From a Georges Melies film 1906. aka. "Quatre cents farces du diable" or "400 tricks of the devil" (imdb)Paul Rumsey.
Thanks for that info, Paul. There's an early film by Meilies from around 1890? with the word devil in it, but it is supposed to be the very first horror film. I've always wanted to find it but have so far had no luck, and this is after downloading numerous Meilies collections. Hopefully a print will turn up sooner or later!
"Le manoir du diable",1896.All the info you need is on the Internet Movie Database.(imdb) A comment on that site says that the first horror film by Melies was "Un nuit terrible" which has a giant insect! Paul
tcm channel website has dvd's of Melies' works for sale if your interested.
