the first horror film

here’s some Halloween trivia: the first horror film was released in 1896, and directed by early cinema icon Georges Méliès. it’s called The Manor Of The Devil. although it’s short on plot (and time; it runs about 3 minutes) it’s still an honorable mention in film history as it’s considered one of the first movies to utilize special effects (a staple of horror films for decades) to scare and delight its viewers. happy Halloween!
