1st Horror and Vampire Film

The Devil’s Castle (1896) – Georges Melies

The Devil’s Castle (aka Le manoir du diable), by Georges Méliès, is considered to be the first horror film, and arguably the first vampire film. The movie has been known by a variety of alternate names, including The Devil’s Manor, The Manor of the Devil, The House of the Devil, and The Haunted Castle, though the latter is incorrectly attributed as “The Haunted Castle” is the name of a different movie by Melies, filmed 1 year later.

Music performed by Billy Duncan for Change Before Going Productions.
