Eerie Tales – Unheimliche Geschichten (1919)

There is a silent horror film directed and produced by Richard Oswald, featuring Conrad Veidt. Unlike the 1932 Unheimliche Geschichten this was an anthology film combining five stories framed by a narrative set in a book shop (a technique later used for Paul Leni’s Waxworks). Portraits of a Strumpet, Death, and the Devil come to life and amuse themselves by reading stories – about themselves, of course, in various guises and eras. The stories used were: The Black Cat; The Suicide Club; Anselme Heine’s Die Erscheinung; co-scripter Robert Liebmann’s Die Hand; and Oswald’s own Der Spuk. It was considered a lost film. However, surviving prints of the film were edited together in Europe and shown as a whole feature at the annual Luminato arts festival in Toronto in June 2009. Full Movi
