Directed by Tamas Fejer
Featuring Miklos Gabor, Beata Tyskiewicz, Ivan Andonov
Listed In The Motion Picture Guide by Jay Robert Nash and Stanley Ralph Ross
Fantastic content: Cryogenics, Post-apocalyptic world
Commentary: People awake from a cryogenic sleep to discover a world devastated by nuclear war. However, instead of an action movie where they take on mutants, they instead discover how they all played a role in causing the nuclear war, which is certainly a different idea. I'd be curious to see this one, but I haven't been able to find it, and if I do, it would probably be without English subtitles. It has a handful of votes on IMDB, but no user comments. I'm classifying its survival status as Unknown.

The title character is possessed by the soul of a vengeful ancient
Egyptian princess. I assume this is some deadly beetle of some sort;
otherwise, I could think of more useful animals to possess if you're

The god Siva rescues a girl from the devil at one point. This one is
late enough in the game that it my have a better chance of surviving,
but the lack of votes or detail on IMDB doesn't bode well.

However, it's from Spain, and it looks like the plot involves a child who is taken by three witches to a haunted house from which there is no escape. I'm classifying its survival status as Unknown.

Dave Sindelar wrote:The Cactus Cure (1925)Directed by Ward HayesFeaturing Dick Hatton, Yakima Canutt, Wilbur McGaughCountry: USACompany: Ben Wilson ProductionsFantastic content: "Haunted" houseCommentary: Take note of the quotes. Also note that IMDB classifies it as a Comedy / Western. Also note that one of the keywords on IMDB is "New York City". So we have a western that has something to do with haunted houses and New York City. Yes, I'm curious.

Convicted by Hypnotism (1912)aka Double vieDirected by Victorin-Hippolyte JassetFeaturing Charles Krauss, Josette Andriot, Cecile GuyonCountry: FranceCompany: EclairCommentary:
The story involves a doctor who uses hypnotism on his wife to perform a
robbery of his father-in-law, which results in the latter's death. The
mystery is solved by another hypnotist.
The Dancing Beetle (1915)Directed by Edmund LawrenceFeaturing Richard CarleCountry: USACompany: World Comedy Star FilmFantastic content: Insect's bite causes victim to dance.Commentary:
Just looking at the title, I thought the beetle would dance, which
would make it the subject for a Starewicz film. As it is, I suppose if
you're going to be bit by the dancing bug, it's better than getting ants
in your pants.
The Devil's Elixir (1920)aka Elixiere des TeufelsDirected by Edmund LöweFeaturing Karl Elfeld, Maria Mankoni, Julius StroblCountry: AustriaCompany: Hugo-Held-FilmCommentary:
This is based on an E.T.A. Hoffmann story. I don't know how closely
the movie follows the original, but the story involved doppelgangers and
a 'devil's potion' of some sort. Someone is credited with playing the
devil in the movie.
