YEAR RELEASED: 1962
DIRECTOR: Roger Kay
CAST: Glynis Johns, Dan O’Herlihy and Richard Davalos
PLOT: Jane’s car breaks down and she makes her way to a nearby estate, owned by a mysterious man named Caligari. Soon she finds that she has become a virtual prisoner, and none of the strange inhabitants of the estate are willing or capable of helping her escape. Caligari reveals himself as a passive pervert, showing her filthy pictures, spying on her, and trying to make her talk about intimate details of her life. She attempts to free herself by the only means at her disposal.
140-CHARACTER MINI-REVIEW: This 1962 film bares little relation to 1920 German classic namesake, but The Cabinet of Caligari is atmospheric horror with cool plot twist.
