Horror Scenes that I Love: The Devil Eats A Soul in L’Inferno (dir by Francesco Bertolini, Adolfo Padovan, and Giuseppe De Liguoro)


Today’s horror scene that I love comes from the 1911 film, L’Inferno. This silent film is not only considered to be the first Italian feature film but it was also the first Italian horror film. Based on Dante’s Divine Comedy, the film took three years to make and was a hit with audiences. It made two million at the box office, an unheard of amount of money in 1911.

In this scene, Dante and Virgil observe the devil eating a sinner’s soul.
