Even More Terrifying Wednesday

Buster Keaton’s The Haunted House


The Haunted House

(Buster Keaton and Eddie Cline, 1921)

I didn’t want to do this, but some tough-guy rolled her eyes at Mickey Rooney.

The Haunted House was my introduction to Buster Keaton and made me an instant fan. It’s a “short,” about twenty minutes, and silent. Some of the jokes are really funny, and just once or twice, the special effects are surprising.

——By the way, no one should think this movie pauses just because of terrified shrieks. I remind everyone that this wasn’t my idea.

Open thread.
