''I must know everything. I must penetrate the heart of his secret! I must become Caligari!''

A horror film that surpasses all others. Alan relates the story of traveling magician Dr Caligari and Cesare. Their arrival in a town coincides with savage killings.

"Spirits surround us on every side... they have driven me from hearth and home, from wife and child."

Prior to F.W. Murau's Nosferatu there was Robert Weine's silent horror masterpiece Das Kabinett des Doktor Caligari (translated to the more common title; The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari). In the annals of the horror genre, these two instances of German Expressionistic cinema stand above... read more

A classic

If I recall correctly, I saw this movie when I was living in England. There, I took a movie course which I found just great. Every week we would watch a movie starting with 'Cabiria' released in 1914 (even though it is considered a classic, it was an awful 3 hours long silent epic, I think only 3 of us stayed until the end). So, we started from the very beginning of motion picture history and move... read more

Description: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari) is a silent film that was made in Germany, in 1920, and is often believed to be the first ever horror film. The story is told in flashback by a young man named Francis who is explaining to someone the events that happened when a carnival came to the mountain village of Holstenwall, bringing with it the strange and sinister Dr. Caligari along with his travelling companion, Cesare, who Caligari keeps in a box and only awakens as part of his show.

" Surrealism, horror and expressionism is put together into one excellent package. It is surely one of the most important horror movies ever put on screen and it had a surprise ending that has been stolen million of times afterwards. It is also hypnotic and the German actors are all perfect cast for this production, but you need to see it in it's most glorious and best preserved version so please skip anything else than the excellent restored HD versions that have been released in the last years."

"unfortunally, I have no idea of how much of the original footage was in the version that I watched, which was colorized and with a electronic synthetizer. But regardless, it's a great silence movie, with a story and a "creepines" ahead of it's time, especially for not being so naive as other stories told by the time."
