The birth of the cinema looks like the footage was taken inside the womb of some alien creature who is now bringing forth numerous uncanny children.

what the heck was that???????

Creepier than the Romero version?

Shows that Le Prince was way ahead of Edison. Watch "Leeds Bridge 1888" and see who really invented the motion picture.
