This intriguing text overturns a myth of film history by examining new evidence surrounding the authorship of Das Cabinet des Dr. Caligari - a film that still exerts its gothic spell after nearly a century. A new introduction considers the place of German Expressionist cinema within the European revival of Gothic at the turn of the 20th century.
