Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, The

Director: Robert Weine


Considered to be one of the first true examples of Expressionism in the cinema, Robert Weine’s 1919 classic had a great influence on German films for the next decade and on horror films in general. The storyoabout a hypnotist who uses a somnambulist to do his murdersois a classic sampling of Expressionist paronia, full of the gloom and fear that prevailed in German as it emerged from World War I.
Germany, 1919. Black and white with colour tints. 73 mins.
