[This] adroitly atmospheric film is virtually an ideogram of narrative suspension and impact, and it's a lovely, musty, nightened place to visit.
What makes Canary sing is Leni's pioneering mix of spooky expressionism and light comedy, fabulous camera work, and nice turns from Laura La Plante, Creighton Hale, and Martha Mattox.
It is not only in actual cinematic effects that Mr. Leni's work is telling; there are sequences in the story which reveal his absolute command of the players.
Like most spoofs, it wears thin fairly quickly.
Plays with cinematic form and representation like few movies of any style have gotten away with under the aegis of a big Hollywood studio.
Moodily shot, this classic "old dark house" picture is played mostly for laughs.
Not exactly a horror film, at least by any strict definition. But it is a great deal of fun.
Stylishly well-executed old-fashioned horror-suspense thriller that's laced with a macabre humor.
Transposing the expressionist panache of Weimar cinema, Leni responded with one of the most influential classics of the Hollywood horror genre.
Leni was the first of the great expressionist German directors to go to Hollywood, and his debut film there influenced subsequent horror movies, especially at Universal Pictures.
The sort of creepy movie that is perhaps best thought of as spooky fun -- and 85 years have not changed that.
This isn't just one of those average murder mysteries where the family vies for the inheritance of the old man's will, it's actually got ghosts and a ghoulish hand creeping everyone out, and a guy who's on the look out for a maniac that escaped from the loony bin. This movie is creepy and funny, I enjoyed it, and I recommend it.
