    Horror was a story genre long before movies even existed. People have told horror stories for centuries, and some of the earliest known myths and legends contain an element of horror. The first horror movie ever produced was a French film called Le Manoir du Diable, from 1896. Its comparatively tame by today's standards, but was cutting egde at the time of release.
