Silent Screams at the Whaley House
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920)
Run time is 94 minutes
"A case can be made that Caligari was the first true horror film." - Roger Ebert.
"The mother lode of the horror genre, this German Expressionist movie is directed by Robert Wiene and presents a full smorgasbord of pop-eyed terror, lunatics, murderers and possessed somnambulists in its eerie shadows." - Times (UK)
"Undoubtedly one of the most exciting and inspired horror movies ever made." - Time Out.
This milestone film, known for its expressionistic sets and techniques, tells the strange tale of a sleepwalker under the spell of the mysterious and evil Dr. Caligari. The simple but compelling story is augmented by the much-acclaimed expressionist set design that is full of angles and painted shafts of light and shadow. Starring Werner Krauss and Conrad Veidt. Directed by Robert Wiene.
