The restored authorized editions of four complete feature films: NOSFERATU, THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI, THE GOLEM, and WAXWORKS, plus over two hours of supplemental material.

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.  
The Golem
Directors: Carl Boese, Paul Wegener
Country: Germany
Year: 1920
Recognized as the source of the Frankenstein myth, an ancient Hebrew legend provides the substance for one of the most adventurous films of the early German cinema and a landmark in the evolution of the horror film. Suffering under the tyrannical rule of a merciless despot, a 16th century Talmudic rabbi creates a giant clay warrior that comes to life in a grand scale climax.
Nosferatu

Director: F. W. Murnau
Country: Germany
Year: 1922
This new presentation of Murnau's classic is mastered from original German material recently made available to Kino and is the most complete version available. An expressionist retelling of Bram Stoker's Dracula so faithful to the original tale of vampirism that Stoker's widow sued.
Waxworks
Director: Paul Leni
Country: Germany
Year: 1924
In this rarely seen masterwork of German expressionism, a trilogy of terror is woven around the wax figures of a carnival side show. Jack the Ripper (Werner Krauss); Ivan the Terrible (Conrad Veidt), and Haroun al Raschid all spring to life through a variety of visual techniques.
