Wiki

Four films representing one of the greatest bursts of creative energy in the history of cinema. Includes the first time available titles, THE HANDS OF ORLAC and SECRETS OF A SOUL.


The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari
Director: Robet Wiene
Country: Germany
Year: 1919
A masterpiece of psychological horror and the film that has come to epitomize the mysterious highly stylized German Expressionist cinema. A demented hypnotist and his ghastly henchman spread death througout the German countryside. Newly remastered from the archival German material and tinted according to original instructions with evocative score. Germany. 1919. 73 min. Color tinted.

WARNING SHADOWS: A Nocturnal Hallucination
Director: Arthur Robison
Country: Germany
Year: 1923
Arthur Robison's classic take of psychological horror, celebrated for its outrageous visual style and notorious for its attempt to make a purely visual feature film.

The Hands of Orlac
Director: Robet Wiene
Country: Austria
Year: 1924
HANDS OF ORLAC is a deliciously twisted thriller that blends grand guignol thrills with the visual and performance styles of German Expressionism.

Secrets of a Soul
Director: G. W. Pabst
Country: Germany
Year: 1926
In the 1920s, film studios around the world sought to capitalize on the public's curiosity about the newborn science of psychoanalysis. In 1925, Hans Neumann (of Ufa's Kulturfilm office) contacted members of Sigmund Freud's inner circle with a plan to make a dramatic film that explores the mystifying process of the interpretation of dreams. With the help of noted psychologists Karl Abraham and Hanns Sachs, and under the direction of G.W. Pabst (Pandora's Box), SECRETS OF A SOUL was completed.
