The Phantom Carriage DVD
One of the great films of the silent era. It's set on New Year's Eve, when three drunkards evoke the legend of the phantom carriage, which tells that the last person to die in the year, if he is a great sinner, will spend the following year driving the carriage that picks up the souls of the dead. One of the three men, David Holm, played by Sjostrom himself, dies at the very last stroke of midnight... With magical special effects, Sjostrom evokes a world of shadows and crafts a tale of repentance and a love wasted through alcohol. Limited Edition release with soundtrack by KTL; Specially created artwork by Stephen O'Malley; Film notes by the Quay Brothers.
