The Movie: The Phantom Carriage (1921)
What Is It?: On New Year’s Eve, the Grim Reaper makes the rounds in his creaky carriage to collect souls and find a replacement for himself for the following year. A creepy showcase for early horror special effects.
Why Today?: Today is New Year’s Eve. Maybe tonight will be your night to replace the reaper. Enjoy drinking your champagne and blowing your kazoo!
