Alright you film aficionados; it’s time to revisit one of the landmark films that you were forced to watch in school. The German silent film THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI has received what looks to be an amazing restoration and is heading back to theaters after almost 100 years since its initial release.

Released in 1920, THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI has still remained one of the most inspiring films ever made thanks to stunning design and horror atmosphere (for the time anyways).The first trailer for The restoration is here in 4K quality and it’s simply stunning. I initially thought it was a remake of the film, that’s how good it looks.

One of the most iconic masterpieces in cinema history, Robert Wiene's Das Cabinet des Dr Caligari shook filmgoers worldwide and changed the direction of the art form. Now presented in a definitive restoration, the film's chilling, radically expressionist vision is set to grip viewers again.

At a local carnival in a small German town, hypnotist Dr. Caligari presents the somnambulist Cesare, who can purportedly predict the future of curious fairgoers. But at night, the doctor wakes Cesare from his sleep to enact his evil bidding...

Incalculably influential, the film's nightmarishly jagged sets, sinister atmospheric and psychological emphasis left an immediate impact in its wake (horror, film noir, and gothic cinema would all be shaped directly by it). But this diabolical tale nevertheless stands alone - now more mesmerising than ever!

THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI restoration hits theaters in the UK on August 29th 2014, and will be released on Blu-ray in September.

If you've never heard of it before, welcome to silent film 101. If you have seen it before, what do you think?

This looks beautiful, and is definitely one of my favorite silent films. Less remakes, more of this.

Love this movie! I wish I'd been forced to watch it in school, haha. It's a lot of fun and holds up really well even after 95 years. Restoration looks nice, too!

Landmark piece of cinema. Glad it's not a colorization or (God forbid) 3D or anything like that.
