Critic Reviews for The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (4)

  • Interesting only for about as long as it takes to realize that Fisher has honored Weine's expressionist aesthetic but hasn't improved the original's creaky plotline.

    June 17, 2007 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • An undeniably clever commingling of a new cast (and spoken dialogue) with a silent classic. But pic fails to engage consistently on its own terms, and begins to coast on novelty value around the midway point.

    October 25, 2006
  • In his semi-remake of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, the director David Lee Fisher has accomplished something rather startling: he has out-disoriented the original.

    October 24, 2006 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Although technically impressive, the remake is dramatically inert, as the set becomes a motionless backdrop to theatrical line readings instead of a pulsing manifestation of diseased minds.

    October 24, 2006
  • It's the movie equivalent of bad fan fiction, really.

    July 12, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A competent curio reimagining of the silent-era classic.

Audience Reviews for The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

  • Oct 08, 2015
    The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is an interesting, though unexceptional film. The faults other viewers have noted are there, though I am more forgiving and consider that the acting, for instance, can work as part of the odd vibe of the film. The sets are very interesting to look at. The only serious flaw was the sound, which was quite poor. Viewed as a sideshow (and not a main attraction), the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is fine.
