think it isn't possible to make chicken salad from you-know-what, check out the TCM reconstruction of the lost silent classic "London After Midnight" from 1927. Using only still photos, Rick Schmidlin manages to capture the essence of what the most sought-after "missing film" of Chaney's ouevre. Let's hope it's a Halloween tradition for years to come ...

The Greatest Movie I've Never Seen
- Lundy After Midnight
No one would be more delighted than me to see an actual print of "London After Midnight", should one surface. In the meantime I'm not disapointed with TCM's photographic reconstruction. I would rather have it than not. I watch it regularly, and I'm grateful to everyone involved in the project. Lundy After Midnight
I understand Turner pieced together a bunch of publicity photos with a soundtrack and is tricking people to tune in...that's nice for us Universal fans...but if I did not know this and sat down to see a filnm thought to be lost and then found... and I strated watching Stills I would be pretty dogone diappointed. I own a lot of stills already and I can turn on my freekin stereo. If I have been misinformed... someone please contact me or post a message. I have been all over the net and that is what I have found. I was bouncing off the walls when I first heard of this!
