There are many computers which are different from each other in various aspects. Classification of computers are given below.

(1) Micro computers: These computers use a microprocessor chip and this chip is used instead of CPU means that this microprocessor chip works as a CPU.

These computers are also called personal computers. Two major types of these computers are laptop or Desktop computers. Only one user uses these computers at time that's why they are also known as personal computers.

(2) Mini Computers: These are powerful computer. These computers come into existence in 1960s at that time mainframe computer was very costly. Mini computers were available in cheap prices, so users start using it.

Terminals are used to connect a user to this computer and users submit there task through mainframe. Terminal is a device which has keyboard and a screen. By using terminal users put inputs into the computer and get the output through screen.

What is the title of a black and white horror film where a ventriloquist's dummies come to life and kill?

I agree it's probably Devil Doll (1964), which is on DVD. It is very similar to that episode in Dead of Night (1945) though. There is only one doll in each though, both called Hugo!YES but the one i think you mean is silent death

There is one from 2007 that is called Dead Silence and I believe it was one of those movies that was remade. It's about exactly what you described as the plot.

What is the best scary movie to watch on Halloween?

The obvious answer, of course, is John Carpenter's Halloween (1978), which was one of the very first "slasher" horror films that became ever—so—popular in the 1980s.

Other notable films in the horror genre that have given me the creeps in particular are The Birds (1963), Alien (1979), The Shining (1980), John Carpenter's The Thing (1982), It Follows (2014), The Witch (2015), Hereditary (2018), and this year's The Lighthouse.

How did Mary shaw from dead silence die?

After Mary kidnapped Jamie's great-uncle Michael when he was a child, the townspeople suspected her, and then broke into her theater where they made their way to her quarters. There, they forced her to scream, and then cut out her tongue. They don't explain how this killed her, but this was the reason, and the subsequent reason why she ripped the tongues out of all her kills.

What was the first horror movie ever made?

It is beleived that "Le Manoir de Diable" (House of the Devil) was the first horror movie.

It was filmed by Georges Melies in France in 1896.

There is a slight conflict as to which movie was the first horror film. First, "The Execution of Mary Stuart" was produced by American inventor Thomas Edison in 1895. It was only 18 seconds in length, and it depicted a woman being beheaded. In 1896, Georges Melies made "Le Manoir du diable" (The House of the Devil) which was 1-2 minutes in length and depicted Mephistopheles summoning ghosts and demons.

Longer films didn't really appear until the 1900's. The first American horror film of the 20th century is Edison Studios' version of Frankenstein, made in 1910. Though many classify Quasimodo, the hunchback of Notre Dame, as a monster and thus as a horror character, I feel his story is more of a tragic romance. If you think Quasimodo is a monster, then the first full-length horror film is Alice Guy's "Esmeralda" (1906), otherwise the first full-length horror film is from Germany, Paul Wegener's "The Golem" (1910).

Answers from other Answers contributors:

  • The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1919) was a famous silent German horror film. It is the best-known and the most influential expressionist film.
  • Nosferatu (1922) is the first best-know film to use dramatic lighting and shadows to make the scenes appear darker and set the mood for the horror scenes.
  • Is believed to be the very first "true horror" movie to be made, the monster being played by Charles Stanton Ogle.
