The Early Days of Cinema

The history of world cinema spans more than 100 years from the mid 19th century to the present day. No other art form has undergone such rapid development in such a short period of time. Cinema has since evolved into a highly developed medium that communicates, educates, and entertains audiences around the world. Cinema has substantially affected popular culture, social development, the arts, technology, and politics.

 

The idea of creating motion pictures developed from experiments conducted by photographers and scientists in the 19th century. However, the concept of projecting images onto screens is much older. The medieval camera obscura is considered a precursor to modern cinema technology. The camera obscura inverts light through a small hole or lens and projects this light onto a screen. This method creates a projected moving image, but the image cannot be recorded or preserved.  

 

The first known recorded celluloid film was “Roundhay Garden Scene”, which was filmed by Louis Le Prince on October 14th 1888. It was recorded at 12 frames per second and runs for approximately two seconds. Inventors quickly realized that recording imagery with a camera was feasible, but a better camera had to be developed.

 

The first truly successful apparatus was the Kinetograph, which was patented in 1891, under the direction of the inventor Thomas Alva Edison. Edison Laboratories is also credited with creating the first celluloid strips. Celluloid strips were created from celluloid blocks, which were thinly sliced and coated with photosensitive gelatin emulsion. Some of the experimental film sequences produced by Edison Laboratories can be seen on archival sites that allow free streaming movies online.

Soon, simple vaudeville shows and music hall performances were being filmed and shown to the public. A significant number of these classic film sequences can be seen on sites that offer free streaming movies online. These early film sequences were projected in kinetoscope parlors, which spread all over the western world. Charles Francis Jenkins is credited with creating the first film projector.

 

At the same time, the Lumière brothers invented the cinematograph, which was an improved version of earlier camera and projector prototypes. This paved the way for the first ambitious films that encompassed storylines, histrionics, and numerous set changes. An outstanding masterpiece from this period is “A Trip to the Moon”, directed by Georges Méliès, which can be seen on many sites that offer free streaming movies online.

Top Ten Horror Movies For Halloween

Horror as a genre is gradually making its way back into the mainstream. As Halloween slowly draws closer – the perfect time to release a new horror flick – I thought I’d take a look at the best films the genre has seen.

10. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (original) It had to be on here, theres simply no doubt about it. Tobe Hooper’s cult classic shook the world up when it was released and cost just $ 140K to produce. A group of unheard-of actors basically get chopped up by a chainsaw-wielding cannibal by the name of Leatherface. If you haven’t seen it yet, get yourselves down to Blockbusters tonight and be prepared for a blood bath.

9. The Shining Originally written by horror powerhouse Stephen King, and converted for the screen by Kubrick (I love that man), The Shining is a chilling tale of a father possessed by an evil spirit in an isolated hotel. As is the case with all Kubrick films, the cinematography is stunning. A feeling of unease descends upon you about ten minutes into the film and refuses to budge until the credits at the end. Again, a must see.

8. Planet Terror I’m not sure if this counts as horror, but it’s got zombies in it, so that’s enough for me. Released as part of the Tarantino/Rodriguez Grindhouse series in 2007, the film is pure class, if not for everyone. Cheesy one-liners, litres of blood and a girl with a gun for a leg are three points that all make this film worthy of being in my top ten. Oh yeah; it’s got Bruce Willis in too.

7. The Blair Witch Project The Marmite of the film world. You either love the intimacy of this indy flick, or you can’t stand the constantly-shaking camera and the snot scene. But the reason this film is so good is that it plays on your imagination in ways that Jeepeers Creepers et al. don’t. You never see the ‘monster’ in the Blair Witch Project, which is, quite simply brilliant. Thanks Myrick and Sanchez, you did it.
6. The Omen (original) Again, not one that will on many people’s top tens, but as a teenager, this film really grabbed me as I sat there and watched on an old black and white TV late one evening. It was the dog that did it. That and the chilling photos developed by Roy Boyd that depicted how each person was going to die.

5. SAW Yes, here it is – the original film that started a legacy of films and inspired a ride at Thorpe Park. Saw was rather iconic as we all sat and watched Jigsaw play his sordid and sadistic games with people who he deemed to have messed up their lives with their own grubby actions. A clever (if a little predictable) twist made the film stand out from the crowd and certainly put in on people’s radars. 4. Eden Lake I only watched this film recently and was pleasantly surprised. Directed by James Watkins and starring the little one from This Is England, Eden Lake plays on the very real threat of unruly knife-wielding hoodies and what they are capable of when left to their own devices. After a mediocre start, the film bursts into action and ticks all the right boxes in terms of suspense, horror and nail-biteability. Quite simply, a must-see.

3. Event Horizon Horror or sci-fi? Event Horizon bridges the gap between the two genres and tells the story of a ship that has travelled through a black hole and back. It turns out the ship has been to some sort of hell and is now the residence of a devil-like being that feeds on fear. Very atmospheric and very tense throughout and well worth a spot in the top three.

2. The Human Centipede Tom Six you are one messed up individual. Quite how you came up with the idea for this I’ll never know, but it is, quite simply one of the sickest movies I have ever seen, complete with poor porn-movie acting to boot. If you haven’t heard anything of this film, go and google it now. Bucket at the ready.

1. Paranormal Activity This is my list, so I’ll decide what’s at the top. And Paranormal Activity certainly deserves its place at the top as being one of the only films to have ever sent a shiver down my spine. Another indie flick, Paranormal Activity cost just $ 15K to make, only stars a handful of actors, and plays on your subconscious mind throughout. Like the Blair Witch Project, you never actually see the monster, only the effect of its actions. There’s a sequel out this Halloween which so far looks pretty good. Here’s hoping it doesn’t follow in the BWP’s footsteps by making the sequel nothing short of an embarrassment.

Jon is a horror movie enthusiast and is looking forward to Halloween 2010, and the best Halloween events in London.
