Eureka Entertainment to Release Newly Restored The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

Posted May 14, 2014 04:19 PM by Webmaster

British distributors Eureka Entertainment have announced that it plans to release on Blu-ray and DVD director Robert Wiene's masterpiece The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920), starring Werner Krauss, Conrad Veidt, and Friedrich Feher. The British distributors will release the film in cinemas around the UK & Eire and on Blu-ray and DVD later this summer.

The legendary silent film was recently restored by Murnau-Stiftung in collaboration with the Bundesarchiv-Filmarchiv and L'Immagine Ritrovata - Film Restoration and Conservation. Earlier this year, the new restoration had its world premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival.

Synopsis: This classic piece of German expressionist cinema employs stylized sets, costumes and make-up to tell its story from a shifting point of view. Dr Caligari runs a side show at a fair where a somnambulist predicts someone's death and that night the person is murdered. The somnambulist turns out to be a lunatic from a local asylum and Dr. Caligari the asylum's insane director.

Note: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari: The Making-of A Restoration video included with this news announcement is provided by BertelsmannSE.

There's a pretty good chance that Eureka will put out a steelbook.

2/3 Eureka BDs I own are B locked. It seems they lock their catalog since some have Eureka exclusive special features.

They region lock their releases ONLY because licensors or other distributors demand it. It is in their best interest to put out region free titles and sell as many copies as possible, but sadly, that decision making is out of their hands.

I would expect Kino to be releasing this in North America. But when is the question.

Eureka put out the worldwide best release of Nosferatu ever, so let's hope they can do the same with this classic.

Awesome news – can’t wait to see it all restored. 95-years old -- cinema as a time machine.
