Join us for the 4.15 screening of this Expressionist horror classic - a highlight of the BFI's "Gothic" season.
"Expressionism abounds to memorable effect in Wiene’s landmark horror film about a hypnotist who has turned a young man into a somnambulist (Veidt on superlative, highly stylised form) and uses him to carry out a series of murders and crimes. The jagged painted sets, the performances and the narrative structure all serve to create a febrile, dreamlike atmosphere of paranoia and uncertainty. – Geoff Andrew
With live piano accompaniment by Costas Fotopoulos.
