Lois Weber’s Suspense

At Syfy, friend of the Gutter Sara Century writes about Lois Weber and Philip Smalley’s Suspense (1913) and its impact on horror ever since. Lois Weber and Philip Smalley’s Suspense might only clock in at barely over ten minutes, but for the earliest run of home invasion films, it is by far the most memorable, utilizing many cutting-edge camera tricks and establishing a seriously unique visual style along the way.
