The Golem (1920) Review:

If The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari if often considered as the first full-length horror movie ever made, The Golem is often listed as second. Like all movies from this period of time, The Golem is silent and the story is told via on-screen written sentences that alternate with the video. The all thing is then played alongside orchestral classical music. Like Nosferatu, these movies are slow paced and typically focus on the atmosphere, so you must be in the mood for something of the kind in order to enjoy it. This film was released in Germany and the music for this movie was composed by Black Francis, Hans Landsberger, Karl-Ernst Sasse, Aljoscha Zimmermann.
