"Premonition Following an Evil Deed" is an American 1-minute short film from 1995, but if you take a look at it, then you can also make a statement for this being a movie from 1895 because it is in black-and-white and, despite it being an English-language film according to IMDb, there is no spoken or written language in here. It is probably director David Lynch's tribute to the very early days of filmmaking and as such it is a fairly dark movie in terms of the subject. Nothing uncommon for Lynch. But I also do believe that without his name attached to the project, this would be a relatively forgotten film now over 2 decades later. It is also one of Lynch's least known (short) filmmaking efforts. There is just nothing really memorable to it other than the imitation aspect of what Méliès and others did a century earlier. Not a failure I guess, but also not worth seeing for anybody other than Lynch completionists. I give it a thumbs-down.
