Directed by Robert Wiene. With Werner Krauss and Conrad Veidt. The granddaddy of German Expressionist films is an eerie, twisted psychodrama that unfolds on artificial, abstract sets. A carnival hypnotist commands a sleepwalker to commit a series of grisly murders. “One of the most exciting and inspired horror movies ever made” —Time Out Film Guide. Restored version. The movie will be introduced by CWRU film studies professor (and horror film expert) Rob Spadoni.
