Shiver and shudder


Citation
"I am only satisfied if my spectators, shivering and shuddering, raise their hands or cover their eyes out of fear of ghosts and devils dashing towards them; if even the most indiscreet among them run into the arms of a skeleton."


So spoke Robertson (1763 - 1837; known as the Luikerwaal), a Belgian who travelled round in Europe during the first decade of the 18-th century, with his special shows in which he used many techniques solely with the aim of scaring people to death. Images representing his spectacular show are used for the animations.
