A Never Completed Film: The House at the Last Lantern

The House at the Last Lantern

“Doing some research, I happened to come across a rare cache of stills from a never completed film by Hans Richter [1888-1976] which is possibly the only example of an actual dadaist horror film. It seems the film was a parody of sorts of Goethe’s The Sorrows of Young Werther, but is ostensibly a tale of the life of Gustav Meyrink. The title of the film was to be ‘The House at the Last Lantern’.” – Lanny Quarles

Date of the movie stills unknown, possibly late 1920s. More images with story here.
