First 'Horror' Movie in Theaters

In keeping with my Halloween movie theme, here is the first 'horror' movie that played in theaters for an audience, in 1895 - Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat (The Lumiere Brothers). Apparently the audience completely panicked and ran out of the theater because they thought the train was actually going to hit them.

Imagine seeing that for the first time as new technology. Wow.
