directed by Roger Kay
USA 1962

 

Aggressively eccentric remake of the 1919 classic which strains for the weirdnesses that just seemed to flow naturally from the original. Johns is a woman whose car breaks down near to the estate of the mysterious Caligari (O'Herlihy) - and here's the first problem. Wiene's Caligari occupied a world gone mad; Kay's Caligari is just another nutcase with a country estate, offering the kind of hospitality usually best refused from Peter Cushing or Christopher Lee.

A new vein of obscenity adds nothing to the atmosphere, either. But this is rarely screened, so the opportunity to view a genuine oddity from the writer of Psycho is probably best taken.

Comments:

This edition includes both the widescreen (2.35:1) release and the pan-and-scan (1.33) version on the opposite side of the dual-sided DVD. It is quite astonishing to see how much is actually missing from the 'full-frame' edition (see below).

The print used was in generally decent shape but I did notice a strange phenomenon on a few scene shifts (see last large capture) with a strange 'snowy' appearance in the last frame before the transition. It generally unnoticeable in viewing but it was a curious find. As always the widescreen edition (even anamorphic) is slightly less sharp than the 1.33- but it is minimal and we, of course, recommend the widescreen for viewing as this was the theatrical intent. Decent contrast, but nothing outstanding - the original audio was quite consistent. No extras save a trailer for the film, and more trailers of Fox DVD products. A pretty interesting and bizarre film no doubt and the DVD is acceptable and inexpensive.
