Possibly the oldest extant Georges Méliès film concerning any kind of horror or fantasy element, this brief piece involves a stocking-capped slumberer troubled by a huge bed bug (not as huge as the David Cronenberg cockroach it vaguely resembles but big enough). The creature crawls over the man's sheets, presumably aided by invisible wires, and is finally dispatched. - Brian Darr

Wonderful! One of the hardest things to do is to make a one minute film that feels totally resolved, and leaves you feeling satisfied, but this one totally did that for me.
The road to "Talent" is not a road, but a ladder of experience. I think this films shows just that. For that and other reasons I love it.
It is good to know that chamber pots were also useful for storing cat-sized bedbugs you killed at night.
More like a comical night. Very amusing.
The short film was hilarious! The music was perfect. Wish it could have been longer.
