The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

(Robert Wiene, 1920, Germany, 79 min.)

In this landmark of German Expressionism, considered by many to be the first proper horror film, a young Conrad Veidt (Major Strasser in Casablanca) plays Cesare, a somnambulist with murderous tendencies, enabled by the hypnotist Dr. Caligari (Werner Krauss). With production design done in part by Hermann Warm (The Passion of Joan of Arc), full of painted-on shadows and harsh angles, you’re not likely to forget these sets anytime soon.
