A Halloween You Tube Mystery

There is some controversy over whether tinted film above is actually British film maker George Albert Smith's 1897 remake of the 1896 black and white Melies film below or not.  The main confusion seems to come in with the title card on the above remastered film showing Melies film studio stamp, but this could be have been added later by some mistake or other.  They don't look the same to me!  Either way they represent two of the very earliest horror films every made.  Happy Spooks!!
