Description by OLDIES.com:
The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari: A masterpiece of psychological horror and the film that has come to epitomize the mysterious highly stylized German Expressionist cinema. A demented hypnotist and his ghastly henchman spread death throughout the German countryside. Newly remastered from the archival German material and tinted according to original instructions with evocative score. Germany. 1919. 73 min. Color tinted.
Warning Shadows - A Nocturnal Hallucination: Arthur Robison's classic take of psychological horror, celebrated for its outrageous visual style and notorious for its attempt to make a purely visual feature film.
The Hands of Orlac: A deliciously twisted thriller that blends grand guignol thrills with the visual and performance styles of German Expressionism.
Secrets of a Soul: In the 1920s, film studios around the world sought to capitalize on the public's curiosity about the newborn science of psychoanalysis. In 1925, Hans Neumann (of Ufa's Kulturfilm office) contacted members of Sigmund Freud's inner circle with a plan to make a dramatic film that explores the mystifying process of the interpretation of dreams. With the help of noted psychologists Karl Abraham and Hanns Sachs, and under the direction of G.W. Pabst (Pandora's Box), Secrets of a Soul was completed.
