The Haunted Curiosity Shop is a 1901 British silent short supernatural horror film written and directed by Walter R. Booth, a pioneer of trick films. It was produced by Robert W. Paul.
The film features an elderly curio dealer alarmed by various apparitions, such as a floating skull, that appear in his shop.
” … it’s an effective and engrossing experience, as the poor shop owner is beset by all manner of apparitions: floating heads, disembodied women, Egyptian mummies and an animated skeleton…” Michael Brooke, BFI Screenonline
