MAISON ENSORCELÉE, LA
Other title(s):MAISON DES LUTINS, LA
Description:Two men and a woman are out walking in the woods when a storm suddenly blows up and they decide to take shelter in a house that turns out to be haunted. The objects inside the house come to life and it is haunted by ghosts who terrorize the people. A film made during Chomón's time at Pathé (1905-1910) with sequences that demonstrate his use and mastery of the stop-motion or frame-by-frame filming technique in the animation of the objects, which is employed to work in parallel to the narrative.
