The Haunted Curiosity Shop

The Haunted Curiosity Shop is a 1901 British short silent horror film, directed by Walter R. Booth, featuring an elderly curio dealer alarmed by various apparitions that appear in his shop. The film, "was clearly devised purely as a showcase for Booth and Paul's bag of tricks," and according to Michael Brooke of BFI Screenonline, "it's an effective and engrossing experience."[1]
