‘Das Cabinet Des Dr. Caligari’ TRAILER Revealed!

Dr CaligariEureka! Entertainment have revealed the full length theatrical trailer for the forthcoming theatrical & home video release of DAS CABINET DES DR. CALIGARI. The film will be released theatrically in selected cinemas nationwide on 29 August 2014 which will be followed by a Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition as part of Eureka’s award-winning the Masters of Cinema Series on 29 September 2014. 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…

*Please keep in mind that when the Blu-ray is released it will be Region LOCKED and will only play on Region Free Blu-ray players.

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.

The finalised list of special features for the home video release are listed below:

– New high-definition presentation, from the extensive FWMS restoration

– Audio commentary by film historian David Kalat

– New video essay by film critic David Cairns

– Caligari: How Horror Came to the Cinema: a new 52 Minute documentary on the film.

– Re-release trailer

– PLUS: A 56-page booklet with new writing, reprints and rare archival imagery
