The Golem Photos

Movie Info

In 16th century Prague, Rabbi Loew (Albert Steinruck) interprets an alignment of stars as a sign that disaster is about to befall the city's Jews. The following day, Emperor Luhois (Otto Gebühr) bans Loew's people from Prague, prompting the rabbi to build a statue, known as the Golem (Paul Wegener), that he hopes to animate as a savior. Brought to life by an evil spirit, Astaroth, the creature is, at first, gentle and compassionate. That, however, quickly changes as the creature goes insane.

Critic Reviews for The Golem

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (30)

  • Wegener is the Golem, and he is uncanny in the suggestion of the supernatural in his face and movements.

  • The production is an impressively dignified one and the scenes of medieval limes are well visualized, with some magnificent mob scenes. The cast has been carefully selected with a view to the depiction of ancient types and are all excellent.

    October 13, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Fascinating, exciting to the imagination, and yet so unfamiliar in all of its aspects that it always seems remote, elusive even, when one would like to get closer to its meaning.

    October 13, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The methods of production are always interesting, and, unlike some films which come to us from Germany, it combines with some clever clever effects a gripping story.

    October 13, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Although the picture itself is fascinating enough, many... will take a great pleasure in studying the vagaries of the silent, horrible monster who stalks to and fro, minus human intelligence, yet endowed with a wistful longing to mingle with [humans].

    October 13, 2020 | Full Review…
  • This is a film of deceptive complexity whose influence continued to be felt for many years.
