The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari 2005

Wiki: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is a 2005 independent film, and a remake of the 1920 silent film of the same name. It was directed by David Lee Fisher and released in the U.S. at the ScreamFest Film Festival on October 22, where it won three prizes – the Audience Choice Award, Best Cinematography and Best Special Effects.

An unexpectedly intense indie visual remix of the 1920 silent original, THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI. This updated version features backgrounds scanned from an original 35mm print combined with brand-new green screen footage of actors including Doug Jones (Hellboy, Fantastic 4, Pan’s Labyrinth and the upcoming Rise of the Silver Surfer) as the sinister sleepwalker “Cesare.” This classic tale takes place in the eerily beautiful, expressionistic world of the German original. Now, combined with a chilling script that expands on the silent yet twisted story of the original, the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari has been ope once again in horrifying sight and sound!
