Critic Reviews for SchloÃ Vogeloed, (The Haunted Castle)
[This] film is very much like being trapped at a party where no one is enjoying himself; all you can do is sit there, looking at the clock and imagining how soon you can make an excuse to get away.
Once we get past the fact that this is not Nosferatu, it has its own share of striking moments.
The Haunted Castle makes the viewer wait in a state of anticipation for something to resonate on screen--and it feels positively endless.
Audience Reviews for SchloÃ Vogeloed, (The Haunted Castle)
Early Murnau provides us with a slowpaced horror movie with barely any horror nor thrills. The story itself is neither to embrace. Thus those faces from the silent era which only the "europeans" can make, do shine here.
I was so confused by this movie, but I think it's partly the fault of the people who tried to restore it, it doesn't look so good. The actors weren't very good either, the story is odd, and there wasn't much to look at. This looks like it could have been an interesting movie at least, but it needs to be restored better.
