Considered by many to be the first true horror film, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) not only holds that title, but exists as the quintessential definitive piece of German expressionist cinema. The film portrays not only its characters but the world itself is out of joint. The story of the insane Dr. Caligari and the somnambulist Cesare who follows Caligari’s horrific orders, the film anticipates Hitler and the German soldiers who “are only following orders”.
