An extraordinary combination of expressionist visual style and psychological horror story, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is one of the most striking and influential of all silent films. Dr. Caligari is a deranged hypnotist who spreads death from his traveling carnival. His star attraction is Cesare, a spidery sleepwalker who obeys Caligari’s every command. Perfect for Halloween eve and shown in a new digital restoration!
