Midnight Movies from The Public Domain

Thank heaven for archive.org

This week's offering:
Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari (The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari) directed by Robert Weine from 1920
"The film tells the story of the deranged Dr. Caligari and his faithful sleepwalking Cesare and their connection to a string of murders in a German mountain village, Holstenwall.
Critics worldwide have praised the film for its Expressionist style, complete with wild, distorted set design. Caligari has been cited as an influence on film noir, one of the earliest horror films, and a model for directors for many decades."

And it’s #186 on imdb’s Top 250














Du mu├čt Caligari werden.
You must become Caligari.
