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 at 7:00 by CWRU film studies professor (and horror film expert) Rob Spadoni.
(Germany, 1920, silent with English intertitles and music track, color-tinted b&w, Blu-ray, 75 min.)
