Robert Wiene Germany, 1920

Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

There are few more important or more influential horror films in cinematic history than Robert Wiene's German Expressionist masterpiece, THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI. The film that started the Expressionist movement, CALIGARI is a frenzied, stylish nightmare about a mad psychiatrist and his murderous somnambulist, Cesar. From the dynamic, dreamlike design to the oft-copied twist, CALIGARI has never been equaled.
