Storyline

Poor Uncle Josh is trying to get to sleep, but being constantly bedeviled by a fellow in red long underwear with horns. A short early trick editing film using a stationary camera much more valuable for its historical, rather than entertainment value. Written by bughouse

Uncle Josh takes on Satan!
19 February 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Uncle Josh (Charles Manley) was one of the first film character stars--as he appeared three times in Edison films. In this installment, Uncle Josh is being bedeviled by Satan--who keeps appearing and disappearing in his room. Eventually, Uncle Josh becomes so frustrated, he knocks the Devil out, ties him up and stuffs him into a hope chest! Now considering this IS the Prince of Darkness, this seems like too easy a solution and you can watch this to see if Josh prevails.

This is a cute little film--probably the best of the Uncle Josh films. While the movie isn't brilliant, it makes nice use of stop-motion and is kind of funny. Not one to rush to see but worth it for cinemaniacs who love very early cinema.
