The Devil’s Castle (1896) - Georges Melies

The movie has been known by a variety of alternate names, including The Devil's Manor, The Manor of the Devil, The House of the Devil, and The Haunted Castle, though the latter is incorrectly attributed as "The Haunted Castle" is the name of a different movie by Melies, filmed 1 year later.
