The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
It’s been a while since we did something not related to metal, but I discovered this movie yesterday, which is said to be the first horror movie. I won’t go into depth about who directed it or who has the main role etc. but I do want to tell you that it’s a silent movie, and that it’s an Expressionistic movie, which can be seen from the decors they’re using.
The story goes as follows:
A man named Francis relates a story about his best friend Alan and his fiancée Jane. Alan takes him to a fair where they meet Dr. Caligari, who exhibits a somnambulist, Cesare, that can predict the future.
When Alan asks how long he has to live, Cesare says he has until dawn. The prophecy comes to pass, as Alan is murdered, and Cesare is a prime suspect.
The movie lasts about 50 minutes but is definitely worth watching.
Below I have the whole movie on Youtube, for your watching pleasure.
