This week, join Megan, some murderers, evil despots, and… Shirley Temple? to explore the beginnings of horror film history with the Silent Film Era. Silent films can be challenging for modern moviegoers, but they are rich with innovation and glimpses of what’s to come. Check out some of Megan’s favorites and learn more about why horror movies are important to talk about in the first place.
Many of the films she talks about this week can be found online. Start with the British Film Institute’s list of 10 Great Silent Horror Films.
