Details

A horror masterpiece from Weimar-era Germany, directed by Robert Wiene.

At a local carnival in a small German town, hypnotist Dr. Caligari presents the somnambulist Cesare, who can purportedly predict the future of curious fairgoers. But at night, the doctor wakes Cesare from his sleep to enact his evil bidding... 

Exerting an incalculable influence on cinema to come, the film's nightmarishly angular sets, sinister atmospherics and psychological emphasis has had an obvious impact on the horror, film noir, and gothic genres. But this diabolical tale nevertheless stands alone.
