This panel will evaluate the impact of the film on horror over the next 100 years, from specific influences (e.g., the twist ending, Expressionism in Universal horror films) to general trends in horror films (e.g., monsters, serial killers, psychological thrillers--all of which descriptions could apply to Cabinet of Caligari) and how Cabinet of Caligari continues to be relevant a century later.
