THE HAUNTED CASTLE (1896)
Director: Georges Méliès
Writer: Georges Méliès
Starring: Jeanne d'Alcy, Jules-Eugène Legris, Georges Méliès
Genre: Haunted House
One of the earliest examples of horror on film comes from the imagination of Georges Méliès. Clocking in at a little over 3 minutes, Méliès packs a lot into the single shot short film. A bat bursts through a window in a castle and transforms into Mephistopheles. What follows is a series of in-camera magic tricks as the devil conjures up a series of supernatural creatures.
