Germany, 1920
Silent, Horror

Synopsis

Routinely cited as one of the greatest films ever made, this classic of German Expressionism presents an abstract plunge into insanity, with a sinister tale of psychosis and murder, set in a warped Gothic landscape of disorienting angles and jarring contrasts of light, shadow, and substance.
