Caligari's Cure -- Gloriously self-aggrandizing filmmaker Tom Palazzolo made an impressive feature debut with Caligari's Cure. If you know your Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, you'll remember that the climax of this 1919 German film revealed that the ostensible villain was actually a psychiatrist, and the nominal hero a certified looney. Palazzolo utilizes generous chunks of Caligari, comparing the expressionistic extremes of the earlier film's director Robert Wiene with modern artistic trends. It's a fairly obvious stylistic exercise, but it's just as entertaining as Palazzolo's hallucinatory short subjects. Caligari's Cure would make a felicitous double feature with the 1988 shorts collection Palazzolo's Chicago. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

Adapted and directed by Thomas Riccio.This is an adaptation of the play from the influential 1920s German film written by Hans Janowitz and Carl Mayer.

In a small village, Francis and his friend Alan visit a carnival where they meet Dr. Caligari and the somnambulist Cesare, who can supposedly divine the future. His curiosity piqued by the large number of murders around town, Alan asks Cesare how long he has to live. Cesare tells him he will die at dawn. When this prophecy comes true, Francis and his girlfriend Jane start investigating Dr. Caligari and Cesare. During their research, they learn “Caligari” is the director of an insane asylum, obsessed with the story of a medieval Dr. Caligari, who used a somnambulist to murder people as a traveling act, however not everything is as it seems.
