Damnation of Faust

Damnation Of Faust, The (1903)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

aka Faust aux enfers

The story of Faust has been told many times but leave it to Melies to bring his own magic to the familiar story. Right from the start Satan grabs Faust and forces him into hell where he is made to witness strange dances, fiery pits and a seven headed monster. This film runs just under 7-minutes and Melies spends the majority of the time showing us the downfalls of Hell and this includes a terrific looking monster, which is made up as a big head with seven, snake like heads coming out of it. This create is certainly one of the better examples of the young horror genre. Another highlight in the film is a great sequence where Satan and Faust fall down a large cave into the pits of Hell. The full power of the magic of Melies is on display here making this one of the better films from the master. A narration track is included.
