The Red Spectre (1907)

In this 1907 classic silent film, a magician attempts to perform his act in a strange grotto, but is confronted by a spirit who opposes him. Some have said that The Red Spectre was referenced by the Zodiac Killer in his letters which would make him a cinema buff. A weird connection and weird early cinema.
