6. Das Kabinett des Doktor Caligari
The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari
This was my favorite movie from the list so far which was weird because I felt like my friends and I could have performed it in my backyard. When (and I say when because you would be stupid not to watch it) you see it, you feel like you are in a theater. Not only are the sets really fake and crazy-looking, but the camera does not move a lot. Still, I loved it!
This movie's plot is within a plot because the story is told by a man in an asylum. Several murders take place and I do not want to give away the ending but suffice to say there are some pretty intriguing plot twists. Finally, a silent movie that you can pay attention to!
I thought this movie was about five times more interesting than the others. Although this movie strongly resembles a Tim Burton (I don't like Tim Burton) and has a zombie-like character in it ( I don't like zombie movies) it still is a must see, if only for pure entertainment.
The first true horror film.
The shadows were painted on the walls and the sets were made out of paper. It was a bit of an exaggeration when I said me and my friends could perform this because the sets actually have a bizarrely professional look about them and we are not very artistic.
You should really forget what I said about watching the other movies. I mean I know I went on about cinematography and all that shit but this is pure entertainment! Go see it!
