This unique interpretation of Robert Wiene's 1919 German silent film Das KABINETT des DOKTOR CALIGARI (THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI) has been much anticipated by The Doug Jones Experience. Widely understood to be one of the finest German Expressionist films ever made, CALIGARI is regarded as the first great 'horror' movie.

Innovative director David Fisher has used original footage of the film, with its eerie modernistic sets, removed the original actors and replaced them with a contemporary cast led by Doug Jones as the melancholic and sinister somnambulist Cesare. Now with sound, spoken dialogue and tinted scenes, Fisher's version of this timeless classic will take the sinister legend of Doctor Caligari into the realms of the 21st century without losing the quintessential substance of the original film.
