Library Journal Review

Credit Dr. Caligari with influencing the horror movie genre and introducing Americans to German Expressionism and twist endings. Consider also the Kino version, with a similar price (ISBN 9786307262075). (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
