Disutradarai oleh Robert Wiene (1919), film ini bercerita mengenai Dr. Caligari dan serangkaian pembunuhan yang dilakukan oleh Cesare, seorang somnambulis yang ia hipnotis. Dengan setting dan kostum yang stilistik, karya ini menjadi salah satu tonggak awal film horor & psikologis.

Caligari (Werner Krauss), a fairground charlatan, exhibits a somnambulist (Conrad Veidt) who commits murder at the doctor’s bidding. With its unprecedented sets, costumes & makeup, Robert Wiene’s revolutionary work, scripted by Carl Mayer, liberated audiences & filmmakers from the suffocating naturalistic conventions that dominated novels & theatre of the time, initiating German Expressionism & profoundly influencing horror films for several generations.

Inspired by Bram Stoker’s Dracula (renamed Nosferatu for this film after legal threats from Stoker’s estate), this film presents Max Schreck as Count Orlock (Count Dracula), giving the world one of the most lasting haunting imagery.
