A Spectre Haunts Europe (Russian: Призрак бродит по Европе, Prizrak brodit po Evrope) is a 1923 Soviet silent horror film directed by Vladimir Gardin. It was made by the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic's production company VUFKU. It is based on Edgar Allan Poe's story The Masque of the Red Death. The film features a massacre on the Odessa Steps which may have served as an inspiration for the more famous scene in Sergei Eisenstein's Battleship Potemkin.

The film's sets were designed by the art director Vladimir Yegorov.
