Goddess of Hellfire Strikes Again — Nine Scary Old Movies

Notice of this one came courtesy of movie-lover GODDESS OF HELLFIRE (see April 23, January 9), “9 Terrifying Old Movies that Put Modern Horror to Shame” by Michael Daye via CRACKED.COM.  These are very old, ranging from Thomas Edison’s 1895 eighteen-second depiction of THE EXECUTION OF MARY STUART to the Italian short IL CASO VALDEMAR,302330_v1 based on the Edgar Allan Poe story “The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar” in 1936.  And by golly I even have one of them in my own collection, number seven in the lineup THE MAN WHO LAUGHS (1928) which — and I didn’t know this — was reportedly the inspiration for favorite Batman villain The Joker.  That is, speaking of Batman (cf. “Matches,” May 1). . . .
