Description: The Cinefamily presents a Halloween screening of this black-and-white silent classic, starring the late, great Lon Chaney as an inmate who has taken over the asylum. Predating the work of James Whale (THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN), director Roland West mixes comic relief with horror, to amusing effect.

West's biographer, USC film archivist Dino Everett, will be on hand to provide opening remarks. The feature film is preceded by the eerie 1917 silent short The Devil’s Assistant!
