The Haunted House (La maison ensorcelée)



Hey gang, sorry for interrupting Horrorthon but I wanted you all to check out this amazing 6-minute silent haunted house movie from 1908.  The FX including a lot of stop motion are very impressive.  Could this be the first "horror" movie?

Jeez, the whole "white people not leaving a house when it's obvious they should" goes back a long ways, doesn't it?

I was gonna say the scariest part was when we got a closeup on the makeup jobs of our three players, but then that guy showed up at the end.
