Prepare to be thrilled, dazzled, and thoroughly spooked by Waxworks, one of the highlights of German Expressionist horror, available at last in a digitally recombined and restored version. Directed by Paul Leni, whose creative wizardry would later lead him to Hollywood, this eerie silent classic features three tales inspired by the figures in a waxworks museum: Ivan the Terrible, Harun al-Rashid, and Jack the Ripper. With powerful star performances, flamboyant production design, and brilliant technical effects, Waxworks conjures up three very different, dangerous worlds inhabited by monstrous personalities.


With an introduction by acclaimed silent film accompanist Neil Brand.
