Synopsis

Perhaps the first requirement of a horror film is that seemingly sensible people do foolish things. And since this German silent classic is one of the first real horror films ever made, it's not surprising that the action begins with two young men going to a sinister booth at a fair and not belting off at full speed after meeting the creepy Dr Caligari and his even scarier sidekick, Cesare. From there on, their (mis)adventure takes in shocking plot twists, weird sets and ever-shifting boundaries between the real and unreal. Unsettling, haunting and impossible to forget, The Cabinet of Dr Caligari is a film that was years ahead of its time when it was made, and still has a real power over audiences even now.
