Bob Kick the Mischievous Kid (1903)

*** (out of 4)

aka Bob Kick, L'infant terrible

Melies plays a young kid who is quite the brat. This kid is in his room playing when a skull suddenly appears on his table. After destroying the skull the kid thinks that everything is going to be okay but soon after a man with a skull face shows up. This is a pretty interesting film from Melies as he actually does a good job playing the kid and delivers some very funny sequences including one with a hula hoop. The highlight of the film is without question the kid trying to destroy the skull, which leads to one of Melies nice magic tricks. The horror elements of a person being haunted by a skull wasn't anything new for Melies but he uses it to good causes here.
