Horror movies often show flickering of lights and slamming doors to signify presence of supernatural, ghosts and etc.

Which was the first color movie to use this trope?

    It is used in Nosferatu, 1922. – Chenmunka Nov 17 '17 at 12:00

    @Chenmunka - given the state of projector technology and the electrical grid in 1922, how would an audience know that the flickering was actually part of the movie? :D – PoloHoleSet Nov 17 '17 at 17:29
  • @PoloHoleSet: Good point. Edited my question. – Rahul Nov 18 '17 at 6:18
