"Nosferatu" (1922) was directed by German director F.W. Murneau and was an unauthorized version of Dracula. The film begins in a fictional German town, where real estate agent Thomas Hutter travels to close a deal with the reclusive Count Orlok. However he soon discovers that Orlok is no ordinary man. Nosferatu is widely considered one of the most influential films from the silent era.
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920)
Showtime: Friday, October 29th, 7-9pm
"The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" (1920) is the most well-known film of German director Robert Wiene. The film is a strange murder mystery considered by some film critics to be the first true horror movie. The film is considered the quintessential German Expressionist film, with its strange lighting effects and dark, twisted visual style.
