Das verwunschene Haus
(The Haunted House)

The Haunted House is a 1921 short comedy film starring comedian Buster Keaton. It was written and directed by Keaton and Edward F. Cline. The runtime is 21 minutes. One of the more memorable sequences of the film involves bank teller Buster spilling glue all over his counter, reminiscent of a scene in his first film The Butcher Boy.

Buster Keaton is a bank teller who becomes involved in a hold-up, counterfeiters, and a theatrical troupe posing as spooks in a haunted house. The film ends with a famous sequence of Keaton ascending to heaven, and then descending to Hades.

"An unquestionable highlight of this year's festival was the Ciné Concert of silent shorts from the 1920s accompanied by original scores performed by the Prima Vista stringquartet. [The musicians], led by viola player and composer Baudime Jam, play exquisitely and make the most of the contrast between their black tie demeanor and the artfully calibrated havoc on screen."
