GAS Films short silent film The Haunted Castle out of Great Britain is supplementary to a French classic called Le Manior Du Diable. What I don't understand about this follow up or potential rip off is why George Albert Smith didn't add anything creative or new. I feel like he was trying to pay homage to Melies's House of the Devil but it was a shorter film without the story. I feel silly hating on a movie from 1897, which I know sounds a little irrational but after watching the flick and doing a little research online I'm still confused at these points. I suggest checking out the predecessor being an original and longer film.
