…with an old silent film — but notice the special effects! VideoThe Insects’ Christmas (“Rozhdestvo obitateley lesa”) [The update adds the soundtrack from “Edward Scissorhands.”]

Filmmaker Ladislas Starevich was ahead of his time in creating this 1913 film — using stop-motion effects involving dead insects. Well, the dead insect thing didn’t exactly catch on, but the stop motion did (California Raisins in Claymation Christmas, anyone?).
