One of the most iconic masterpieces in cinema history, Robert Wiene's Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari shook filmgoers worldwide and changed the direction of the art form. Now presented in a definitive restoration, the film's chilling, radically expressionist vision is set to grip viewers again.
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...Incalculably influential, the film's nightmarishly jagged sets, sinister atmospheric and psychological emphasis left an immediate impact in its wake (horror, film noir, and gothic cinema would all be shaped directly by it). But this diabolical tale nevertheless stands alone - now more mesmerising than ever in this new Dual-Format special edition.

Firstly, I've only given this purchase 5 out of 5 because there's no option to give it 10 out of 5, which I would if I could. The film itself is the single most important horror genre film ever made, but with the new transfer & cleanup presented by Masters of Cinema/ Eureka, this film has never looked better. And just in case you don't have a bluray player, don't panic, it comes with a DVD copy until you manage to make your way to the 21st Century. If you're still reading this review - STOP. Click the "Add to Cart" option, buy it, then come back. The extras are amazing, but it's the film quality and transfer that are truly magnificent and worth the purchase price alone. This is the release to purchase for this film. Other versions currently on the market have a different compression ratio which creates block pixelization. This version is pristine, clean, and very, very watchable. Again. And again. And again! My only gripe is that no versions currently on the market have the John Zorn soundtrack as used at the official release for this edition. Other than that, you NEED to have this release in your collection. Now... Thanks zavvi. Great price. Delivered on time. I'd buy this again in a heart beat!
