A Roadside Inn
21 March 2010 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Roadside Inn, A (1906)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

aka L'hôtel des voyageurs de commerce ou les suites d'une bonne cuite

Strange mixture of horror and slapstick as a man checks into a hotel where some of the other folks staying there decide to scare him by placing a demon like figure in his bed that will jump out once he goes to get it. This is a somewhat interesting film from Melies as his camera stays still (like always) but it captures half of the man's room and the other half is covering everything that's going on in the hall. This adds something original to the film and I must admit that I found this to be the most interesting thing here. What didn't work overly well was the comedy as it never really materialized and the "joke" just wasn't funny.
