Ratings & Reviews

  1. Andre's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    A bit creaky here and there. but Barrymore's Hyde is a genuinely upsetting villain to watch: his direct to camera stare is viscerally disgusting

  2. Aardsy's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    I reacted poorly to my first boner, too.

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    Une phénoménale interprétation de John Barrymore dépassant en investissement et en folie les (excellentes) compositions ultérieures de Fredric March ou Spencer Tracy, pour une œuvre maîtresse du cinéma fantastique des années 1920... www.cinefiches.com

  4. Kamran's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    Efficiently paced with a booming score and hauntingly dramatic turn from John Barrymore. 83/100 - Great.

  5. msmichel's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    John Barrymore makes a memorable Jekyll/Hyde in this silent take on the oft filmed Robert Louis Stevenson classic. Handsome production with an undertone of perversion and vice made memorable by Barrymore's dedication.

  6. SpacePirate's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    Excellent silent horror. Best part: when Barrymore's fake finger flies off

  7. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

  8. hideloveaway's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    It's a testament to the film and John Barrymore's performance that this is still scary after all these years.

  9. jamesey's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    It's slow by today's standards, but you can easily pick out the influences it's had in the movie business.

  10. Kathryn Sutton's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    This version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde has stayed with me over the years. It has a great performance by the legendary John Barrymore and sports some beautifully illustrated title cards. The makeup for Hyde becomes increasingly grotesque and Barrymore makes Jekyll a sympathetic protagonist. I recommend it for any silent movie fan.

  11. El Biffo's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    Watchable, but not the most beautiful or compelling film of the Silent Era. The dream sequence@1:08 is cool, though.

  12. Nick Potter's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    Solid silent classic and early horror film that does much more than many modern horror films: get an actual actor. John Barrymore doesn't even need sound to carry this film, and he does so with as much vigor as his wonderful stage performances.

  13. albagazebo's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

  14. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    One dramatic classic! Could use an update on the soundtrack though.

  15. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    Lo mejor de esta versión son sus primeros momentos. Es Jekyll imaginando ese desdoblamiento de personalidad, debatiendo con un colega entre esa satisfacción de degustar el bien y el mal sin manchar su buena reputación. Es la mecánica del cinismo sobre cómo un hombre es tentado por la amoralidad. Robertson se remonta a la esencia de la novela al darle gran valor a la antesala al monstruo.La construcción de lo perverso

  16. puntozero's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    I've learn how to make a movie looking this!

  17. Django's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    It suffers from a Victorian theatricality and has neither the lasting impact of The Cabinet of Dr Caligari or the technical showmanship of Way Down East, both released the same year, but it is a must see for any fan of the silent genre. Most of that credit goes to Barrymore's bravura performance as the all too good Jekyll and the Id triumphant shambling Hyde.

  18. Ally the Manic Listmaker's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    Great performance by John Barrymore. Unreal!!
