''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

If I recall it 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 m... 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.

Cesare is one creepy looking dude and Caligari is not much better. This film doesn't offer edge-of-the-seat excitement, but it d ... (more)

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"Robert Wiene’s capstone of German Expressionism envisions the world as if it were created by an insane god, all jagged edges and precipitous landscapes. The artificial stylistics complement the nefarious motivations of a murderous physician who uses a somnambulist to do his lethal dirty work. Madness seems to engulf every distorted composition. Throughout The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, innocent characters are chased through a psychologically skewed nightmare that defies logic. Here, serial murde"

"Plot: Francis, a young man, recalls in his memory the horrible experiences he and his fiancée Jane recently went through about hypnotist Dr. Caligari using a somnambulist, Cesare, to commit murders. Plot twist: Francis is actually an asylum inmate. Jane and Cesare are patients as well; Jane believes she is a queen, while Cesare is not a somnambulist but alive, quiet, and not visibly dangerous. The man Francis considers as "Dr. Caligari" is the asylum director who believes he now understands hi"
