Worlds first horror film comes to Telford screen
Regarded by some as the first true horror film, Das Cabinet des Dr Caligari is showing at Wellington Orbit, the seat independent cinema, at the end of the month.
The 1920 silent German movie, has rave reviews from critics, making the top 250 movies of all time list on IMDB.
Nick Hilditch "it is difficult to imagine the film done better with the benefit of sound, colour, or any innovation since."
With a dark and twisted visual style, the film features sharp-pointed forms, oblique and curving lines, structures and landscapes that lean and twist in unusual angles, and shadows and streaks of light painted directly onto the sets.
Showing on 27th of Feb at 7:30pm, Telford cinema goers have the rare chance to see the film on the big screen.
