Topic: Horror History: The 1895-2013 Compilation List

I know that lists are probably a little overdone on HM, but what the heck. They're fun and people seem to enjoy doing them.

So, without further ado, here's the object of this experiment:

Name at least one horror film (you may list several if you so choose) from each individual year from the late 19th, to the 20th and 21st Centuries. This thread will require some Googling, unless you are a master with memorizing dates and films. If you cannot find a film from the year you have been left with, just write something like, "No horror films produced in this year" and we'll move on. Sound alright?

I'll start.

1895 - The Execution of Mary Stewart (produced by Thomas Edison, with a running time of 18 seconds).

Here's the film (if anyone is interested): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RpNQJV8KblQ

Your Turn....1896?

Re: Horror History: The 1895-2013 Compilation List

Did you mean you were going after '03, or are you telling us it's next up?
Just want to be clear before I post something you're already working on.

Re: Horror History: The 1895-2013 Compilation List

I saw you had a list for 03...

I meant 03 was next on the list, not for me specifically.

Re: Horror History: The 1895-2013 Compilation List

I'm out of the game for now.  I can't think of any more films off the top of my head 'til we get to the 1920s. lol

Re: Horror History: The 1895-2013 Compilation List

THE BLOODSTONE (1908) – A gothic horror story about an accursed ring that brings discord, violence, terror and death to everyone who possesses it.  Lubin Studios produced this little gem (sorry).

DR JEKYLL AND MR HYDE (1908) – This very first film version of the Robert Louis Stevenson story was a slimmed- down presentation of a stage adaptation of the time. Selig Polyscope Company produced this 13 minute classic, which is also the oldest known American-made horror film. The name of the actor playing Jekyll and Hyde has not come down to us and does not show in the credits.

THE DOCTOR’S EXPERIMENT (1908) – A mad scientist injects human guinea pigs with extracts of monkey glands. The unfortunate victims begin to devolve and display the behavioral characteristics of monkeys. (Don’t go there … or there, either.) 10 minutes long.

THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW (1908) – This 14 minute flick was the very first film adaptation of the famous Washington Irving story about the Headless Horseman.

FEATHERTOP (AKA LORD FEATHERTOP) (1908) – The first film version of the Nathaniel Hawthorne tale about a witch who brings a scarecrow to life to do her bidding against the townspeople she loathes.

THE MONKEY MAN (1908) – A mad scientist transplants a monkey’s brain into a human being’s body with predictable results.

THE SNOWMAN (1908) – A snowman comes to life with much more sinister motives than Frosty the snowman ever had.

THE SPECTRE (1908) – 8 minute Pathe short about a cobbler being haunted by the ghost of a man he murdered.

SPIRITUALISTIC SEANCE (1908) – 5 minute film about a seance and the unholy spirits conjured up by the ritual.

THE THIEVING HAND (1908) – In this film with a pioneering premise an artificial hand develops a life of its own, bringing horror to its owner. Vitagraph gave us this 5 minute long piece

just found these on google, a few i need to check out as well.

sorry i forgot 1908 the dolls revenge, sorry guys.

1910

Re: Horror History: The 1895-2013 Compilation List

1910 the first version of "Frankenstein" starring Charles Ogle

http://youtu.be/TcLxsOJK9bs

Re: Horror History: The 1895-2013 Compilation List

I'm trying to find a 1911 horror movie but can't come up with one, I'll keep looking around though.

Re: Horror History: The 1895-2013 Compilation List

oh that early frankenstein scares the hell out of me.

Re: Horror History: The 1895-2013 Compilation List

Love the early Frankenstein, even bought a dvd of it. I'd love to get a collection of all these old clips. I know you can get a Melies DVD collection but they ain't cheap.

A few more for 1910 (though I could find no mopre videos):
Museum Spooks
The Bride of Haunted Castle
The Detachable Man
The Queen of Spades

1911:
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Death
Notre Dame de Paris
The Witch of Seville

No videos for this year either, though I did find one Youtube vid with pictures from Notre Dame de Paris: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXEPM9ZvDx8
