The Vampire (1913)Country: UKCompany: SearchlightI thought they had this one on IMDB, but on closer inspection, they
have another movie by the same name in the same year, but it's an
American film from Kalem.
Vampire of the Desert (1913)Directed by Charles L. GaskillFeaturing Helen Gardner, Tefft Johnson, Harry T. MoreyCountry: USACompany: VitagraphMy references refer to the woman casting a hypnotic spell over a man,
but given the tendency of 'vampires' of this era turning out to be femme
fatales, I wonder just how literally the hypnotic spell should be
Vasco, the Vampire (1914)Featuring Matty RoubertCountry: USACompany: Independent Moving PicturesFor some reason, the title gave me a little hope that we'd have a real
authentic vampire here, though the comedy classification on IMDB didn't
really give me hope that it was to be taken too seriously. However, I
can only conclude from the info in the Willis and Lee guides that Vasco
is more of a vampire in the sense of Louis Feuillade's LES VAMPIRES than
one of the blood-sucking variety.
Vengeance of the Dead (1910)Country: FranceCompany: Pathe

My notes say "lost" according to a number of sources: Overlook, Jules Verne on Film by Thomas
Renzi, Magliozzi, and an email from Luke McKernan (British film historian) from
across the pond. About all that anyone will perhaps ever find on it is in
Robert W. Paul's 'Christmas Supplement' catalogue of
1903...excepting for a few non-genre Captain Kettle tales here and there. The supplement does have a decent
sized synopsis and a good dozen thumbnail (for lack of a better word) scenes
from the picture.

Wave of Spooks (1908)Country: FranceCompany: Pathe
Voyage to the Moon (1906)Directed by Romeo BosettiCountry: FranceCompany: GaumontCommentary:
This one is so obscure that I wonder if its having ever existed may be
doubtful; the Willis guide is the only one I've found that has it
listed. There's nothing on IMDB or CITWF (at least under this name),
and it doesn't appear in the Walt Lee book at all. I assume it's one of
the imitations of Melies's A TRIP TO THE MOON. I'm classifying its
survival status as Unknown.

The White Spectre (1914)Company: GeneralCommentary:
Here's another rarity; there's no info under this title on IMDB or
CITWF, and the lack of a country of origin certainly doesn't help
things. The ghost is apparently part of a scheme to break up a group of
blackmailers. I'm classifying this one as Unknown.
