Butterfly caught...
10 April 2012 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

This is a slightly nightmarish short from Georges Méliès. In it a magician creates a butterfly woman and then a spider woman. This malignant being threatens to wreak havoc but is repelled in an explosion.

Like others this one is colour tinted which definitely adds a lot to the aesthetic. It also has a much more macabre and creepy feel than other Méliès fantasy shorts although it is at heart still a magic show. It's quite bizarre really. The other commentators have mentioned that this is only a section of a larger film. No matter, what remains is like a fragment of a weird dream you can half remember.
