Fun Size Review: Behind the Door (1919)

This movie… is a lot. Hobart Bosworth plays a sea captain and taxidermist on a mission of revenge and let’s just say that both his skills come into play.

Much as I like trash cinema, this one crossed a few lines for me but your mileage may vary. Certainly one of the more shocking titles of the silent era. Unavailable in a complete form for years but now released to the public in a new restoration with most of the footage intact and the gorgeous original tinting scheme reinstated.

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

Wallace Beery murders Bosworth’s wife, Bosworth runs into him much later and skins him alive. Not a metaphor.

If it were a dessert it would be: Habanero Lime Cheesecake. Just know what you’re getting yourself into.

Availability: Released on DVD and Bluray by Flicker Alley.
