Dir. Robert Wiene

Germany 1919 | Black & white | 73 mins @ 18 fps | Cert U | Horror | Silent

Cast: Werner Krauss, Conrad Veidt

With its jagged, stylized sets, evocative shadows, and themes of murder, madness, and delirium, Wiene’s film remains the source and essence of German Expressionist Cinema. Fusing carnival spectacle with the paranoia of the psychological thriller, it centres on the haunting, sexually ambivalent presence of Conrad Veidt, as a somnambulist exploited as an instrument of murder by the sinister Dr Caligari.

Available on: 35mm
