From Far Out:
George Méliès, a French illusionist and film director, is widely credited as the pioneer of the earliest known technical and narrative developments in the formation of cinema.
Méliès, well-known for his use of special effects, created Le Manoir du diable or The House of the Devil, the 1896 French short silent film which is technically considered to be the first horror film ever created. Running for three minutes, the film was also considered highly ambitious for its time and pioneered longer format films. Interestingly, because the plot includes the transformation of a human turning into a bat, many historians have also considered the short film to be the first vampire film in history.
