Episode Notes

The history of horror movies continues with this second episode of Horrid. In this companion piece to episode one, Doc Manson further explores the works of Georges Méliès, the creator of the first horror film, The House of the Devil (Le Manoir du Diable). Synopses are provided for The Haunted Castle (Le Château Hanté) and A Terrible Night (Une Nuit Terrible). Doc dives deep into these films, correcting common misconceptions and misattributions found online. Also explored is evidence from Pauline Méliès, Georges Méliès’ great-great-granddaughter, which suggests that A Terrible Night might not actually be the film it is claimed to be.
