The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) Review:

Considered as one of the first horror movie ever made, this film owes its very particular atmosphere to its odd look and the fact that it is silent. I personally did not watch a lot of mute movies before and that’s probably why it affected me so much. The poor image quality, the painted landscape and the incessant music help at creating a very bizarre and creepy atmosphere. The plot is surprisingly complex and intriguing, even as compared to modern movies. What I first thought would be a movie “for artist and cinema student only” is actually a great and entertaining horror classic. It made me up with black and white silent movies and gave me the taste to see more from that period. A most recommended experience!
