The Haunted Castle 1896

Le Manoir du Diable, released in the United States as The Haunted Castle and in Britain as The Devil's Castle, is an 1896 French short silent film directed by Georges Méliès. The film, a brief pantomimed sketch in the style of a theatrical comic fantasy, tells the story of an encounter with the Devil and various attendant phantoms. It is intended to evoke amusement and wonder from its audiences, rather than fear; however, because of its themes, it can technically be considered the first horror film, and (because it includes a transformation involving a bat) even the first vampire film.
